Viewers of MSNBC's Countdown are aware of host Keith Olbermann's scoop last night that a second Red Sox item is apparently buried somewhere beneath the concrete at the new Yankee Stadium. The same construction worker who buried a David Ortiz jersey in cement at the new stadium (which was dug up on April 13) has told friends he also buried a scorecard there from the 2004 American League Championship Series.
"And he isn't telling anybody where," Olbermann said of Gino Castignoli's alleged additional attempt to jinx the Yankees. "That could pose a problem. The new park is pretty big."
If any of this reminds you of the Seinfeld episode in which Jerry's girlfriend says something in his apartment has been in the toilet, but won't say what, then go to the head of the class.
Olbermann said he couldn't reveal the source of his information beyond it being "a friend of the aforementioned cement mason." He told Newsday that he has been getting tips on the story for the past week, but didn't have a second source until yesterday. "He's shooting his bazoo off," Olbermann said.
So, when will demolition begin?
