What's dumber?

A) The Bosox fan construction worker planting a Red Sox (D. Ortiz) jersey in the new Yankee Stadium concrete...

or

B) The Yankee organization threatening to sue the construction worker involved.

For me, without any doubt or question, it is most certainly (B).

That is all.

I don't see anything wrong with it. Hoffa could probably use a fresh shirt.

Is there any actual evidence other than the guy saying he did it? What if he changes his story and says he just made the whole thing up? They probably are not going to get the jackhammers out to search for a buried jersey.

Ummm... that's the point. They already did, and they found the jersey. The proverbial smoking gun.

Anything that pisses off Yankee fans can't be all bad.

The dumbest part is that they spent the time to dig up the jersey. What did they do, torture the guy to find where he put it? I saw them dig it up on TV, they had to know where it was somehow.

The next thing will be revenge, now something else will get buried, or hidden.

I find professional sports in general to be dumb, but if you believe they are not, then this whole episode is just part of the fun of the game, and a great series of marketing stunts to create buzz and attract publicity and fans.
