And yet with all this going on in the game I noticed another wonderful thing that happened the moment everyone started rooting and chanting for their team. All the people there, be they White, African American, Asian, Indian, Jewish, etc..., were one. Strangers were high- fiveing each other. patting each other on the shoulders, and discussing the important events that had taken place to help their Yankees in the game. They did not care whether they were Asatru, Christian, Muslim, or Jewish. They did not care what race they were from. In that moment, in that place, they were all Yankee fans and that was all that mattered !
By Odin's beard why can't we do this outside of a stadium ! We can put aside our prejudices to root for a baseball team but will not show our compassion to each other in the real world. I mean wouldn't it be great if we could all get together and "root" for a good unifying cause. How about stopping global warming, or maybe finding an efficient clean energy, or ending world hunger, or just cleaning up all the damage we have done to Mother Earth ! These causes could bring us together and would help all of humanity no matter what race, religion or creed you are.
I really think that this is what humanity needs at this point. A great unifying project that could bring all peoples together in a common cause. Something to emulate the Yankees on a huge scale. Could this happen ? Of course ! Will it happen? Probably not !
As I was walking back to my car I heard several racial remarks about the area around the stadium and the people there. It was almost as thought the unifying magic that brought all thes diverse people together in the stadium disappeared the moment they left. What a shame. What a shame !
Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love and Thor's protection !
