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.
