A new Sports Hex application is available on iTunes and it offers fans the ability to place a curse on an opposing team or player for the low price of $0.99. Hexes are available in the form of Voodoo, Brujeria, or Chaos Witchcraft. Here’s the description from their iTunes page:
“SportsHex is an application that allows fans to cast hexes on opposing teams or players using real practitioners of black magic. Identify your target, select a hex/practitioner, and hit the “cast” button. Your target’s name is instantly sent to an inbox which has been cursed by the chosen practitioner.”
Look, I don’t know if the person casting a hex is the same dude the Dodgers were paying multiple thousands to channel them positive energy from Russia, but no way this works, right? Or are we so desperate as sports fans that we’re willing to shell out a buck just to try and turn the tides? I suppose if I’m a San Jose Sharks fan, what’s an extra 99 cents when you’re trying not to become the fourth team to blow a 3-0 series lead in the playoffs. Just tell me you’re not one of the suckers. Then again, that’s gotta be more worth your money than this idiotic app.
