In the news...
Turns out I was right about the Boston shirt debacle. Not only was there a Red Sox jersey buried beneath the new Yankee Stadium, but Hank Steinbrenner was actually crazy enough to go in and get it. What happened to the “mighty” Yankees? Is the New York psyche really so fragile nowadays?
Now that they have the cursed jersey, the Yankees are considering pressing charges against Gino Castignoli, the construction worker that left it there. Of course, I have no idea what those charges could possibly be. There couldn’t possibly be a “no-jersey-burying” law on the books.
Steinbrenner also suggested that other workers “kick the crap” out of Castignoli. Classy move, Hank. It’s good to know you’re carrying on in the rational and good-natured spirit that the Steinbrenner name is known for.
A trial would be fun to see, though, and it would certainly add a new element to what is already the best rivalry in sports. I can see it now, fans of both factions lined up outside the courthouse. There would be hundreds of rabid fans decked out in team gear, and screaming the baseball-related obscenities you can normally only hear when you watch these two teams face-off in person.
Unfortunately, the trial would take place in New York, where the Yankees and their management hold sway. (Any judge looking for some season tickets?) Now that I think about it, I wonder what kind of Gestapo tactics the Yankee brass used to pinpoint that buried shirt the way that they did.
I guess the old adage still holds true... The Yankees always get what they want.
