Thaaaa Yankees win
Construction workers at the new Yankee Stadium jackhammered for five hours to unearth a Red Sox jersey that had been buried in a gravel-filled pit by a Boston-loving hardhat, according to a report in the New York Post.That's baseball for you. In New Jersey, we wouldn't feel superstitious unless David Ortiz himself was in the gravel pit. Even so, when it was rumored Jimmy Hoffa was entombed beneath an end zone at Giant Stadium, we thought that was pretty cool & maybe even good luck.
The construction worker, Gino Castignoli, told the paper last week he buried a Red Sox slugger David Ortiz jersey at the site last summer while working at the stadium.
Demolishing the old Yankee Stadium might turn out to be the biggest jinx in baseball history. How many World Series have the Yanks won since Giuliani & Steinbrenner made the original deal in 2001? The Red Sox have won two.
