My dog ate the World Series ball

Everyone remembers the 2004 World Series ball controversy involving the Boston Red Sox and Doug Mientkiewicz.

Well, the 2007 World Series ball is also in the news, this time involving closer Jonathan Papelbon.

From ESPN.com:

"My dog ate it," Papelbon told the newspaper. "He plays with baseballs like they are his toys. His name is Boss. He jumped up one day on the counter and snatched it. He likes rawhide. He tore that thing to pieces.

"I'll keep what's left of it," he told the paper.

That's a shame. Hopefully this releases whatever hex has been on the Yankees since 2000. It helps that the dog's name is "Boss."
