"Malo Yankees Est" In Gregorian Chant Worked Like A Prayer Last Night

As you may have noticed, Gregorian Chant is the Music of this blog. I know that it's unusual for a Baseball Blog, where the LINGUA FRANCA can get a little rough(Especially when Alex Emmanuel Rodriguez or Tim Mc Carver, is my Subject/Target), but the Music is soothing & prayerful:

During last night's Red Sox-Yankees Game on MY9, a FOX Channel, I chanted a Gregorian Piece, 1st tested in Fenway Park, this past Sunday. It went like this;

"Malo Yankees Est, Malo Yankees Est, Sed Libera Nos A Malo";

As my Latin Mass in Queens is full of Intelligentia & Red Sox Fans to boot, we're used to Gregorian Chant;

Loosely translated into my Lingua Franca(East NY Brooklynese), the Latin Chant means "Yankees Suck, Yankees Suck, Save Us from Steinbrenner". The Actual Translation from Latin is "The Yankees Are Evil...But Deliver Us From Evil";

OK, "Sed Libera Nos A Malo" is from the "Pater Noster" or "Our Father" in Latin. One learns a lot at a Traditional Latin Mass. The Latin, in Gregorian Chant, certainly sounds prayerful & peaceful, as opposed to the Lingua Franca version;

I chanted the Gregorian Version(Or Yankgorian Version), as the Yankees were vanquished 7-3. With Yankees Fans fleeing Yankee Stadium, like roaches, thoughts of "What would Tony, Paulie Walnuts & Uncle Junior Do, in this Situation", filled their minds;

& you wonder why I love The Red Sox & the Traditional Latin Mass-it brings out creativity;

Deo Gratias;

Pax Vobiscum;

Mike

Did you know that "Introibo ad altare Dei, ad Deum qui laetificat juventutem meam" when PROPERLY translated, means "The Red Sox rock my world?"

Blue State?

You must have been an Altar Boy, to come up with that;

It's translated into "I will Go To The Altar of God; The God Of My Joy & My Youth";

Hence, The Red Sox also Rock my World;

Pax Vobiscum;

I love the Gregorian chant you have here. Not sure about those other applications, though!

Malo, Georgia, means Evil or Sickness in Latin:

Our Least Favorite Baseball Team in our Latin Mass Gathering is the NY Yankees;

Most of us are Boston Red Sox Fans, in our Gathering. The Group tends to be a rather well-educated group;

May as well have fun with it all!
