Red Sox Nation has once again lowered the bar for others to mock it more easily, as the new "Hot or Not.
In what I hope is the endgame of a ridiculous story, that dirty old shirt that was buried under the new Yankees' stadium <a href="http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news;_ylt=Aq8Q24GM0AUAwqBILQS2iLgRvLYF?slug=ap-yankees-cursefoiled&prov=ap&type=lgns">fetched</a> $175,100 on eBay.
