Yankees win 4-3!! ALCS Game 2 NYY v Anaheim Angels…

Back to Newsday Blog I was too excited to type:

THIRTEENTH INNING: YANKEES WIN, 4-3.

Bottom: To steal a phrase from the late great Bob Murphy, the Yankees “win the damn thing.”

Of course it wasn’t your typical walkoff play, because this game was completely atypical in every which way.

With runners on first and second and one out, Melky Cabrera hit a grounder to the left of second baseman Maicer Izturis. The Angels second baseman fielded it cleanly, yet instead of simply getting the sure out at first base he spun and threw to second.

Of course the throw was wild and Jerry Hairston – who led off the inning with a single – scored easily.

Hairston was awarded the pie in the face from Burnett after the game, and it was a neat pie. Hairston saw Burnett coming, and Burnett stopped right when he got to Hairston. For a second there was nothing, but just when Hairston’s defenses were down Burnett pied him in the face.

So the Yankees fly to Anaheim tonight two wins away from their first World Series berth since 2003.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Title changed to reflect the independent status of Daggett and the possibility the polls are missing a real surge of discontent with both parties in NJ -Gawd knows they messed with the polls during the Dem primaries enough and anyone looking at that ABC WaPo poll that polled just 20% GOP voters to 33% Dems to get a positive read for the Obamacare plan also knows that the polls often lie, I should know better, my apologies. MiM

FOX NJ: New Jersey’s three major gubernatorial candidates debated for the second time Friday.Gov. Jon Corzine, Republican Chris Christie and Independent Chris Daggett met on the campus of William Paterson University.Recent polls show the race is a dead heat between Corzine and Christie, with Daggett polling in the teens.The election is Nov. 3.

“V” promo 4; V Premieres Tuesday, November 3rd 8/7 C

Courtesy of KryptonSiteNetwork

Back in August MiM was concerned when word leaked that ‘V’ production had gone into hiatus that the reason might be that the idiot network might be trying to de-Obamify it. That is, take out the elements that are (for the network and Obots) probably very uncomfortable. This being the HOPEY CHANGEY PEACEY lies by the aliens. Well, you cannot take the lies out of the aliens in ‘V’. Let’s hope they leave it alone and let it rise or fall on the ratings without tampering with it….

Happy Diwali!

~Bumped for 2010 Diwali~

WSJ:

(..)The five-day Diwali festival is as important to Hindus as Christmas is to Christians. Leading up to the festival, dozens of special dishes are prepared, houses are cleaned, candles lit, sweets are distributed and, in India, firecrackers are set off in huge celebrations. But for some followers, Diwali is as much about the “awareness of the inner light,” its literal meaning, as it is the opportunity to ask the gods for a fortuitous balance sheet.

…The financial aspect of Diwali was first started centuries ago in Western India, where many families owned businesses and the holiday was considered the official start of the new year. Handwritten ledger books were traditionally closed on the holiday, and new ones were opened and blessed by a priest. The practice soon became recognized and adopted by many throughout India and overseas.

…Based on the Hindu calendar, the actual date of Diwali changes every year, but always occurs during the new moon in October or November. This year, it falls on Oct. 17.

Hindus believe Diwali is the day Lord Rama returned to the holy kingdom of Ayodhya after 14 years in exile. He was greeted with rows upon rows of lit diyas, or small clay lamps, celebrating the triumph of good over evil. It is said that homes that glow the brightest will be the ones to best attract the attention and blessings of Goddess Lakshmi, who symbolizes the earth, wealth, prosperity and abundance. A deity of near-cult status among Hindus, the goddess is often depicted with coins falling from her hands.

Most devotees will light up their homes with lamps and candles, distribute sweets and visit a temple — they regard the holiday as a time to start new projects and relinquish grudges. But the growing group that recognizes the financial aspects of the holiday will go through a formal prayer ceremony called Sharada, or Chopda Puja (accounts prayer)…

AskIndia:

As with other Indian festivals, Diwali signifies many different things to people across the country. In north India, Diwali celebrates Rama’s homecoming, that is his return to Ayodhya after the defeat of Ravana and his coronation as king; in Gujarat, the festival honors Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth; and in Bengal, it is associated with the goddess Durga. Everywhere, it signifies the renewal of life, and accordingly it is common to wear new clothes on the day of the festival; similarly, it heralds the approach of winter and the beginning of the sowing season.
