Seeing Is Believing

pope benedict xvi.jpgPope Benedict XVI’s Good Friday address was what most of us expected it to be: warming, inviting, aggressive.  And since my esteemed secular colleague, Mr. Krause, already achieved his annual civic duty of offending the Catholic church, I will refrain from continuing such questioning threads… except to say: WHAT?!?!

Acknowledging the world’s escalating progressive temperature towards logic and science, the Pope warned the masses that Western society is currently collapsing into “a desert of godlessness”.

Godlessness? 

I think not.

Admittedly, I am not your typical religious type; yet I do have the propensity to ponder the existence of higher powers.  One need only examine the current state of the greatest game on earth to realize that indeed, something “other” is at work:

Kyle Farnsworth still has a job.

J.P. Ricciardi still has a job.

And Bartolo Colon is pitching today.

Yes, dear readers.  Today, Comiskey is my church, Colon is my vehicle and baseball is my savior.

Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

Peace,

Jeffy

Here’s hoping the bullpen doesn’t blow it again. Therefore meaning MacDougal needs to stay far, far, FAR away from the field!

Jeff, was it divine intervention that made it possible for Albert’s seven RBIs? Wow. Bless his heart.

“Comiskey is my church, Colon is my vehicle, and baseball is my savior,”. That may not be the case for me, but as a baseball fan… true-dat :)

Kyle Farnsworth not only has a job.. he struck out the side [as in 3 straight K's].. against the Yanks.. El Elefante is working his magic alright.
Hope you had a good time at the game.. =)

I am with you on that…all bow to the great and omnipotent force that is baseball! It’s really the only thing I am celebrating today…except for maybe gnawing on some chocolate bunnies :O)

Jane — AP owns the Astros. He is divine!
Elizabeth — It’s all relative… at least we can celebrate something!
V — I didn’t see it, so I don’t believe it… yet.
Jenn — And Peeps, too!
