According to a ground-breaking piece of journalism in the New York Post, the new Yankee Stadium may be cursed. 

A devilish Boston fan working on a concrete crew at the $1.3 billion stadium covertly buried a Red Sox T-shirt under what will become the visiting team's locker room to jinx the Yanks, two construction workers told The Post yesterday.

"In August, a Red Sox T-shirt was poured in a slab in the visitor's clubhouse. It's the curse of the Yankees," one worker said. "Nobody knows about it. It's in the floors, it's buried." […]

"I don't want to be responsible for sinking the franchise," said a second worker, who witnessed the sabotage. "I respect the stadium." […]

Chris Wertz, co-owner of the Red Sox bar Professor Thom's in the East Village, laughed at the ingenuity of the worker. "I won't be surprised in the least bit to see that visiting locker room torn up and relaid right away," he said. "This what makes the game special for baseball fans. It's not a mean thing, but something they will take seriously."

GASP!  No!  Not a… a… t-shirt!  How can you expect the Yankees to win a championship when there's a t-shirt somewhere under the visitors' locker room?  Watch out, it's a cotton/poly blend!  AHHH THE HUMANITY!
