You may remember the incredibly stupid story we had up on Friday about the Red Sox fan who worked at the new Yankee Stadium for a day with a concrete crew and stuck a David Ortiz Red Sox jersey into the concrete beneath the visiting dugout.
I mentioned how it was somewhat odd that he buried it close to the visitors dugout, rather than the Yankees dugout (which would seem to be the thing to do if you wanted to curse somebody), but whatever. Now, you'd think the Yankees wouldn't care about something as dumb as this, but you'd be wrong.
Two guys who worked with Gino Castignoli - the guy who buried the shirt - told a construction manager about where they thought the jersey was buried.
The construction crew then spent five hours jackhammering the site, creating a 2-foot- by-3-foot pit in the process. Luckily, they found the jersey, because they probably all would have fired if they hadn't. It was buried about 2-feet deep in the concrete.
And just to fully destroy Castignoli's name, the New York Post mentioned how he once pleaded guilty to involvement in a $40 million illegal gambling operation with ties to the Gambino crime family, according to the Brooklyn DA's Office.
Naturally, Hank Steinbrenner was much classier than the Post in his comments about Castignoli.
