Apparently, Hank Steinbrenner (pictured) sent a team of workers into the new Yankee Stadium to jackhammer on the third base side yesterday and they found the Red Sox jersey that a Red Sox fan, Gino Castignoli, who worked on the place, had left buried in concrete. (Note to Gino: why did you come clean about it one year before the new stadium opened? Wouldn't have been better to have waited one day before it opened? Just a thought.)
The long, national nightmare is over. I guess. Read it here.
Hankenstein continues to be a horse's ass. And his paranoia is simply great high comedy. First he denies the jersey was left there. Then he says it was no big deal. Now he sends in a team to have it removed. And his brother Hal is encouraging the co-workers of the Red Sox fan who left the jersey to "kick the s**t out of him." Simply hilarious stuff. (Seriously, if some co-worker does go after Castignoli and assaults him, Mr. Hankee's brother could find himself in some legal hot water.)
So much for his not talking about the Red Sox anymore this year.
