Those deluded flat-Earthers finally had to give up that silly superstition in October 2004 when the Red Sox pulled off the greatest comeback in baseball history -- which was concurrent with the Yankees committing the biggest and most embarrassing choke in baseball history.
The Post reports that last August, "Gino" cursed the Yankees for 30 years when he
placed a carefully folded jersey bearing the name and uniform number of David Ortiz ... into the concrete mix being laid along the third base line.But Yankees fans should not worry.
"The reason why is George Steinbrenner told Cashman to get Ortiz and Cashman told him, we don't need him, We have Giambi and Nick Johnson," Gino boasted, referring to a chance the Yanks had to sign Ortiz in 2003. ...
[H]e documented the entire sabotage on his cellphone camera.
[J]ust in case the buried jersey does indeed bring a curse, Bonnie Thompson, a 37-year-old witch from Hicksville, LI, cast a spell to sweep away the jinx.Very good. Aren't you about 3½ years too late with that spell, lady?
"I cast out all negative energies from the Red Sox jinx. Their buried T-shirt has no effect here," the Wiccan priestess said while wearing an all-black dress and Yankees cap. "All negative thought-form be gone."
She then lay a Red Sox jersey on the ground and beat it with a broom.
