I Viewed The FOX Sports World Series Game 5 Feed On Canal 6 Nicaragua

2 Nov

It is part of State Owned Television in Nicaragua & they carried the FOX Sports Video Feed.
I viewed parts of the game on Ustream on my Mobile Smartphone. The T-Mobile Coverage in 4G LTE is quite good here in Queens. T-Mobile was the Prime Sponsor of The World Series on FOX.
And to think back to 1998, when OMNIPOINT, now a wholly owned subsidiary of T-Mobile, was a Prime Sponsor of The NY Mets on Television and at Shea Stadium, and MetroPCS as Radio Sponsor of NY Mets Games on WFAN, I have used T-Mobile for a good part of 17 Years.
Thanks T-Mobile, and Ustream for bringing me MLB Postseason in a way which I could never have imagined.

Lets Go Mets!

The NY Mets Actually Had The Worst Record Of The 5 NL Playoff Teams

2 Nov

But they are a young team and a possible winner over the Next Few Years, provided that Jeffy The Rocket Scientist doesn’t start acting like he is the General Manager.
At 90-72, the Team gave its Fans a pleasant surprise this year including an 11 Game Winning Streak to begin the Season.
The Team is young yet. Give them time. The Ship will Right Itself.(That Is IF, & I mean IF Jeffy Wilpon doesn’t get in The Way.

The KC Royals Waited 30 Years To their World Series Championship, hence, after the Experience of Last Year’s World Series, it gave them a tremendous leg up in this series. Hence, Quite Well Done on Monday, November 2nd, 2015, so Congratulations.
Let’s Go Mets!

All Saints Day Tridentine Latin Mass & A “Marathon”

2 Nov

As My Most Dear Friend says, to which I heartily concur, the Liturgical Muzak at the Missa Novus Ordo, is Treacly and “Does NOT Draw In.” And so, as I make my journey via the IND Queens Blvd 6th Avenue F Train, running as a Local, I am making my way to Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan on West 37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue, in order to avoid the Treacly Musical Creature called “Pukeasaurus Rex.” “Table Of Plenty” does not cut it, in English, nor Latin, as it is “Pure Schutte”, as in a former member of the St. Louis Jesuits, writers of Treacly Muzak, which could lead to rather lengthy queues at Parish Vomitaria, with varying waiting times.
After Mets 2nd Baseman Dan Murphy’s Imitation of Red Sox 1st Baseman Bill Buckner at Citi Field in Game 4 of the 2015 World Series, queues at the Citi Field Vomitariums were lengthy. Buckner at least had a major excuse, in that he was injured. Murphy realized that he is a Free Agent, and may have been careless. Cespides is an oversized Bobby Bonilla Type with little Mobility.
So hence I headed to Holy Innocents & heard Mass in Latin. The Epistle was from The Apocalypse According To St. John Apostle. The Gospel According to St. Matthew was The Beatitudes. Fr Leonard Villa, Pastor, offered the Mass.
As FOX Sports has a Super Day of Sports on the Schedule, with an NFL Game in London, UK at 9:30AM EST(The Clocks Went back an hour), at 1PM with the NY Football Giants & 4:15PM with Dallas, followed by Game 5 of the 2015 World Series between the NY Mets & KC Royals from Citi Field in Corona, Queens, beginning at 8PM Eastern, it will be a long haul for FOX Sports. As this is the 1st Sunday in November, ESPN is carrying the NYC Marathon at 10AM EST.

At 10:30AM EST, an Ecclesiastical Marathon occurred at Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan on West 37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue, as it was The Tridentine Latin Mass for All Saints Day, lasting from 10:30AM to 12Noon, The Angelus in English, followed by a Coffee Hour which stretched until 2:30PM, followed by The Rosary(In English), Vespers for All Saints Day(Latin), and Vespers For All Souls Day in Latin.
Yes, The Race was long, but I am glad to have completed it. And I am Tired.
Deo Gratias!

