Terrell Suggs: Science denier

Everybody knows that Drew Brees and Sean Payton have never beaten the Ravens.  Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs chooses not to know.
"I don't believe that, I don't believe that," linebacker Terrell Suggs said when a reporter pointed out that fact. "Didn't I tell you all about the no-hitter [rule regarding jinxes]? You guys are the worst."

Brees is 0-3 lifetime against the Ravens, throwing six touchdowns and seven interceptions. He has completed 59.5 percent of his throws against Baltimore, a drop from his career 66.2 percent completion rate. Brees has a passer rating of 73.2 against the Ravens, which is tied for his second-worst against any team in the league.
He's not going to believe the facts you tell him even if the science necessary to verify them involves nothing more complicated than counting to three. A little superstition in sports can be fun.. but some of these guys get a little carried away.  Am I right, ESPN?

Speaking of superstitions, I'm convinced  the Ravens curse emanates from this 2006 game when a Baltimore native in our group decided it would be cute if she wore a goddamn  purple sweater under her Saints gear to the Superdome and then make faces the whole time.

Purple Sweater

I hope she's still as pleased with herself.
