The Evil Empire
I have to laugh when I think back to this summer when the Yankees were pronounced dead by many. This is the New York Yankees we are talking about. This is evil personified. Didn't George Steinbrenner make a pact with the devil back in 1996? It is only the combined prayers of the faithful that have kept the Yankees from winning the World Series every single year since 1996. Seriously though, even some of their players look like they belong in Hell. Randy Johnson is perfect for their team. Stick a pair of horns on him, give him back his facial hair and he and Lucifer could be twins. Joe Torre may be a decent guy, but don't they say the road to Hell is paved with good intentions? -- Joe, for the salvation of your eternal soul, please consider resigning and guiding some team like the Cubs or Indians (teams that really need a break) back to glory. --
Anyway, I think it will be the Yanks and Cardinals in the World Series. I wonder if we can hold one of those telethon deals and have people call in and make commitments to pray for the demise of the Yankees. Something fantastic happened last year (Greatest Choke Job in history). Why not this year as well? I won't be holding my breath though, we may have drawn too heavily upon the miracle well last year.
