I know that I am a sinner.
I have no business asking you for anything.
One of my earliest blog entries was based on a pun on the name of your servant, Oral Roberts. I called it something funny just to get a lot of hits. It's still getting them.
Anyway, I'm sorry. Please hear my prayer, and I'll delete it.
Tonight, The Texas Rangers will face the despicable New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series.
The Yankees have had Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig, Reggie Jackson, Billy Martin, and Mickey Mantle on their roster.
The Rangers once had Mississippi taxidermist Ned Yost.
I know that the Ballpark in Arlington is built on stolen land. I know that George W. Bush threatened to pull the team out of Arlington unless he got a sales tax increase and a $205,000,000.00 subsidy. I know he bought the team for $86,000,000.00 and then turned around and sold it for $250,000,000.00 I know that he never properly thanked the taxpayers.
But the Yankees are worse. They've won it all so many times that they now personify evil.
But is there any way you could arrange for Josh Hamilton to hit the game-winning RBI in World Series game seven? That wouldn't be asking for too much, would it?