Missa Requiem Et Metropolitanus Novi Eboraci

31 Oct

I headed via IND E Train to 5th Avenue East 53rd Street to switch to the M Train to W34th Street 6th Avenue, so to go to a Rare Tridentine Missa Pro Defunctis, where the Priest, Deacon & Subdeacon are vested in Black Vestments.
This is a Requiem Mass(You Remember Requiem Masses), not a cheery celebration of a Man’s or Woman’s Life. For the Missa Novus Ordo is Too Humanistic.
Pro Defunctis means “For The Dead”, not “Pro Metropolitanus”(For The NY Mets, Who Defeated the KC Royals at Citi Field 9-3).
The Priest of The RC Archdiocese of New York, offered the Mass alone with Two Servers, both Males, as this is ALWAYS the case at the Tridentine Latin Mass. It was that Great Eastern Catholic Patriarch, St. John Chrysostom, Patriarch of Constantinople, who coined this Gem which applies here:
“Is It Tradition? Ask No More.”

For The Soul Of The Faithful Departed, whether a Member of “Ecclesia Triumphante”(In Paradisium), or “Ecclesia Purgatorio”(The Church Suffering), The Prayer of One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic, is of Fervent Supplication with the Chanting of Litanies, between The Epistle & Gospel. Those Living(Ecclesia Militante or Church Militant), are in Prayer & awed by This Litany. There are NO Guitarists singing a Responsorial Psalm, nor that Novus Ordo “Favorite”, “On Eagles Wings.”

At the end of The Last Gospel(The Incarnation), Father spoke of Our Relationship with God, coming via The Sacraments. He spoke in terms of Sunday’s NYC Marathon.
The Winners Finish The Race, and then they go to the Sidelines to root for the others to finish the race.
The Winners ARE “The Church Triumphant.”
We are NOT in This ALONE. It is NOT merely “Christ Is My Personal Savior”. We must Support One Another to The Ultimate Prize.

Metropolitanus Novi Eboraci Members did that Last Night. David Wright & Curtis Granderson built up and gave this support to The Team. And so did Fanaticae Metropolitanus build up their team, last night.

Deo Gratias!

He Directs The Big Game & Now He’s Seriously Ill

27 Oct

Unlike much of Red Sox Nation, I grew up hating the NY Yankees like you do, but I grew up in Brooklyn.
And there was a great place to hate the Yankees, namely WOR TV Channel 9, then NOT the Property of The FOX Broadcasting Company.
And in 1970, a new Television Director painted the word picture on Channel 9. His name is Bill Webb. I was in my Middle Teens then.
People who Bill Webb has directed on Baseball Telecasts since 1970:
The List is Extensive;
Lindsey Nelson, Bob Murphy, Ralph Kiner, Steve Albert, Steve Zabriskie, Gary Thorne, Tony Kubek, Dwayne Staats, Curt Gowdy, Tim McCarver(On WOR, WWOR, Sportschannel NY and FOX), Joe Buck, Kenny Albert, Chris Myers, Erin Andrews, Gary Cohen, Howie Rose, Keith Hernandez, Ron Darling, Jerry Remy, Fran Healy, to name a few.

And Webby will be MISSED. He has Stage 3 Cancer.

Keep him in your Prayers, Mets Fans & all of MLB, as he has directed The World Series & The All Star Game. He will be MISSED.

“Back At The Wall”

24 Oct

Watching FOX Sports FS 1 Telecast of Toronto Kansas City, via carriage on SPN(Canada), over Ustream.tv “On The Mobile”, to quote Peter Mansbridge. And calling the Plays is Joe Buck.

“He’d Like to have that back” & “Back at The Wall” are Classic Joe Buck calls in Baseball. The ONLY Thing missing is Tim Mc Carver. They played off each other well.

Kansas City 4 Toronto 3 with The Royals Facing The Mets in the 1st Ever All Expansion Team World Series, eh.

M, Eh!
