Skylight’s Last Gleaming

I am quoting Patti LaBelle directly there from her unique rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner” before Game 4. Here, you can see the Skylight’s Last Gleaming and the rockets bursting in air as I used my Canon A540 to take the following video of the last pitch of Game 4 and the fireworks. Enjoy and keep on blogging!

7 REASONS NOT TO TRADE JAKE PEAVY
Check it out-http://kaybee.mlblogs.com

That is exactly what I am talking about in my latest rant (which can be found at http://metsmainman.mlblogs.com/archives/2008/10/no_more.html). Why can’t people just enjoy baseball as a whole, enjoy the World Series, and stop worrying about their own teams for 1 week??? I hate all this speculation about where what could happen but won’t happen in a million years. I really recommend you read it, but I can’t help but blurt out all my feelings again in this comment. It is just really sad to me these days how much money is important to everything, I really cry to myself about how cheap MLB is, and how they demand so much attention from TV and the media and the press and rumors and how players are making millions of dollars but that isn’t enough! I want to enjoy the World Series, the premier show of baseball that happens once a year, but I cannot because I am forced to listen to rumors and specualtion and all that other junk, because there are barely any pure baseball fans anymore.

PATTI LABELLE’S “ANTHEM” of 2008 World Series:
PITIFUL, PITIFUL, PITIFUL!!! (read the WHOLE blog LaBelle faithfuls and those rolling your eyes…)
SHAME ON YOU MLB!!! YOU, yes YOU MLB, SHOULD BE SUED IN A COURT OF LAW FOR ALLOWING… YES ALLOWING THAT CRAP TO BE SUNG, let alone AIRED ON TV.
WHEN… PLEASE TELL US (those people who respect and honor the National Anthem) WHEN… ALL RESPONSIBLE PARTIES IN ALL SPORTS WILL CRITIQUE… – yes, CRITIQUE – the singer’s rendition PRIOR (hello… PRIOR!!!) TO ALLOWING HIM/HER TO REPRESENT AMERICA IN OUR SONG… (NO, IT’S NOT HER/HIS SONG…. IT’S OURS!).
Patti LaBelle’s “rendition” was not only botched in lyrics (how could that be allowed to happen?), but was sung with a focus on herself and how soulful SHE could be / sing, and NOT the song itself. MOST of us would have had NO PROBLEM with her belting out the correct lyrics in a manner that was soulful and motivating, yet ACCURATELY followed the general and accepted / traditional melody, inflections, tone, etc. of the song as WE know it AND respect it. There are ways to sing OUR anthem that ENHANCE the song itself, and are done with class and respect (of which Patti LaBelle showed none), dignity, and appreciation for THE ANTHEM…. its NOT A F#%$*@% POP TUNE… adding lyrics, botching them, and singing out of acceptable bounds simply ENHANCES AND RE-ASSURES what other countries think of us and our reputation… That something as sacred as – OUR National Anthem – can be ALLOWED to be turned into a DISGRACE!
PITIFUL!!! – GET YOUR F#%$*@% ACT TOGETHER MLB, AND ALL PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR…… OUR ANTHEM.
(f#%$*@% idiots: All of you that are guilty of the above. no wonder the USA is going into the toilet. Crap like this from people in power that have NO f#%$*@% right being there / making decisions like these).
Am I pissed off! You bet I am. This is just a minor indicator of what a cesspool the USA is turning into. Its time we cleaned up our act and became AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL, THE POWERFUL, THE INDEPENDENTLY SOLVENT AND THE RESPECTED… ONCE AGAIN.
Am I Pissed-Off? You bet I am.
Signed,
Pissed-off and temporarily humiliated to be a proud American in this instance once again… FF#%$*@% ONCE AGAIN.

Good Game 5 tonight. Rain is starting to pour.

So who gets the honor tonight. We have had a the sweet blonde country star, the RnB goddess of soul and Philly sass. Could it be Frank Stallone next doing a medley of Rocky songs.
Serious here, both singers have left an impression on America. People know why theu love Taylor Swift the sam way they loved Jessica Simpson for so long. Cute, innocient and can bel out a tune. Patti LaBelle is the daughter of Philly not only for her sassying singing, but for the persona that is the city.

Let’s hope tonight singer just knocks our socks off. Then hopefully we can go back to Tampa Bay and we can make our sax playing local guy BK an international star doing the National Anthem.

Hopefully Tom Arnold is already booked

That was some action. Perhaps for that game they should have changed the lyrics to “bombs bursting over the left field wall”.
