It looks like being an Equal Opportunity Employer means you can't ask prospective construction workers which baseball team holds their heart and loyalty.
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.
