So their second streak is shattered by the Florida Marlins (that'll teach me for putting up a condescending away message yesterday). However, if the Dodgers are going to win 7 out of 8 games or 17 out of 19 games for the rest of the season, They're gonna easily win the Championship. in 5 games, dropping only one game (or less) (assuming that my statistics stay constant, which they probably won't). So the Dodgers drop one to the Marlins, leaving them at 64-57, still 3 games ahead of their nearest divisional competitor, and 6 games ahead of last place in the closest division in baseball (NL West). So the Dodgers should enjoy their day off and tomorrow we take on the Giants of San Francisco. But, like Goliath, these Giants are going down! Meanwhile, I'm going to keep checking out dodgerblues.
The ultimate triumph for the Dodgers came in the form of the Dodgers being mentioned today as Stephen Colbert's buzz
Today's buzz... is the Los Angeles Dodgers... They're so hot, Dodger fans are staying for up to six innings before leaving to beat traffic.I left yesterday at the bottom of the sixth. It was just too painful to stay as they were almost, and ended up, being beaten by double digits.
In other news, I think I am going to be one of the heads of a taskforce and thinktank to figure out how to get more young adults to come to the synagogue. Does anyone have any suggestions they think I should bring to the table. I'm already bringing the Kol Zimrah idea, that we have a monthly extra-crunchy Carlebach service (as opposed to regular) (isn't that a more popular flavor at KFC, at least I liked it better in my non-Kosher days long ago).
There is currently a petition with some 40,000 signators petitioning the UN to demand that Israel get reparations paid to them for the damage caused by Hizbullah. I doubt that this will make any difference in the blatantly anti-Semitic agenda of the world body, but please take 5 seconds out of your day to say that you support Israel and demand that the UN recognizes our innocence in this matter with this token task. In case you haven't noticed, this entire paragraph is a link. Click somewhere on it and make your voice heard.
D'var Torah later or tomorrow...
