So Who Is God, Anyway?

As I’ve made clear on this blog many times, I’ve always thought this Yankee was God.

In fact, whenever he saves a game, as he did in tonight’s 6-4 win over the White Sox, I usually picture him this way.
But now along comes Ozzie Guillen, who spoke after the game in glowing terms of the Yankees captain, according to this MLB article. He said of Jeter:
“He is God.”
And Ozzie isn’t wrong. Jeet did have four RBIs, including a homer and a triple, and broke his tie with Junior Griffey for the most hits among active players. Not too shabby. But is he God and not Mo? Here’s more of what Ozzie said about Derek:
“The guy always has good-looking women around him too. I mean, God bless him.”
Now wait a second. How can Jeter be God if God is blessing him? I’m very confused. But here’s what I’m perfectly clear about — tonight’s win was a beautiful thing. Andy didn’t have it, but he didn’t fall apart either, and Aceves, Marte, Joba and Mo did the rest. Winning teams are all about somebody stepping up when needed. Tonight, we had several somebodys…and at least two Gods.



    There’s nothing wrong with Polytheism. ๐Ÿ˜€ I was very impressed with our bullpen. Andy showed he’s human, but settled down and the White Sox actually have one of the best bull pens in baseball, but great timely hitting by Captain Clutch and it’s a win for our side. Maybe after Obama praised Mo so much Derek was a little jealous and wanted to show the President who he should have been scared of? I hope that two run triple doesn’t affect his presidential duties tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜€ plus, the Rays and bosox actually lost today so its a triple wammy! I’m glad you liked the pic too! ๐Ÿ™‚

    That game was awesome! I couldn’t have asked for a better first game to see. Let’s go Yankees!

    Maybe that was it, seindsfeld – Jeter was jealous of the praise Mo got from the Prez and decided to show off. LOL. Yes, our competition lost yesterday so our win was triple the fun. I love when that happens!

    So glad you got to see a win, cheshirecat. I thought of you whenever there was a homer (didn’t you say you were sitting in the bleachers?). Maybe you could go to every game and bring the Yankees luck????

    Yup, that Rivera character has potential, Paul. He could go places.

    I rarely ever believe anything that comes out of Ozzies mouth, be it Guillen or Osbourne and does anyone really understand what either are saying, or do either of them really know what they are trying to say…. We all have our images of God, some are printable others are not… I thought at one point last night the Yankees were going to let the ChiSox have a freebie…LOL

    Well, I guess Jeter could be a manly-human kind of God, Jenn- the kind that gets married. lol.

    Ozzie is quite entertaining, no matter what the subject, Peter. He’s completely uncensored, which makes him an anomaly in baseball. No cliches. No “I can’t talk about it.” He just blurts out whatever’s in his head. As long as he’s not my manager, I sit back and enjoy.

    Jane: The whole Yankee team is God for me. I don’t know what I’d do without them….
    But today, they are like the Anti Christ. They seriously killed me today…
    And leave it to Ozzie to be looking at all Jeet’s girls. He’s such a greasy pig, it’s revolting…

    Today was a rough one, Virginia, especially because the offense came all the way back – only to watch Marte blow it. But your fave, Mitre, did great. Big confidence boost for him, I bet.

    If Mo is God. Then my Angels are under his service LOL

    now that’s awkward…. I can’t possibly see why they would ever stick around a guy who they can barely hit against! :O

    I remember when Marco Scutero and Ichiro both hit a walk off hit and home run respectively (well different games of course lol) against Mo various sport highlight shows had analysts analyzing what not.. and interviewing various people. It was quite a mess. It was as if the world ended LOL though he is only human.
