洋基球場挖出紅襪球衣

  

之前有篇新聞。http://tw.news.yahoo.com/article/url/d/a/080412/17/x5cy.html

紐約洋基新球場即將在明年正式啟用,不過現在竟然有流言傳出,有人在新球場的地底下埋了一件波士頓紅襪隊的球衣,目的是詛咒洋基隊輸球。

即將在明年4月亮相的洋基新球場,就矗立在老球場旁邊,整個外觀已經相當有型,吸引不少球迷注意,不過現在竟然有八卦傳出,洋基新球場被人下了詛咒,兩名建築工人向紐約郵報爆料表示,有一名水泥工在洋基新球場埋了一件波士頓紅襪隊的T恤,地點就在客隊休息室的地底下,據說這將為洋基隊帶來厄運。

斥資8億美元打造的洋基新球場,可容納5萬1千名的觀眾,豪華包廂也由原來的18個增加到50個,2006年動工當時,前紐約州州長怕塔基還公開表示,雖然球場變了,不過洋基隊打敗世仇紅襪隊的決心,絕對不會改變,帕塔基說:「雖然我們即將有新球場,有些事是不會變的,那就是洋基永遠會打敗波士頓紅襪隊!」

只不過距離新球場開幕只剩下一年的時間,八卦流言就繪聲繪影,洋基隊真的被詛咒嗎?答案留給時間來決定。

本來我以為這件事只是網路八卦,或者是紅襪跟洋基球迷互相放話而已,目的是為了炒熱世仇球迷的對抗情緒,沒想到,居然是真的。

BOSTON — Hours before the Yankees and Red Sox prepared to face off again at Fenway Park on Sunday, the rivalry was alive and well in the Bronx, where jackhammers rocked a concrete corridor at the future Yankee Stadium site in search of a prankster’s hidden David Ortiz jersey. LsqX9AB6

For those who find such superstition credible and feared a Yankees curse, fear not. The Bombers yanked the Red Sox jersey out of the new ballpark’s structure in a photo opportunity ceremony on Sunday afternoon, with construction workers removing the illicit article.

Yankees team president Randy Levine and chief operating officer Lonn Trost were present on Sunday at the site, as workers removed the jersey from two feet of concrete in a service corridor. The jersey, plucked from a two-by-three foot hole, was a home white Red Sox article bearing designated hitter Ortiz’s name and number.

The New York Post reported that the culprit was Gino Castignoli, a 46-year-old Bronx resident and Red Sox fan. Castignoli told the newspaper that he buried the jersey at the construction site last summer while working at the stadium.

The Yankees originally denied the story after their records indicated that the jersey could not have been buried near the Yankees’ future clubhouse, as an original report on Friday indicated. Two workers told a construction manager that they remembered Castignoli, and they led the supervisor to a service corridor near the site of the planned Legends Club restaurant — behind home plate and toward the third-base side.

According to the newspaper, workers dug for five hours on Saturday with jackhammers, finding the jersey at 3:25 p.m. ET and notifying Yankees officials.

The Yankees plan to donate the jersey to charity, and they may pursue a lawsuit against the construction worker, according to The Associated Press.

Perhaps Castignoli selected the wrong Red Sox star to encapsulate at the Yankee Stadium site. Ortiz went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Boston’s 4-3 victory over New York on Saturday, lowering his batting average to a dismal .070 after 12 games.

這篇新聞大意是說,洋基隊在新球場挖出了一件波士頓紅襪主場樣式的球衣,上面有著老爹歐提茲的姓名跟編號,這是一個四十六歲的紅襪球迷幹的事,他是趁去年夏天在洋基新球場工作的時候埋的。洋基隊禮拜六下午在高層的監督下花了五小時,挖開兩英呎深的水泥才把衣服找出來,並計劃對這位紅襪球迷提出告訴。

我的感覺是蠻好笑的,根據歷史悠久的中華民族的詛咒文化,像這樣把有名有編號的球衣埋在洋基球場底下,不就象徵著讓老爹被洋基壓的死死的嗎?這位球迷真可說是熱情有餘,專業不足,需要好好補強專業知識才對。果不其然,老爹歐提茲今年球季開季至今表現陷入嚴重低潮,目前打擊率不到一成(.070),在前天對上王建民的比賽中不但站著不動被三振,還打出全場唯一的雙殺打,近況真是爛到不行。現在這件球衣在洋基紅襪重見天日,是不是代表著紅襪要大爆發了呢?一小時後的基襪第三戰,看松阪大輔對決休斯就知道了。
