Indians eliminate Yankees

Back in 1999 just before the Millennium, God and Allah were in a bar up in heaven. God has always been a Yankee fan. Allah favors the Mets. “Jeez, God,” said Allah, “for like a thousand years the Yankees always win. Why don’t you make it interesting? how about giving my boys a chance?”

All right, said God, games should be fair. The Mets can win henceforward sometimes, and the Yankees accordingly will lose. And such is The All-new Divine Plan.

But Lo! The Yankees immediately in that Very Millennial Year, 2000, defied the Lord’s Plan and humiliated the Mets to win the World Series. Allah sneered. Some God! Saith Allah, come October You can’t even control nine guys on a ball field.

Maybe they’re more afraid of Steinbrenner than Me, saith the Lord. You Allah may smite New York Itself and henceforward I assure You until the Mets win and win again, the Yankees will come close and then closer but, like the Cubs, with whom I am also wroth, never again triumph.

Allah cackled. He prepared his mighty airliners.

God and hockey rule. The very night the Red Sox defeated the Rockies in Denver, the New Jersey Devils opened their new arena The Rock in Newark. Before the Devils moved to New Jersey, they were the original Colorado Rockies. Despite Vatican 2, only Latin is spoken in Heaven. There must have been a translation problem.

Sports brings out the Stephen Colbert in me.
