Curse foiled again!

Today, in a corridor behind a soon-to-be restaurant in a future stadium in New York City, there was a battle of such mythic and historic proportion that Cecil B. DeMille must have turned to Charlton Heston and said, "I love you, Chuck, but the part calls for someone younger and more ethnic."

That's a picture of Frank Gramarossa, project executive for the new Yankee Stadium, holding up the Boston Red Sox jersey that construction worker Gino Castignoli buried in the concrete foundation of the stadium.

True baseball fans believe in curses.

(America Wants to Know is a Cubs fan, if you doubt our credentials on this issue.)

Mr. Castignoli's plot to put a curse on the New York Yankees by burying the jersey of their despised rival deep in the concrete under their new home field was foiled after the New York Post reported it on Friday.

Any normal person would have said there was nothing that could be done about it.

This is why normal people pay to see the New York Yankees, and not the other way around.

That's a picture of a construction worker jackhammering the foundation of the new Yankee Stadium.

That's a picture of Frank Gramarossa pulling the shredded Red Sox jersey from its mafia grave.

There will be no Red Sox curse on the new Yankee Stadium.

Don't mess with Zeus.
