Concrete curse

I guess Gino Castignoli has injected himself into Sox-Stinkins folklore and made himself the answer to what someday will be a very difficult trivia question. He had fun with the rivalry and he didn’t get create a dangerous situation.
A construction worker's bid to curse the New York Yankees by planting a Boston Red Sox jersey in their new stadium was foiled 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.
I doubt this would’ve had much of an impact on the Stinkins’ fortunes. Besides, I have a feeling Steinbrenner’s kids will do more to hurt that organization than an old jersey.

And anyway, I heard Castignoli planted 34 David Ortiz jerseys in the stadium concrete. Or did he? Better get out those jackhammers.
