Yankees stop the potential curse
So earlier this week I reported that a Red Sox jersey was buried under the new Yankee stadium by a disgruntled Red Sox fan.
Well his plan to put a curse of the Yankees failed. The Yankees foiled the scheme by digging up the buried shirt.
After locating the shirt in a service corridor behind what will be a restaurant in the new Yankee Stadium, construction workers jackhammered through the remaining concrete Sunday and pulled it out.
The team learned that a Sox-rooting construction worker had buried a shirt in the stadium from a report in the New York Post on Friday, team officials said.
Yankees President Randy Levine said the team at first considered leaving the shirt.
“The first thought was, you know, it’s never a good thing to be buried in cement when you’re in New York,” Levine said. “But then we decided, ‘Why reward somebody who had really bad motives and was trying to do a really bad thing?”
The Yanks weren’t tryin to take any chances. They wanted to make sure that they got rid of that shirt. They aren’t trying to have to go through 87 years without a title or any such nonsense. They donated it to Boston area charity.
