Some mensa construction worker by the name of Gino Castignoli had a plan to forever own the Yanks for his beloved Sawks. I should mention this construction genius was working on the new Yankees stadium.
Ole Gino decided to drop a David Ortiz Red Sox jersey into the wet concrete two feet deep in a service corridor of a future restaurant site.
Funny, right? I thought it was, but I don’t live in New York or Boston. Seems the Yanks weren’t having any of it. Yankees President Randy Levine said,
“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?”
The New York Yankees decided they would have the contractor jackhammer for five hours to find and retrieve the offending jersey. And they did.
And they also are considering dropping a legal hammer on Gino. Yanks CEO Lon Trost said the Yankees had discussed possible criminal charges against Castignoli with the district attorney’s office. Do you think going to the cops to narc out an Italian American who buried something in wet concrete in New York is a good idea? Even for a “really bad thing”?
It seems to have ended well as the Yankees have surrendered the jersey to a charitable organization in Boston to auction off with the proceeds going to the charity.
No word on whether the Indian, Cop, Army guy, Biker, or Cowboy had anything to do with this dastardly deed.
