The cursor becomes the cursee

David Ortiz hit two singles last night, which usually wouldn't be news. But the guy is hitting just .104 on the season and is in the midst of the longest slump of his career. You might blame his balky knee, or that long flight to Japan, maybe.

But I blame Gino Castignoli, the New York construction worker (and Red Sox fan) who buried an Ortiz jersey in the new Yankees stadium being built right now in the Bronx. Gino said he did it to forever curse the new ballpark, but I worry that it boomeranged on him.

Fortunately for everybody, the Yankees spent a couple hours jackhammering the concrete and the new stadium and unearthed the offending jersey.

Don't you wish we could just bury all the curses?
