On Ascension Sunday, we look up and are reminded, invited, challenged, freed
to look down and see where Jesus walked
and follow him.

Why I like New York 38: baseball

Yankees.

Mets.

Cyclones.

Yankees (Staten Island variety).

Games in Central Park.

Games in other parks.

Baseball abounds in New York.

Two major league teams means the Pittsburgh Pirate come to town. Not often, but they do come to town. For those who bleed black and gold, me for example, that’s a blessing.

The weekend of May 17 and 18, the Pirates dropped two to the Yankees.

Today a three-game series began with the Mets at CitiField.

Members of the Columbia Theological Seminary Doctor of Class went to the game with me today. My friends Don Jang and John Gingrich also attended. As did Bob Brashear, a fellow Pittsburgh guy.

We saw a great game. And the Pirates came from behind to win. A Bucco win makes this an easier post to write, but baseball with friends is always pretty good.

With Bob at Pirates game

See you along the Trail.
