The NY Yankees, As Of Now, SUCK!

12 Apr

You may have heard that chant of “Yankees Suck” , during their World Series & Playoff Run. Frankly, I think that The Postseason Run is over for a few years(Called Eternity in Yankees Land). It doesn’t really take anything to be a Yankees Fan, except for the Ability as a Braggart, with such Athletic Skills as jumping on a Bandwagon, as well as long memories on every record both real and imagined.
But, now they have lost two series at home. Derek Jeter & Mariano Rivera are retired. Paul O’Neill is In the YES Booth.  Bernie Williams is busy making Fine Latin Music. Jason Giambi retired out of an Indians Uniform. A-Rod is 40 this year. Mark Texiera will not be sending too many “Tex Messages.” Funny but the Red Sox Series is not sold out.
For the NY Yankees failed to make Postseason in 2013 & 2014. Prior to that, there was no appearance in Postseason in 2008, the last season of Yankee Stadium II.
Many People said Joe Torre was a Genius. Actually, he was Nothing without Don Zimmer(Requiscant In Pace). Willie Randolph was Torre’s Bench Coach when the Yankees led 3 Games to None over the Red Sox, as the great Yankees Collapse occurred when Dave Roberts stole 2nd Base & the Yankees Bullpen went to pieces including The Great Mariano Rivera. Willie did go onto be a Fine Manager of The Mets, who used to watch Mets Games from Shea Stadium’s Upper Level when Willie was a child.
Zimmer,,you see, got into a disagreement with George Steinbrenner after the 2003 World Series. I am surprised that George didn’t Replace Zimmer with George Costanza. Torre managed the Yankees until 2007.

The Last Member of the 1996 World Championship Yankees is Joe Girardi, named Manager in 2008. That 1st Season was the Farewell to Yankee Stadium II. After 13 Seasons of making Postseason, there was no Postseason for the NY Yankees. It was a Sign that Postseason would become harder & harder to attain. Torre would attain this goal for 12 Seasons including 6 World Series Appearances, winning 4 & Losing Two. The 2004 ALCS would be an Embarassment of Monumental Proportions because of the Red Sox Comeback from being down 0-3.

2013, 2014 is no Yankees Postseason. It looks to be Ditto for 2015.

To paraphrase John Sterling:
“Yankees Lose! Thahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Yankees SUCK!”

“Elton John & Timothy Cardinal Dolan May Like It But I Don’t”

27 Mar

This most recent St. Patrick’s Day Parade on 5th Avenue was, to the Delight of the Secularistic Media Minions, Sir Elton John, Ellen De Generes, Rosie O’Donnell, Neil Patrick Harris & Nathan Lane, as well as Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan, a Day in which avowed Homosexuals marched behind a banner to celebrate Intrinsic acts of unnatural sexual behavior.

Timothy Cardinal Dolan was the “Star” of this show. Ed Sullivan he’s NOT.

Those other stars, In the Future, may appear.

Peptic Bismuth Anyone?

He Won’t Be Going “Yard” Too Often

6 Mar

He doesn’t have his “Juice”, & I don’t mean Orange Pineapple either.

I am talking about one Alexander Emmanuel Rodriguez, A. K. A. “A-Rod”, amongst other nicknames, many of which are not printable.

He took over the front and back of the NY Post. The Headline on the front is “A-Rod Singles#”, with asterisk and wisecrack that this single would have been a Homer, if Alex was still on “The Juice”, code for Steroids.

He is not going anywhere. He will just be an expensive singles hitter.

Crossing That Strait To Go “East”

22 Feb

I will be headed across a Strait via the “Iron Horse”, by traveling Westward to head to the East.
In short, the 4:00PM 1st Sunday Of Lent Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom is where I am headed, and that is In the East Village of Manhattan, to St. George Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. The Divine Liturgy is the same thing as the Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass.
I am Roman Rite Catholic, but I often seek within One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, a Glorious Liturgy not filled with such distraction as Manufactured Modern Liturgical “Muzak”, nor Novelties such as who gets to present the Bread and Wine to the Priest at the Offertory, nor the Reception of Holy Communion A Mano. To me, singing most of that Muzak doesn’t constitute an Actual Participation in the Mass.
So here where Heaven and Earth are joined in the Divine Liturgy, I shall go. It is here where The Instruction Of Christ to St. Peter to “Feed My Sheep” is done in both Word & Sacrament, where one is Fed the Precious Body & Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, via Holy Communion Spoon.
One cries out to God for the Remission and Expiation of Sins at the Divine Liturgy, with “Lord Have Mercy” chanted multiple Times.

