Heat Fans -- Dropping VOODOO Curse on the Mavs

6/9/2011 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miami Heat fans are seeking some old-fashioned voodoo vengeance on the Dallas Mavericks, TMZ has learned -- buying up voodoo dolls by the HUNDREDS ... to curse the Mavs during the NBA finals.

They're selling out like hot cakes ... but the owner of El Viejo Lazaro Botanica -- which hocks all sorts of bizarre religious supplies, including voodoo stuff -- tells TMZ, he has no idea which Mavs are being targeted by the hexes.

If they're not buying voodoo dolls, we're told Miami fans are turning to herbal remedies -- buying what are called "Paraiso" herbs to use in a bath.

According to the owner, you put the herbs in a bath, get in, then visualize what you want to happen -- in this case, a Miami Heat victory.

Lucky for the Heat, they probably won't need the extra help.

Voodoo is so 1980's. What's the current "in" religion?

It's been said that there's a sucker born every minute. I guess in this case, they all live in Miami.

I wonder if this is offending the atheist Heat fans? Voodoo IS a religion, after all. Maybe the A(theist)& C(riminals) L(iberty) U(nion) should get involved.

Nah...they just hate Jesus....voodoo zombies are vogue, these days.

Go Mavs!!! Quench the Heat!!! Miami blows!!!

This story is made up. How do I know? Because there is no such thing as a "Miami Heat Fan" -- they are all just bandwagoners.

funny this is considered relevant 'news' AND it has not even been mentioned in Miami where it's supposed to be happening.

Yes, there are a lot of Haitians and Cubans who practice Voodoo in these parts, yes the "fans" come around in good times and yes we definitely have brain dead people but guess what? This story reeks of a little shop owner trying to get himself some press.

Just telling it like it is, I'm sure everyone else lives in a perfect city/state where not a bad word can be said about ANYTHING.

"Joe: you just called Haitians idiots...isnt that racist?"

No...because "Haitian" is NOT A RACE...it's a nationality. They aren't the same thing....understand? If not, you can look it up in a thing called a "dictionary". That's a book that has a lot of words in it, along with their meaning. It will help you get what's called a "vocabulary". That's when you not only know a bunch of words, but you actually know what they mena.
Cool, huh?

I guess those great Miami schools don't teach that kind of stuff, though? Wouldn't want to handicap the immigrants with English, would we?
