It is thought that they did. Known as the curse of Billy Penn, it started when a building was built in Philadelphia taller than the statue of William Penn on City Hall. This supposedly led to a sports drought where the four major Philadelphia sports teams (Phillies, Eagles, Flyers, Sixers) failed to win a championship. This, of course, ended when the Phillies won the 2008 World Series. Some say that this is because the builders of the Comcast Center, the new tallest building in Philly, put a tiny statue of William Penn on top, to break the curse. This may or may not have happened, but any curse is over for now.
The Sports Illustrated curse is when a team get featured on the front page of Sports Illustrated they always lose the next game. It has happened to many football teams including the Kansas State Wildcats.
