If You Think Religion and Politics Are Divisive...
Just try having a conversation between baseball fans of the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees. Or is it Stankees? Or is it Yuckees?
Just a bit of humor to break up the news and the theological musings. Although for some, baseball IS a religion. And as a child, I was brought to the sacred path of Yawkey Way in Boston to the cathedral of Fenway to cheer on the saints like Jim Rice, Carlton Fisk and Luis Tiant. And I learned at a very early age to hold fast to "the truth" and denounce the heretics of baseball in their pinstripes.
It's true: being a fan of the Yankees is like being a huge fan of fascism.
