  • Yankees unearth buried Red Sox jersey from new stadium

    Apr 14

    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.
