Update on the shirt curse

a.k.a. “how to waste money & time on something completely insignificant”

There’s an update since I posted about the story of the new Yankees Stadium construction worker that buried a Bo-Sox jersey in cement. It looks like they wasted 5 hours of drilling to find and remove the jersey.

From ESPN:

“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?”

Oh please.  Could you hear the fiddle playing in the background during that comment? Not being a Yankee fan (I loathe the Evil Empire), maybe I don’t have a full appreciation of this, but this is far from “the act that was a very, very bad act”.  I said on Friday that I hoped this was true, now I wish it was false. It would have been hilarious to spend all that time jack-hammering your new stadium, only to find nothing.
