The 20th Century Ended On January 14th, 2015

16 Jan

The Last Ever 20th Century Born Knights of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship Contestant, finished shooting at 9:04PM Eastern Time on Wednesday, January 14th, 2015(10:34PM in Newfoundland), at the 23rd Annual Msgr Sherman Council Knights of Columbus #5103 Competition at PS 101Q in Forest Hills Gardens in Queens, NY.
It was an Interesting 60th Birthday for me. In the Byzantine Rite of the Catholic Church, this day on the Julian Calendar is January 1st, known as New Years Day. The Byzantine Rite recognizes two feasts, namely Feast Of The Circumcision Of The Child Jesus and the Feast Of St. Basil The Great on this Day and Date. I began the day with Mass at 8:00AM at Our Lady Queen Of Martyrs in Forest Hills, Queens, NY. There was no Feast on January 14th, on the Ordinary Form Calendar in the Roman Rite.
There is an Annual Glitch in the competition and Sacred Heart Recreation in East Glendale, Queens, adjacent to Our Lady Of Mercy in Forest Hills, Queens, always sends more contestants than everyone else does.

Does anyone in East Glendale know how to read English?

But the competition was done from 7:08PM(8:38 PM in Newfoundland) until 9:04 PM EST(10:34PM in Newfoundland), taking 1 Hour, 56 Minutes to do. The Last Contestant was from Sacred Heart and he has the Distinction of being the Last Ever Competitor who was born in the 20th Century, being born in 2000.

Hence the title of this blog post, because the competition will, beginning in January of 2016, have all contestants born in the 21st Century. It has been 23 Years since the 1st Competition at Christ The King HS in Middle Village in Queens.

The New Era begins in January, 2016.


M, Eh!
