Revisiting the 2009 rumor there are Phillies jerseys buried inside Citi Field

Scully, look at this.

What is it Mulder?

Remember when Citi Field opened there was a rumor that there was at least one, if not more, Phillies jerseys buried inside the construction?

Yes, I sort of remember that.  Didn’t a bunch of blogs and TV stations get an email?

Yeah Scully, here it is for those who don’t remember.

I work for Hunt Construction. I was a foreman at Citi Field. There are 3 Phillies Jerseys buried in the ball park. As a lifelong Phillies fan, I felt it was my duty to jinx the Mets. I’m not telling you my real name for obvious reasons.  The jerseys are:
1. Under the Fanwalk bricks.
2. Jackie Robinson Rotunda in the vicinity of the Ticket Office window.
3.  Near the vicinity of the ’47 Shop near right field



Well, Scully I was going to reopen the case..but look here..why is there almost nothing on the internet about it?  Do a quick Google search yourself Scully….

…that is strange Mulder.

I looked a little deeper Scully, here’s an article from 2009 that Google doesn’t seem to have indexed that walks you through the initial conspiracy.

So what is the conspiracy Mulder?  Do YOU think there’s a Phillies jersey buried inside Citi Field?  Or is Google just part of the coverup, and why?

I don’t know Scully – but I do find it odd that this doesn’t show up in search other than this article from Complex Media about the 50 Biggest Fails in Mets History which is going to make for some fantastic blog filler some day.  The truth is out there Scully, we just have to figure out who is trying to make the story of the Phillies jersey disappear and why?

Do you think it’s the smoking man Mulder?

I think it might be A smoking man Scully.

Mulder this is getting ridiculous now.

I know Scully but you try filling two days of blog with no news when you aren’t feeling well.

While I continue to function at about 20% brain capacity as I fight off The Reyes Virus, here’s something for you to read.  An entire article about the Pastrami at Citi Field.

Hey, what do you want, another article about how the bullpen could be good for TDK?  I have floated the 8th inning idea on twitter for three years.

All together, Citi Field employs six executive chefs and anywhere from 250 to 450 cooks, chef supervisors and other kitchen staffers, depending on the size of the stadium crowds.
