Yankees Suck (at Punctuation)

The Yankees played their final game at Yankee Stadium last weekend. I went to see the Mets at Shea a bunch of times, but I never went to the House that Ruth built, mainly because I didn't want to give money to the Yankees. And I was afraid of getting beaten up for wearing a Red Sox hat. Fortunately, a friend of a friend named Allison was there to capture the momentous occasion -- and a triple apostrophe catastrophe.

It's a little hard to tell for sure since the sign is somewhat transparent, but it appears to say "close's it's door's." Also, the comma should be a period, and what's the deal with the ellipses?

Thanks, Allison! Out of gratitude, I will refrain from gloating that the Red Sox are in the playoffs and the Yanks aren't.

The gentlemen who made this sign has a learning disorder and he tried his best to write it correctly. I know this because he is a very close friend of mine. How does THAT make you feel? Still want to make absurd comments about home made signs? Clown, get a real job.
