Bill Buckner on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' This Sunday

Once upon a time, the mere mention of Bill Buckner‘s name would make Red Sox fans turn pale. But time heels all wounds (especially when your team wins two World Series), and Sox fans aren’t particularly bothered when Buckner’s name comes up nowadays. It’s even gotten to the point where Buckner can have a good laugh at the iconic moment when Mookie Wilson‘s ground ball rolled through his legs in the 1986 World Series. The former Red Sox first baseman is making a guest appearance on this Sunday’s episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm (1o p.m. ET on HBO). The theme of this week’s episode is haunted pasts, and Buckner will reportedly help Larry David get past a scarring softball incident from his past.

Good for Buckner. Everyone knows that ground ball wasn’t his fault anyway; the guy could barely walk and he shouldn’t have been on the field in that situation! Former Red Sox manager John McNamara should have been the one vilified for not putting Dave Stapleton in as a defensive replacement!

(OK, some Red Sox fans aren’t completely over it.)
