Our Father who art in Cooperstown,
Hallowed be thy game.
The World Series shall come.
Let Yankee celebrations be none
In Arlington as it is in the Bronx.
Give us this year the Rangers vs. the Giants,
And forgive us our hatred of the Bronx Bombers,
As we forgive those overspending, arrogant, Damn Yankees,
And lead us not into more Dark Ages,
But deliver us from the Evil Empire.
For thine is the glory of the National Pastime,
And pitching is the power, and the Yankees have had more than their share of glory,
for ever and ever.
A friend of mine, posted her Yankee prayer on Facebook. Now that the ALCS is over, I feel that I don’t have to keep my prayer to myself anymore (especially since it worked). The prayers of all of the non-Yankee fans and the inspired Ranger fans have been heard. It also helped having a baseball god, Nolan Ryan, in our corner. Thanks for the inspiration, Peggy.
