Just four years removed from their third straight 100-loss season in 2013, the Astros shut down the Yankees for two straight games after dropping three in a row in the Bronx.

Next up for the Astros: Game 1 of the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night. Houston aces Dallas Keuchel and Justin Verlander will have plenty of rest, too, before the matchup begins at Dodger Stadium.

Now tell me, all you frum clowns, yes, you know who you are... The ones that rented a box, and posted pictures with a bunch of teenage boys, and the ones that sat behind home plate and looked around to make sure that everybody knew they were there, or those that stood up so that they can see who else is part of the Jewish whos who...Taking your nearest and Dearest, to the game last week, spending thousands and thousands of dollars exhibiting your u'nbridled and unabashed love for your dearly beloved Yankees, how do you feel now? Do you feel foolish pretending to care about something you really dont, living alongside the lying, fallacious pretentiosness of the world??? Shame on you! You should have gone to a bais hamidrash, and sat and learned with all those you pretend to care so much about. It would have gone a lot further.....a gutten vinter!!!.

It is easy to judge and call people clowns and state the obvious.
But believe it or not,some go to the game as an alternative in place of going to worse things in life.
There are those that do not understand the excitement of getting pshat in the gemara,and they need some excitement to fill that void.
So they go to a Yankees game to get that missing excitement.
Please let us be on the side of empathy,instead of easy condemnation.
The fact that the Yankees did not make it to the World Series does not negate the excitement these people felt in their team almost winning,and if that makes them smile and be happy,so be it.
It is far better than them turning to heavy liquor or dangerous car joy rides that can also make people happy.
These are complicated times that we are living in,and clear direction is so hard to find.
But one thing is clear,that bad naming and joking at those that have chosen this sort of excitement will not help anyone.
One can daven for them to find excitement in their learning,but there should never be a need to mock them,if they have not found their way yet.

You are a very good person, and I do feel bad for you living in such a terrible and harsh world. I wish you 120 years of health, happiness, prosperity, and the ability to find happiness in the Torah... I mean that very seriously!

I am a Yankee fan, but didn't go to the game. However, I do know one of those people you are talking about & he wakes up at 5am to learn, daven & go to work. This man is constantly looking to give money to those who need it & invites homeless Jews to share his Shabbat meals & take showers before Shabbat in his home. He is a very well to do person, but HATES being mentioned when giving tzadaka & refuses to cut lines when stores try to give him the kavod. Therefore, before you judge people, know the truth about them. As for the Yankees I was really hoping we'd play the world series against the Dodgers, it would have meant a lot to me since my GM was a dodgers fan & me a yankees & I would have felt it was a wink from her after a terrible year.

I must admit that I myself did not go to the games,as I live out of the state,but I do appreciate your kind words,and Amen!
And may you too have a gutten vinter!!
