God & Man at The Stadium
My colleague (and much better Catholic) John Wilson scored tickets to the big "game" today at Yankee Stadium.
The Bombers aren't in town, but a Cardinal is "pitching." (Though based on the early season, Yankee starters could use some divine inspiration.)
Concert at noon. Mass starts at 2:30. For now, we are trapped in a never-ending line.
Oh, was at NY ComicCon on Saturday. Pictures of both events will be posted later.
Will try live blog until service begins -- depending on Blogger/Treo technical issues.
UPDATE (8:00 PM): Well, obviously, the live blogging didn't work. But here are some nice artifacts of a rather memorable day:
Yep, this would appear to be the train to Yankee Stadium.
Ronan Tynan performs as part of the "Concert of Hope" before Mass.
Hey, not even a man of the cloth can depend on divine guidance for everything.
Yours truly awaiting the big event.
Jose Feliciano entertains the crowd with, among other tunes, Lee Greenwood's "God Bless The USA".
One of the lucky few to get communion from The Pope.
"Il Papa" takes a trip around the stadium and gives a farewell wave:
If I can get a technical problem fixed, look for some video a bit later on.
UPDATE II: Here are more pics from Sunday.
