    Talk about some silly shit! In sports news last week, construction workers building the new Yankee Stadium revealed that another worker who is a big Red Sox fan hoped to put a “jinx” on the Red Sox Nation’s number one enemy by secretly burying a Red Sox jersey in the concrete foundation of the new stadium.

    The Yankees didn’t appear very concerned. Basically stating there is no truth to the rumor. In a statement released Friday, they called it a 10 day late April Fool’s joke.

    Saturday it appeared as if their tune had changed. After about five hours of drilling, they finally located the shirt under 2 feet of concrete. Sunday, they pulled the jackhammered No. 34 David Ortiz Red Sox jersey in shreds from the battered hole in the foundation.

    Two days ago it was a joke to the Yankee organization. Now they are destroying the concrete foundation of their new
    $ 1.3 Billion structure? There has even been talk with the district attorney’s office about possible criminal charges against Gino Castignoli, the worker who allegedly buried the jersey in cement.

    I guess with all the money the Steinbrenner family has and can throw around, a few days off schedule and a few more dollars to repair the foundation of their new home, what’s the harm. Right?

    I think the thing the Yankees need to be more concerned about is not a so-called “jinx” but the safety of their fans and members of all the visiting teams. I’m no structural engineer, but I do know I wouldn’t feel safe knowing some paranoid people went drilling, digging and jackhammering just for a small piece of fabric that would have no effect on the structural integrity of the new stadium.
