Baseball Over Here

It’s . . . interesting.If you like a little Kabbalah with your baseball and your artwork, do I have the product for you! Click through for the print. From the artist's statement:
The uncanny similarity in shape between the baseball diamond and the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, which has been pointed out before, is what sparked the idea for this work, but the similarities do not end only in form.
Or, if you want beauty, splendor, strength, and wisdom all in the same picture without buying this thing, you can snap a photo of Erin Andrews doing a standup interview of Albert Pujols and Bill James before an interleague game on some glorious summer evening at Fenway Park. I'll let you guys figure out who represents what.

Nice one (though I usually fail to find anything spiritual about the first-base umpire).
I’ll take my Kibbutz Gezer “Field of Dreams” T-Shirt, though. At least I can wear that to the game.

Albert Pujols is a handsome man.

Madonna is into Kabbalah and acted in a role of a baseball player.
A-Rod is into Madonna and also acts in a role of a baseball player.
Who knew Kabbalh had the answer for A-Rod’s inability to produce in games that matter.

Since Erin Andrews just isn’t THAT hot, I’m guessing Fenway Park is the beautiful part.

Of course, any good Jew knows that the REAL opening to the Torah is “In The Big Inning…”
Sorry. I know it’s bad. Sometimes I can’t resist.

@Jason - Following your logic then we should be playing only/mainly day games as God said “let there be light” and the light good. Which makes you wonder what sin the Cubs committed along the way as they play the most day games (only day games for decades) and still are cursed not to win the WS. They must have really pissed God off because their wilderness has certainly exceeded 40 years.
