What’s the story behind this?

Oh really… wait, let me put me glasses on… ah yes, I read that already. Thank you, Cool As Ice Cream.

Now the real insiders info please.

For example, what is \"The rivalry between the Red Sox and the New York Yankees is one of the longest and the most dramatic in professional sports.\" all about?

The Red Sox and Yankees have a historic rivalry, lasting most of the 20th century. Very deep-seeded and long lasting. So, over time, fans have become OBSESSED with supporting both teams vehemently.

I think there was some stupid curse associated w/ Babe Ruth (who played for the Yankees). I’m too lazy to look this up.

The Red Sox are also the only team to ever come back in a World Series from 3-0 deficit, only to win 4 in a row and steal the Series. And they did this against the all mighty Yankees. This alone is an historical accomplishment, not to be repeated any time soon, if ever.

So, there’s lots of bad blood.

But this construction worker burying the jersey in a new Yankee stadium is another \"curse\". To me? It’s fucking retarded and I cannot believe ANYONE would buy that piece of crap. However, we’re not caught up in the baseball collectors, we are more interested in a particular band that rhymes w/

Duh Crashing Dumplins

Very true. The Yankees-Red Sox curse is definitely one of the more intriguing topics in baseball. Being from the NY/NJ area and having many family members be die-hard Yankees fans.. I know :)

At least the jersey is raising money for a good cause to help the fight against cancer. I salute them for doing something positive like that.

What Pumpkins item would be that expensive? :wink:

I thinks it’s more fun to organize a secret Smashing Pumpkins concert in US or EU for 150 SPfreaks members max, and fly all of us in for 4 days of "Pumpkins’ Rock & Acoustic Party". That would be a good cause also for that amount of money, right? :lol:

(Keep on dreaming Arthur… :roll: )

Before you raise the money through manillascissor’s charity scam, I think you need to find 150 SPfreak members. I’m not sure there are even 20 active members. :) :lol:

Although it could be a really small gig. :P

yeah, if you limit it to, say, 90000 (85000 cheaper) you could fly the active members out and still have enough to convince BC/JC to do it :lol:

My newest suggestion would be: inhouse Smashing Pumpkins concert at my place for everybody with 25 posts or more here on the boards. Free flights and free food, drinks and lodging included.

My cunning plan for gettin’ the money: we call it a \"3 day Rock Campus\" and write letters to our governments and Universities everywhere to sponsor it for 2500 people (can we help it that less then 25 only show up? Guess not huh? :wink: ). We will then put Post-It notes with the sponsors’ names on the fridge in the kitchen. Duty done. And 3 days fun will be there! 8)
