A construction worker’s bid to curse the New York Yankees by planting a Boston Red Sox jersey in their new stadium was foiled Sunday when the home team removed the offending shirt from its burial spot.
After locating the shirt in a service corridor behind what will be a restaurant in the new Yankee Stadium, construction workers jackhammered through the concrete Sunday and pulled it out.
It took about five hours of drilling Saturday to locate the shirt under 2 feet of concrete, he said.
I don’t think they would have bothered if it were something else, like the body of Jimmy Hoffa. But the Red Sox jersey has got to go!
