A man who worked in the kitchen at Citi Field got axed after he took ten days off work because of heart problems. He’d been the executive sous chef at the stadium since 2008, and when he began experiencing chest pain and shortness of breath last year, his boss reduced his responsibilities and eventually fired him. The poor guy is now suing Citi Field’s food contractor, the Aramark catering company. In solidarity, we suggest you smuggle in your own peanuts and Cracker Jack next time you go to a Mets game. [NYP]