Ora Pro Nobis!

I Watched Michael Voris’ “Brammer Culpa”

21 Oct

Pathetic! Michael Voris sounded like a Stooge. It was as if, according to the Legend of The YES Network, that George Steinbrenner stood outside of The Television Booth with an AK 47, aimed at the head of Michael Kay.
Voris sounded almost as if he was Michael Kay.
Church Millitant.tv, meets the YES Network.

M, Eh!

The 7th Inning Tribute

29 Sep

It was almost as if the game was in The Bronx, except for the Proximity of The Cask and Flagon, Boston Beer Works and Game On Cafe, Brookline Avenue and the Massachusetts Turnpike & a Subway Line that looks like it would run near Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, above ground. Yes, this is Boston, which is a Fun Place.

And this was a farewell to a Baseball Superstar from the Mortal Enemy of The Boston Red Sox, the New York Yankees. It was done with Classical Music playing behind Irish Tenor, Ronan Tynan.
Ronan Tynan, Tenor and Medicinae Doctor, sang “God Bless America”, which was followed by Noted Latin American Musician and former NY Yankees Centerfielder, Bernie Williams, in a Musical Tribute to The Legendary Derek Sanderson Jeter, a major part of The Great Red Sox-Yankees Rivalry.

I was truly moved to Tears and they did flow.

And now that’s over.

With A Base Hit, It Ended

28 Sep

I was in tears just a few minutes ago, as Derek Jeter came out of the game.
A Great Baseball Era has ended.

Jeter,Drives In The Last Run and Signs

26 Sep

Prime Time Spectacle on YES, which is 80% Owned by FOX Sports, followed a script, whereby Derek Jeter drove in the Winning Run, after the Baltimore Orioles tied the Game. Only Tim Mc Carver was missing, along with Joe Buck.

This was a Typical FOX Sports Telecast, only with Michael Kay being the Annoying Blowhard in the place of Joe Buck. What was interesting was the Appearance of Andy Pettitte with some touch of grey in his hair, up in the FOX YES Booth.

The FOX Sports Type Telecast went as follows:
Pitcher, Catcher, Batter, JETER, Crowd Shot, Rudy Giuliani, JETER, Billy Crystal, JETER, Drrek’s Parents, Derrk’s Sister, Derek’s Nephew, JETER, Crowd Shot, JETER, Booth Shot, Crowd Shot, JETER, et cetera.

It was a Typical American League Game, lasting over 3 Hours. While I cheer for The Boston Red Sox, I grew up with the NY Mets at Shea Stadium, where a 9 Inning Game often went just a bit over two hours.

Fahk The Designated Hitter. I have seen Pitchers hit Triples like Orlando(El Duque)Hernandez.

Joe Torre, Jorge Posada, Andy Pettitte, Bernie Williams and Mariano Rivera were there. It was a Night to remember.

Derek’s Three Managers, Buck Showalter(Who managed the Yankees when Derek came up, now managing the Baltimore Orioles, who are Post Season Bound), Joe Torre(Who managed Four of The 5 World Series Championship Teams Derek was on) & Joe Girardi, who was Derek’s Teammate in 1996, were all there.

Many Hugs occurred at the end of The Game.

What got me was that Derek Jeter went out to Shortstop on the empty field and made The Sign of The Cross. I also, following on Television, made the Sign of The Cross. Derek is Catholic.

Deo Gratias

The Final “Roll Call” Of Bald Vinny

25 Sep

The Last Roll Call of Bald Vinny From Brooklyn is tonight at Yankee Stadium III, as this is the Last Time the name of Derek Jeter is called.

Vinny From Dyker Heights, Brooklyn, will lead the Final Charge on behalf of The Yankee Stadium Bleacher Creatures, in The Bronx.

This Night is also quite special, as the Voice of Robert Sheppard will also go dark tonight, after the Last At Bat for Derek Jeter. You see, Robert Sheppard died in 2012, but Derek Jeter has a recording of Sheppard announcing Derek’s Name to the Yankee Stadium Throng.

As for Bald Vinny, he and the Bleacher Creatures will enthrall the crowd one last time, when the Creatures intone “Derek Jeter”, followed by The Customary Wave from Derek Jeter. 

The Ovations for Derek Jeter will be Long and Loud and Deserved.
