 :cwm12: :happy: The Cubs finally did it folks. Its a miracle. We just won our third game in Wrigly Field South. A salute to all my fellow eternal optimists, err I mean Cubs fans.

A few signs I saw after the game in the stands:

"Is This Heaven?"

"Cubtoberfest"

"Miracles Do Happen!"

"Harry is here with us"

"The Curse is Over"

"Next Year is Here. Go Cubs"

"Hey Hey; Holy Cow" (with Harry Carey's profile)

"The Cubs are Red Hot and its Freezing in Hell"

I've always been a Braves and a Cubs fan.  But I just couldn't be for the Braves.  When I lived in Atlanta I once drove 15 miles to retrieve a Cub's hat that a friend had lost out of the window.

GO CUBBIES!!!!!!

To bad the Cubs lost last night.  :-(
Tonight I have the grand delema of which of my 2 home teams to cheer for...  Yankees are the ancestral team of my dad's side of my family, (he grew up in Nyack) Red Sox of my mum's (she grew up in Boston & her fam still lives there & has season tickets).  I'll probably go for the Red Sox, because, unlike the Yankees, they haven't been in, much less won a World Series since before my family came to the U.S.

well I guess y'all can guess I'm gunna root for the cubbies tonight.  A thought on it, the cubs havent' been in since before WWI.  Yeah were excited.  If it wasn't for that wind last night, we woulda won.  When the wind is blowing out from wrigly, it is VERY easy to get homers.

that's true Ania!  I can't wait for teh redsox-cubs world series.  That will Rock!  

If only yesterday wasnt' wendsday I coulda had FRIED MARLAN for dinner.  

I do have to say that those were the two most exciting baseball games I've seen in my entire life.  I couldn't get cubs on tv so I watched the playbyplay at www.cubs.com while I watched the Yankees Redsox game on the tv.  So I was up to 4 in the morning doing my homework, who cares the cubs won!

Actually, just did some research...  
Apparently the Sox did go to the World Series in '86.  Anyway, very sad, Sox lost last night.  At least they'll be playing at Fenway next, homefield advantage & all that.  Anyone got $180 to splurge for the first 2 Series games at Fenway (eternal optimism once again)?  Wish I did.  Games 1 & 2 will be (if they beat the Yanks) at Fenway, 3, 4, & 5 are away, 6 & 7 at Fenway again...

Not that I expect the Marlins to win 2 more games in a row, but it's nice that they're holding on a little bit longer....

At least tonight we are back in God's Little Acre err, I mean Wrigly Field! Lets just hope the wind ain't blowin out like it was during the first game.  We need a quick shut out of the marlans so that Prior and Wood will have to rest their arms before the start of the World Series.

That is ridiculous to not have a visiting priest come!!!

We had no services at my church last week since our regular priest was out of town and the visiting priest got sick.  I normally come an hour before Orthros to fill the candles with oil and cut prosphora...but I didn't intend on coming early last week to drive Father to the ER!  Thankfully it didn't seem too serious and he should be ok.

I agree it is a good thing that I don't go to those meetings.

Not yet. Had secrurity not been there and had he not changed clothes and waited several hours after the game ended to leave the park, he would be dead today.

I pray that he has a good set of freinds and family to support him and he is able to move to Miami because that is the only place he will be able to live in peace.

Exactly, Joe.  The poor kid paid good money and had that seat for a reason: hopefully to catch a ball!  I don't know why fans have to turn into a mob!  Thank Heaven that security acted quickly!

Well... on the bright side I suppose if the Yankees beat the Redsox & play the Marlins, I won't feel as bad cheering for the non-underdog as I would if they end up playing the Cubs, though I do hold on to the quickly fading hope that the SOX somehow break thru.

GO YANKEES!!!

