    Crest on the West

    Little did we realise that was all that was needed to win The Scottish Cup.

    Perhaps now we can kick on and have a special relationship with the trophy.

    There now 3 Harps not 2. Thanks to a Hibby based in Leeds, the bounce and St Patrick's Branch, the Harp Mosiac have as my avatar now stands proudly in the main lobby of the West Stand between the statues for our founding fathers, Canon Edward Hannan and Michael Whelehan.

    I know some of you will think it bunkum, but the return of the Harp to our club, has, for me and many others, helped our football club win the Scottish Cup.

    Too bloody right it did. This WAS a curse. Now it's been lifted.

    I mean think about it We've not lifted the Cup since about tea-time yesterday

    Maybe not only the curse of the Scottish Cup but the curse of being second best in big games, who knows maybe this one game will change the mindset and attitude at Easter Road be it management, players or supporters only time will tell but for today let us all savour the day and enjoy.

    Everyone's words of support are helping me thru this. I appreciate every comment, prayer and positive thought.

    Guys and girls I can't emphasise how much your words are encouraging and helping me. This battle has barely started but I know you'll be by my side every step of the way - it's giving me great strength - Shaun 16/03/2016

    Breaking the curse - it does appear that getting the crest(s) on the West may have contributed to us winning the Scottish Cup!

    Now that ours is finally over , it got me thinking about other woeful runs in competitions by professional sports teams:

    • Boston Redsox went 86 years without winning the Baseball World Series - "The Curse of the Bambino" (no, not that one)
    • Of course there's several "top" sides never to have won the FA Cup, Crystal Palace last weekend just one of them
    • And spare a thought for the Chicago Cubs, not won the World Series since 1907


    Can anyone think of any other good examples?

    Sevco have yet to win a major trophy. Perhaps I'm being a bit harsh given their short lifespan but for a team with such a large support it's still notable.

    Dundee haven't won the Scottish Cup in 106 years. Think they have taken over from us now we won it. Hopefully they don't win it in the next 9 years and beat our record!!

    Jets haven't won the Super Bowl in 50 years. Must be a while since Queen's Park won the cup too.

    I'm in the process of adding Hibs' Scottish Cup curse to the Wikipedia page of sporting curses. For some reason we're not on there whilst sides like Birmingham are?

    We weren't cursed, we were just biding our time to make the victory that much sweeter.
