Baseball & Catholicism

Baseball on Grass & Dirt=Tradition:
Baseball on Artificial Turf is Soooooooooo "Novus Ordo";
Baseball, played OUTDOORS=Tradition;
Baseball played INDOORS under a dome="Novus Ordo";
Peanuts, Cracker Jacks, Hot Dogs & Pizza=Tradition in Baseball;
Sushi, Meat Patties & Hummous In Pita=Novus Ordo in Baseball, though tasty;
Luxury Suites=Novus Ordo;
Bleachers & Grandstands=Tradition

Latin Mass=Tradition
Vernacular Interpretations are NOT Translations, hence Novus Ordo

My Baseball is traditional;
My Sacred Music is Traditional;
My Mass is Traditional

Like Georgia on "Salve Regina" talking about NHL Hockey & its' Catholic Elements, I'm here to point out Baseball's Traditional Elements, though I do love the NHL's System of 'Penances" in the Penalty Box, Hockey's Version of either The Confessional or Purgatory;

Chill to "The(Gregorian)Chant", right now;

You've hit something true here, Michael. There is definitely a sacred feeling to games played outdoors, on real turf, in the sunshine. A hot dog may not be a sacrament, but it sure comes closer than a veggie-burger.

Veggie Burger?

Ahhh, the Casual Fan Arse Hats!

They're the ones in Shea Stadium, who think it's cool to root for the Yankees vs the Sox, in commemoration of 1986;

Or the Preppie-Lookers, who tell me not to comment about their Mets, who they know ABSOLUTELY ZILCH About;

& I'm old enough to be their father & they don't understand anything about The NL in NYC.

Nor that rooting for The Yankees is a sign of being either a Front Runner, or Retarded, Baseball-Wise.

Anita? Even my Baseball writings have a Catholic tone & I intend to keep it in that direction. Veggie Burgers @ Fenway Park or Shea Stadium? Oh, what a an idea for hipsters & arrivistas, to come to games to look cool & not really appreciate the Game.
