Osen'yu 2004 goda Red Sox beysbol'noy komandy Boston slomal 86-letnego proklyatiya, oni skazali, vyzvannyye zlopoluchnogo resheniya predydushchego vladel'tsa prodat' Beyb Rut v N'yu-York Yankiz. Vniz tri igry v pley-off amerikanskoy ligi, to Red Sox bit' yanki chetyre igry pryamo i poshel dal'she, chtoby vyigrat' World Series v nachisto chetyrekh igr. Oni imeyut neosporimoye pretenzii k slave i bogatstvu. Tem ne meneye, u menya yest' drugoy vzglyad na "proklyatiye".

Vspomnite 1912 god V aprele togo zhe goda Titanik zatonul v severnoy chasti Atlanticheskogo okeana. V noyabre byl trekhstoronniy prezidentskaya gonka mezhdu Vudro Vil'sona, Uil'yam Govard Taft, i Teodor Ruzvel't rabotayet na bilete "Bull Moose". The Boston Red Sox byli glavnym komandoy v beysbole Vysshey ligi, vyigrav oba chempionata Amerikanskoy ligi i World Series. Ikh tuz kuvshin v etom godu, "Smoki Dzho" Vud, byl zvezdoy komandy.

Dzho Vud, izvestnyy svoim pylayushchim Fastball, sostavil rekord 34 pobed i 5 porazheniy (i 1,91 ERA) v 1912 regulyarnogo sezona. On vyigral tri igry World Series. Posle pobedy nad Val'terom Dzhonson 1-0 10 sentyabrya, Dzhonson skazal: "Ni odin chelovek zhiv ne brosayet bystreye, chem Dzho Vud." Eto ob"yasnyayet nazvaniye "Smoki Dzho". U nego byl bystryy myach, kotoryy kopchenuyu.

V sleduyushchem godu Smoki Dzho povredil ruku v rezul'tate neschastnogo sluchaya i nikogda ne vosstanovila svoyu formu pobednuyu. Vud razbili yeshche tri sezona s Red Sox, prezhde chem idti s Klivlend, gde on igral v dal'ney chasti polya. On byl na tom zhe kachka personala kak Beyb Rut i byl drugom Tris spikera. Bol'shuyu chast' svoyey vzrosloy zhizni, Smoki Dzho Vud byl trenerom beysbol'noy golovoy v Yyel'skom universitete. (Pervyy prezident Bush byl kapitanom beysbol'noy komandy Yyel'skogo v 1948 g. YA ne znayu, yesli Dzho Vud yeshche treniroval komandu.)

dva syna Smokey Dzho, Dzho mladshiy i Stiv, vzbaltyvayut v techeniye mnogikh let, chto ikh otets izbran v Zal slavy beysbola v Cooperstown, N'yu-York. Khotya eksponat upomyanul o nem, on nikogda ne byl ofitsial'no vveden. Kogda Minnesota senator Yudzhin Makkarti provel kampaniyu na post prezidenta v 1968 godu N'yu-Gempshir praymeriz, on sformiroval mgnovennuyu svyaz' s izbiratelyami Novoy Anglii, rekomenduya Smoki Dzho Vud dlya induktsii v Zal slavy beysbola.

YA znayu, chto-to ob etom, potomu chto, kak mal'chik otdykhal v severo-vostochnoy Pensil'vanii v nachale 1950-kh godov, ya inogda poseshchal glushi dom syna Smokey Dzho Vuda, Dzho-mladshiy. kotoryy zhil tam so svoyey zhenoy Garriyet i ikh detey, Devid, Kerolayn, i rebenka, kotoryy nravilsya vkus piva. V 1940 godu Boston Red Soks podpisali Dzho-mladshiy s premiyey. On razbil dlya etoy komandy v techeniye neskol'kikh sezonov bez uspekha yego ottsa.

