Reverse the curse 

MIT has won the Putnam Mathematical Competition, snapping a 25-year-long streak of futility that included three second-place finishes in the last five years. Longtime rival Harvard finished second, marking the fourth time in the last ten years that Harvard has not won.

Perhaps this is a good omen for another talented Boston team that has also experienced a long championship drought and has often finished second to its bitter, much more handsomely endowed rivals.