On a more serious note, about the Wednesday/Friday fasts, I don't know if the remark about the liturgical day beginning at sundown was made in jest or not, but that's actually what I do: Tuesday evening to Wednesday evening, and Thursday evening to Friday evening.  Does anyone else do that?  Speaking personally, it's the only way I can practice these fasts without being a hassle to my mother, who I often visit on Friday nights, and who makes food mostly for meat-lovers, and whose position on fasting is "God doesn't need for you to starve yourself...here, eat this".  :-";"xx

As to the fasting thing...  The only time we did that was when we would drive down to NYC on Fridays for the weekend, and following tradition going to Chef 93 (very good Chinese resteraunt on 93rd & Lexington), and in order to get some of their excellent meat dishes my dad would say, "Well, they've already served Vespers, so we need an order of Mushu, Hunan, & Seseme chicken, Sweet & Sour Pork, steamed dumplings, fried dumplings, 8 eggrolls, 3 bowls of cold seseme noodles, etc etc.  BTW, I eat fish on Wednesdays & Fridays, & I'm ROCOR, so :-P.  
Anyway, back to baseball... SOX WON!!!  Yeay, unfortunately I wasn't able to watch the game, but I listened to it on the way to IKEA (finally have furniture, yeay).  
Don't worry Joe, my teams (either the Yankees or the Sox, hopefully the Sox), will blow the Marlins to smitherines.  Defensively the Marlins stink, & their only forte is hitting balls into the outfield, where both the Yankees & the Sox have excellent players to catch them.  
Anyway, enough... time to work.

Nektarios:  you mean Reagan right? He is after all the only president born in Illinois.

What the cubs did after the last game was absolutely perfect.  They sang Ole Lang Sine.  

Oh and God Bless the fan who threw Pudge's homerun ball back on the field.  For those who don't follow baseball, that is a symbolic gesuture saying it is worthless.

Dear Ania,

While it is true that I don't like baseball (much the opposite, to tell you the truth), I love New York, and so I must say GO YANKEES!!!  Besides, I go to church in the Bronx...long live the BX!!  

Dear 29,

Joe Torre is a Nestorian??  You're kidding, right?

If he is protestant I guess you could say that....since most protestants would NEVER call the Panagia the Theotokos.....some won't even go so far as calling her the Christotokos.  So in a sense the Nestorian heresy lives on.

Well yeah, maybe, but Joe Torre doesn't look like an Assyrian to me.  And if he was Catholic and decided to convert to Nestorianism, I'd be very shocked.  Surely, this is a crack aimed at anathematising Torre for some reason--any reason--right?

Most protestants don't have an infatuation with Greek theological jargon either-- most protestants would say "what on earth are you talking about?"

Anyway, to get back on topic-- as a Marylander I am of course bound to root for whoever is playing the Yankees. But to be reduced to rooting for the Marlins  Sad - it's almost as bad as having to explain Gene Robinson.  Tongue

I guess Torre is not a Nestorian. It was a rumor circulating around resulting from an incident in one of the ALCS games.

In the Yankees' locker room, Torre found an Old Believer prayer book in Jeter's locker. Apparently, Torre was quite upset about this. He brought the issue up with Jeter later on. Jeter thought Torre was upset because Jeter is a member of ROAC. Jeter mentioned this to him and Torre said he didn't have a problem with ROAC per se. The media heard about the disagreement and then deemed Torre a Nestorian for some reason. Nobody knows what Torre was really upset about.

I'm with Phil on this one.  What would a ROAC person be doing with an Old Believer prayerbook?  I'm fairly sure ROAC does not accept Old believers because the schism was over Praxis and not Faith.  (although I can't say much cause I'd love to purchase one just as a curiosity)

It's a simple question that you then have to translate out of the Greek and after that, explain what you mean by "Mother of God", and after all that probably half of them don't care one way or the other until you put them theologically on the spot and they give you an off-the-cuff answer and then you can say "Ha! A Nestorian!"

Are you sure, Ania? I saw an ESPN special on sports figures who are ROCiE and there were no Yankees. There were a couple of New York Knicks, but that's basketball.

Some of the Knicks are ROCiE, but the Yankees were very much connected to Vitaly & his crew.  When he went, they followed... It was covered extensively on NBC Nightly News w/ Tom Brokaw.  Not that it was a great loss to ROCOR, they still have the Mets & the Giants, (I think the Jets are divided amoung ROCOR, ROCiE, the Serbs, & the MP).  Of course, the Red Sox & the New England Patriots are equally devided between GOC & ROCOR.  :-D
Anyway, everyone have a good weekend... Yankees & Marlins I think start playing Sunday night.
