Red SoxCould the Yankees become cursed? A Red Sox fan working on the new Yankee Stadium has reportedly buried a tee-shirt in the concrete slab of the visiting team’s locker room in an unknown location. As reported by the NY Post:

"In August, a Red Sox T-shirt was poured in a slab in the visitor's clubhouse. It's the curse of the Yankees," one worker said. "Nobody knows about it. It's in the floors, it's buried."

The workers say they now fear that they unwittingly helped hex their beloved Bronx Bombers.

"I don't want to be responsible for sinking the franchise," said a second worker, who witnessed the sabotage. "I respect the stadium."

As superstitions go, this is, after all, baseball we’re talking about. The Curse of the Bambino for the Red Sox, and the “Billy Goat” curse for the Cubs are examples of the rich folklore surrounding baseball. How do Red Sox fans view the notion of a curse? Ask Peter Nash, author of "Boston's Royal Rooters."

"I think there is a curse in effect already. Maybe the Red Sox T-shirt is like the icing on the cake, a nice little F-you from Boston."
