Two words used alot in the church of God and in the church of Baseball, particularly in Boston.
You pray and pray and hope that God answers your prayers to give you the answer you want. Some of us 'pray' to the Gods of Baseball in hopes of making it to October Road with our team. Some churches you pray on your knees, some do the cross thing with your hands, some kneel and bow, but in Baseball, we pray in all sorts of ways.
There are times we are praying for that hit and runs at the end of the game to take it away from worthy opponents. Basically the prayer goes like this (said under your breath) "pleasepleasepleasepleasepleaseplease"
Then we may use another cultures means and methods in making sure our opponents go down a fiery death....
Either Way...Baseball is a game where It Ain't OVAH till IT'S OVAH!!!
