HOF For Mike Piazza-Catholic

7 Jan

Mike Piazza was elected to The National Baseball Hall Of Fame at Cooperstown, NY for Year 4 Of his eligibility with 83% of Eligible Voters voting.
Ken Griffey Jr had over 90% of Eligible Voters. Congratulations to both Fine Men.A NY Mets Cap will appear on Mike Piazza’s Plaque.

William Roger Clemens is in his 4th Year of Eligibility, but managed just 45%. His #s are dropping. I guess that when he fired a 100 MPH Fastball at Mike Piazza’s Head while “Juiced”, in July, 2000, that Roger The Texas Conman might lose popularity.
His being called before The US House of Representatives & doing “The 5th Amendment Dance” didn’t help his cause. But throwing Roy Halliday “Under The Bus”, shouting “Steroids”, was not too cool. Neither was playing around with a 15 Year Old Country Singer for a few years, a smart move on his part.
By 2007, with a Rapidly Fading Career, and going down with a “Muscle Pull”, while behind in a game on his last team(Clue-The Club is located in The Melrose Section of The Bronx), it was time for The Texas Conman to hang it up.
You didn’t need Chemicals, Roger. It cost you Cooperstown.
Mike? Congrats again.

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!

It Being Halloween, I Went Tridentine

1 Nov

So I went to Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan on West 37th Street between Broadway and 7th Avenue. Our Lady’s Saturday was offered today.
Also, there was a Dominican(OP) Priest named Fr Innocent Smith, who taught us the Dominican Rosary. Afterwards, we had a reception in Isaiah Hall at Holy Innocents.
Then it was Vespers In Latin & then we left.
Mets are losing 5-3 to the KC Royals at Citi Field.
Time for a Missa Pro Metropolitanus.

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.
