Boston: Storrow Drive - Reverse the Curse

The famous REVERSE THE CURSE, mounted on the Longfellow Bridge, on Storrow Drive WB just after it stops being Embankment Drive. There of course is a button-copy V under the S, but it's greened over. Naturally, the MDC didn't want to replace or repair this sign... but it sure didn't seem to be working. After the Red Sox finally won in 2004, there was an elaborate ceremony to take down the sign. Two out of three lanes were closed, backing traffic up even onto I-93.
