In their 52-year history, the St. Louis Blues have never won the Stanley Cup.
A St. Louis newspaper gave its readers a sneak peek of what part of the sports section would look like if the Blues won the cup, and some believe it may lead to the team and city becoming cursed.
The St. Louis Dispatch sent the sneak peek to some of its readers ahead of Sunday’s Game 6, the first chance the Blues have to win their first title.
In preparation for the outcome of the Stanley Cup Final, some of our readers got a sneak peak at what our advertisers are hoping to say to the Blues, the fans and St. Louis. We apologize for the sneak peak and hope to share their messages with everyone very soon!

Fans were immediately up in arms about the sneak peek, believing it would curse the Blues, who will get the opportunity to win the series at home.
…. did we just watch the birth of a curse.

If the Blues don’t win Sunday, they’ll still have a chance to win the series in Game 7 in Boston.
If they don’t win the series, the sneak peek has a chance to be remembered forever.
