"Patience" In "The Nation"

According to a wise & learned man, a Priest who once ran the High School Seminary of the RC Diocese of Brooklyn, & who was later my Pastor, in Woodhaven, Queens, the word "Patience" comes from the Latin Verb, meaning "To Suffer":

As we all know just how key, Mr Jason Varitek, Catcher for The Boston Red Sox is, we took some advantage of the fact that he was there, steady & able & so key in the '04 WS Championship as well as the Grand Comeback of '04 & in '05;

His knee is out & that was operated on, recently, which disables him for 4 to 6 weeks;

We, of "Red Sox Nation", are noted for our endurance & were rewarded for that faith in '04;

Those of the "Universe", who, in many cases, may only be "Aficionados" for the past 2 weeks or so, think of suffering as something someone else should go through, for gratification in their often, own-meaningless lives, in the mob mentality, thus having no appreciation for the term, called fan;
I know of that "Universe" as many of us are watching people wearing their caps, accumulating like rats in the streets, having no clue as to what they're cheering for, other than it's the "In-Vogue" thing to do,with all the smugness which follows;

If things don't go their way, inflicting pain on others, becomes their rationale.

Patience is a virtue!

& we shall endure!

& that is what sets us apart from the "Universe", where "YES" can be construed as a 4 letter word in our Nation, as well as a propaganda-style sports network & "Kay" can mean a ranting jackass.

Or in the immortal words of Archie Bunker, who I believe was a Mets fan:

"Patience is a virgin."

Keep the faith!

Indeed, he was!

The only time that team, known as the Yankees, was mentioned, was when Reggie Jackson, was on "Archie Bunker's Place";

Archie was a Mets Fan, d'ere!

We don't need patience...we need pitching...

Pitching is needed, BADLY:

But, to be an "Aficionado", Patience is needed;

That's why "Aficionados of The Universe", do not qualify.

Michael, your optimism is mirrored only by mine. We are two Red Sox peas in a pod of internet baseball love. And I appreciate it!

Understood, Peter, as I intend this piece to be a message of hope.

I mis-judged Wells:

I was enamored of his pitching, this past Friday Evening.
