http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/...d_from_me.htmlThe fiancee of a crane operator killed in last week's tragic collapse on Wednesday rejected an offer of help from Mets star Ryan Church because her future hubby was a Yankee fan.
A day after burying Donald Leo, Janine Belcastro said she couldn't accept the offer from the right fielder and his wife.
"Don was a die-hard Yankee fan," Belcastro said in a statement. "It would not respect his memory if he accepted this."
The grieving Belcastro added that she "greatly appreciated" the offer.
The money was to come from Church's participation in a Mets' fund-raiser for a variety of causes. A spokesman said Church will choose another charity.
Are you kidding me? Most dumb **** I've ever read.
Yeah thats strange but would you accept help from the Pats ? (probably)
My cousin went to grammar school with that girl.
I dont get it, is Ryan Church's money different than Bobby Abreu's?
It kind of reminds me of that part in Beer League when Ralph Machios wife tells him shes gonna replace the Derek Jeter action figure on the top of his bday cake with one of the puerto ricans from the mets.
Bobby isn't doing that bad this year.
Strange, but I'm going to cut her a little slack considering her fiancee just died. You're not always right in the head after a tragedy like that. Tough to call someone "stupid" in that situation, unless you're really that much of a hater.

Sheesh even Yankee fans can do no wrong.
