As Red Sox break curse, faithful fan Maria Shriver breaks foot
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The curse of the Bambino wasn�t the only thing that was shattered during the Boston Red Sox�s championship run.

Faithful Red Sox fan Maria Shriver broke her foot.

California�s first lady injured herself while watching the fifth playoff game between Boston and the New York Yankees. When Boston�s David Ortiz smacked a 14th-inning single, an excited Shriver jumped off the sofa�landing on one of her children�s cast-off shoes and breaking her foot.

Shriver is wearing a brace, and doctors said it will take about three months for the injury to heal.

Shriver and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger have four children.

The Red Sox, who had been down three games, went on to win the next four and advance to the World Series, which they won Wednesday night in St. Louis.