Mladshiy Dzho Vud obnalicheny v yego beysbol'noy pribyli, chtoby stat' vladel'tsem rancho norka. YA pomnyu ryady provolochnyye kletki na sklone kholma, ryadom s lesom doma, v desyati kilometrakh ot blizhayshego goroda. Kazhdyy den', Dzho Vud-mladshiy budet slepit' pirozhok svezhey koniny na verkhney chasti kletki dlya norok, chtoby poyest'. On kupil staryye loshadey dlya razdelki. Bol'she chem odin raz, ya yekhal bez sedla s vnukami Smokey Dzho cherez zemli zarazhennykh gremuchey.

Sam Smoki Dzho byl dom na Parkera "s Glen Roud v Shohola Gorodke, prosto vniz po doroge ot svoyego syna, gde on zhil sam po sebe v techeniye leta. YA dumayu, chto on byl vdovtsom togda. Zimoy on zhil v Novom Kheyven so svoyey docher'yu Dzhinni. Vremya ot vremeni on prikhodil v Milford, gde moi roditeli byli doma. Oni govoryat, chto Smoki Dzho imel obyknoveniye sidet' v shezlonge vdol' tret'yey bazovoy linii, chtoby smotret' deti igrayut Malen'kaya beysbol'noy ligi v Milford. Moi dva brat'ya igrali v beysbol v etoy oblasti letom 1954 goda.

YA vstretil Smoki Dzho tol'ko odin raz. Eto bylo letom 1958 goda ya shel po shosse mezhdu Milford i Port Dzhervis, kogda vdrug mashina ostanovilas', chtoby dat' mne yezdu. Smoki Dzho Vud byl voditelem. Znaya svoikh roditeley, on byl osvedomlen o tom, chto ya planiroval postupit' v Yyel', kotoryye padayut.

V techeniye neskol'kikh minut, chto ya yekhal v mashine, Smoki Dzho Vud byli nekotoryye interesnyye veshchi, chtoby skazat'. On rasskazal mne, kak rad on byl, chto beysbol lyubiteli etogo dnya prodolzhali vspominat' svoyu kar'yeru. On skazal, chto on poluchal stol'ko pisem ot poklonnikov, zaprashivayushchikh avtografy, kak nikogda ran'she.

Smoki Dzho takzhe polozhit' v zaglushke dlya sporta beysbol, v otlichiye ot universitetskiy ekipazha. "Ni odin moy syn ne budet poprobovat' dlya ekipazha," zayavil on. Etot vid sporta byl slishkom zhestkim na serdtse, skazal on. Slishkom mnogo byvshikh chlenov ekipazha upal zamertvo ot serdechnogo pristupa v ikh 50-ykh. Vozmozhno, staryye spory po povodu nasiliya kolledzha sporta po-prezhnemu problema s nim.

Smoki Dzho Vud zhil khorosho v yego 90-kh godov prezhde chem pereyti letom 1985 Te, kto byl svidetelem yego vydayushcheysya kar'yery s Red Sox sami po bol'shey chasti ushli. Segodnya yest' i drugiye sportivnyye obozrevateli geroyev, chtoby otmetit', kak zolotoy moment beysbol'nogo sezona 1912 goda stanovitsya dalekoy pamyati. Smoki Dzho byl sredi fantomnykh starozhilov, upomyanutykh v fil'me, «Pole chudes». No Dzho Vud nikogda ne sdelal yego v Zal slavy.

Zatem, chudesnym obrazom, v voskresen'ye, 29 fevralya 2004, Smoki Dzho Vud byl vveden v Ted Uil'yams muzey i zal slavy v Citrus Hills, shtat Florida, naryadu s tremya drugimi igrokami. Synov'ya Smokey Dzho, Dzho mladshiy i Stiv, teper' oba mertvy. Na ostayushcheyesya syn, Bob, zhivet v N'yu-Gempshir. Tem ne meneye, Dzho Vud nakonets dali priblizheniye chest' yemu otkazano v techeniye mnogikh let. I eto, po moyemu mneniyu gallyutsinatornoy, yavlyayetsya prichinoy togo, chto proklyatiye protiv Boston Red Sox byl snyat v tom zhe godu.
