Jimmy Carter joins the Curses
by Bobby Chang
Curse of Jimmy Carter. Jimmy Carter didn't want Americans marching on Luzinski Stadium in 1980. Thirty-eight years later, an American Outlaws group will not be marching in the stadium. It is now officially a curse on American teams at what was Lenin Stadium in 1980, and now Luzinski Stadium now.
For further information on the Curse of Jimmy Carter, this document is now officially part of the curse.
Harvey Weinstein Scandal. Much of Mr. Weinstein's library is now owned by Al Jazeera through its entertainment brand. The colossal failure of the United States aired on Al Jazeera, no less.
Worse Than NFL Ratings Disaster for Fox. This isn't as bad as the price Fox will pay for the US failure to qualify for the World Cup. It's a double whammy now since it makes all of what they've sold for the World Cup pennies on the dollar. In effect, Fox is now declaring "bankruptcy" on their FIFA contract since the have to return billions in advertising sold for the games since the US failed to make it. The colossal failure, which aired on Al Jazeera last night (now note Al Jazeera owns much of the Harvey Weinstein Library through Miramax) since Trinidad & Tobago's football federation has home game rights in the US sold to Al Jazeera, means Fox has a "white elephant" in World Cup rights for Russia.
The NFL ratings flop is not as bad as what Fox will endure all 2018 with the Curse of Jimmy Carter. They may not make it up in the next FIFA cycle.
