Yankees Fan Plants Grass Seed in Fenway Park

A Yankees fan seeking revenge for the burial of David Ortiz’s jersey under the new Yankee Stadium may have planted his own “curse.” Ian Ferris, 30, brought a commemorative sack of grass seed from Yankee Stadium to the Phish concert last week at Fenway Park.

“I’m a lifelong Yankee fan and someone buried an Ortiz jersey in the cement at our stadium in the Bronx, so this was a little retribution,” said Ferris.

Ferris planted the Kentucky Blue Grass seed somewhere in foul territory between first base and the Red Sox dugout. Unfortunately for Mr. Ferris, the Red Sox already use Kentucky Blue Grass at Fenway.

“It’s all in good fun. It wasn’t meant to be malicious in any way. I just wanted to add fuel to the rivalry fire,” he said.

The Yankees roll into Fenway for a three-game series starting Tuesday night. If the Yankees sweep, there may be something to that grass seed…

  4. [...] Apparently this guy planted some Yankee grass seed at Fenway park at the Phish concert this past wee… Again, how many times can I say that the Steinbrenners are the best owners in baseball?!?!? Why let a bunch of weed smoking crack pots on the grass in the stadium where your team plays? Nothing good can come of it! Nothing! Not even the Pope himself was allowed to touch the grass at Yankee Stadium last year and we’re going to let a bunch of Phish fans on the grass? Not gonna happen. This is what happens when you run your team like a business. John Henry saw that he could make some extra cash and it got him one thing, cursed. Ian Ferris, a manager at a local Hooters in Vermont, came into town with a bag of Yankee grass seed, snuck it into the concert like someone right out of Ocean’s 13 and planted the grass on the infield of Fenway Park. The Curse Of Ian Ferris has been born and Boston will go into another championship slumber for 86 years. [...]

  9. Thanks to Ian and the NY Post the Green Monster has been redefined! Red Sox sod and Yankees Sod(TM) are both from NJ – but now the seeds of the Yankees will always live on as the new Green Monster of Fenway!

    Ian is just making the universe greener one piece of grass at a time.

    Ian is a hero!

  11. NY fans would buy sacks of dog crap if they had “Yankees” printed on the side. Oh no, you planted some grass that was the same type that they used at the new Yankees Stadium… I’m gonna capture a jar of air at Fenway and they release it at YS, then Derek Jeter will be breathing Fenway Air! MUAhahaha.
    What an idiot.
