Schadenfreude 76 (A Continuing Series)

New York Post:
Hex still marks the spot at the new Yankee Stadium.

It has been more than a year since the team extricated a Red Sox jersey maliciously entombed in the new stadium's concrete by a Boston-loving hardhat -- yet the hole remains unfilled, and officials have no clue what to do with it, The Post has learned.

The Yankees were quick to shell out $50,000 to remove the David Ortiz shirt when word of its burial surfaced in April 2008 -- yet all they have done since then is surround the now-empty 2-by-4-foot gap with railing and a piece of Plexiglas.

The team refused to discuss plans for the hole ...

"I think maybe the curse is lingering," said Leigh Ann Johnson, 22 ...

Simon Marques, 20, a student, said it's "sketchy" they haven't filled it -- "because now there's residue from the Ortiz jersey. There's lingering bad karma." ...
Post:
A-Rod can't even go to a sex club without making a fool of himself.

The major-league slugger looked like a rank amateur when he made a supposedly clandestine visit to a Dallas sex club in 2004 -- but showed up wearing a Yankee hat that screamed, "Look at me!" ...

[In her upcoming book "A-Rod", Selena] Roberts highlighted one Yankee player's assessment of [A-Rod's] infatuation [with Madonna]:

"Obsessed, pretty much. It was like, 'OK, Alex, you're with Madonna. And I'd give you a big high-five for that -- 15 years ago.' Hey, she looks great, but she's 50. It's like sleeping with your mother."

Roberts writes of a staffer on A-Rod's payroll who was in charge, each morning, of delivering The Post to Rodriguez on a breakfast tray:

"One day, the employee charged with that task had doodled horns on a photo of Madonna," Roberts wrote. "Alex fired him."

I would say that this guy eventually would be a suicide risk, but then I remember that he's too narcissistic to do such a thing. He'd probably get that wrong too, poor sorry sack of dumb asshole.

Not exactly. (Incest?)

But a grown man thinking he's winning some kind of contest for having sex with a celebrity - especially when the man himself is also famous - is pathetic.
