"Cursed" Jersey is a lucky windfall for the Jimmy Fund

Just a quick follow-up concerning the unearthed Yank Curse David Ortiz Jersey - the Yanks did a real good thing by giving it to the Jimmy Fund to raise some much needed money for the pediatric cancer clinic. eBay is hosting the auction and is already over $30K within the first day.

I just hope that the winning bidder will take the tax write-off and give it to the Baseball Hall of Fame. I mean, just look at that picture and tell me it wouldn't look good in a shadow box up on the wall in Cooperstown.

On a somewhat related sidenote, how many people think that the supposed curse that was supposed to dog the Yanks in their new stadium instead is killing Ortiz at the plate right now? He's hitting .121 with only 1 HR, 4 RBIs and 10 total bases. Definitely neded him to do better than 1 for 5 with 1 RBI when the Sox bullpen decided to douse the Yankees' run-producing fire with gas.
