Reason #1 324128901329085730 Red Sox Fans Make Me Furious, and Best. Quote. Ever. Candidate!
Sunday, April 13, 2008
It looks like being an Equal Opportunity Employer means you can't ask prospective construction workers which baseball team holds their heart and loyalty.

Blast.

I'm sure you've heard by now about all the "curse attempt" hoopla that's been going on at the Yankee Stadium construction site. The short version, in case you've missed it: One of the construction workers came forward ratting out a couple of his coworkers, saying that a few hooligans had buried a Big Papi jersey in the concrete in hopes of cursing the Yanks; the Yankees responded by proclaiming the news as untrue, but then ended up believing the tattle-tale employees after all once they pinpointed the exact location it was entombed in concrete. The jersey was subsequently unearthed today.

A couple thoughts on this idiocy:

a) Anyone that honestly believes in curses should be banned from baseball fandome forever, on account of extreme stupidity.

b) Why a Papi jersey? Is that really the best they could come up with?

c) These dudes would be wise to watch their backs on the job from now on. Or seek new jobs... Cleaning the Green Monster perhaps?

I've saved the best part for last: Hal Steinbrother's reaction!
I hope his co-workers kick the shit out of him

I'm pretty sure this is the first time Hank has allowed his brother to speak publicly, and I salute him.

Amen.

    Yeah, and if one of Gino Castignoli's co-workers does assault him for burying the jersey, Steinbrenner could find himself in some serious legal trouble.

    Hank and Hal: true horse's asses.

    It was actually a non-hooded sweatshirt and I know the two guys who did it.

    The schmuck was on the job for A DAY and that's what he decides to do with his time, instead of, I don't know, doing his job for which he's being well paid, by the Steinbrenners no less? Just do your job, idiot.

    Question to 'omnipotent': How exactly would Hal be in some sort of legal trouble? He didn't say "I'm going to kick the shit out of him" or "I'll pay someone...". He said "I HOPE...".

    If I say "I HOPE David Ortiz's fat pumpkin head gets stuck in his helmet and it explodes" and then it happens, am I in some legal trouble?

    I'd love for you to clarify that, since you're so 'omnipotent'...

    YC, I think that was a joke it may have been burried in yankee stadium but it was in the visitor's clubhouse. Wouldn't that curse the visitors? It was a david ortiz jersey, maybe it cursed him or maybe he stinks so bad even the Red Sox fan didn't want it and burried it from shame. What's he batting now .050?

    I'm thinking publicity stunt myself. I'm no engineer but I have to think that the buried jersey/sweatshirt(hooded or non-hooded) might affect the integrity of the concrete.

    Just a thought - you say anyone believing in curses should be banned, and i agree. But why would the Yankees spend 5+ hours and 50,000 bucks to get rid of a jersey if they didn't believe?

    it all looks pretty stupid from both sides. At first I thought it was a funny story. Now I just think it's lame for both of 'em.

    Just to let everyone know, the sweatshirt is still buried in the stadium. The jersey they "pulled out" was not the item that was buried. First of it would be fully stiff since the concrete would have seeped into the fibers.(NO STARCH I SAID!) The actual item was buried in the foundation and would be a huge wast of money to remove, and also would cause no damage to the concrete considering that there is over 200 layers of strong chicken wire in there. If you think about it I wonder how much other crap is in there that we don't know about. As long as the stadium was not built on ancient burial grounds and someone does not chant from the book or lost souls, there should be no curse. But I sure some fans will blame loses on the "sweatshirt"
