Yankee Fan Returns '13 Ring To Spinners Chief

Millitello (
This is a story that gives you some hope for eventual world peace. Last Thursday, New York restaurateur Luigi Millitello found something very interesting on the restroom sink of his bar—a 2013 Red Sox World Series Championship Ring. Being a Yankee fan, his first thought was, "What are the chances of this happening?". The owner of the ring is also Lowell Spinners owner Drew Weber—who counts the restaurant (Luke's Bar And Grill) as one of his favorite Gotham haunts. When he discovered the bauble missing from his digit, Weber, "...started having palpitations. Sweat was pouring off my forehead." Hoping against hope, Weber called Luke's and got the good news from Millitello that his ring was safe—not without some choice Yankee-Red Sox razzing, however. All is forgiven, and Weber has even arranged for Millitello to attend Derek Jeter's final regular season game—on September 28th at Fenway Park. Nice ending. Send these guys to the U.N.!
