    Old Guard pitchers advance the Yankees back to World Series.

    After being suspended on Saturday night because of hefty rain, Game 6 was finally pushed through on Sunday night in the Bronx, New York.

    The Yankees may have lost Game 3 of the series with Pettitte as their starter, but Dandy Andy presented himself in the mound in Game 6 with confidence and results that speak of his possible legend.

    The 36-year old pitcher only allowed one walk, of which Howie Kendrick was the recipient. It was after Vladimir Guerrero hit an RBI, which he grounded off first in the second inning. Guerrero's move was considered to be a wrong move; obviously.

    The Angels have committed a lot of mistakes during the series, some of which were not even part of their accumulated 8 error record in the ALCS. Some of those errors even helped the Yankees reach homeplate.

    One easy and unwonted out happened during the sixth inning. Chone Figgins, after bunting Pettitte's 89 MPH fastball, grounded out to catcher Jorge Posada. He was out for tagging himself as he ran to first base. His left foot touched the ball.

    In the same sixth inning, the Angels might've had a run when Vladimir Guerrero's double RBI advanced Torii Hunter to third base. The centre fielder's speed has been a concern to the Bombers. With two out, Mr. Iron Gaze saved the inning when Kendrick Morales hit the ball back to him for the third out.

    With long time teammate Jorge Posada catching behind the plate, the left-handed pitcher struck out six Angels in 6.1 innings before Manager Joe Torre climbed to the hill. The man in the mound knew what was coming.

    Pettitte may have wanted to stay longer, a lot of the fans wanted too, but he yielded to his former teammate's call and left his throne with 99 pitches and a 2.84 ERA.

    The post-season veteran pitcher allowed seven hits and only had one run. The Yankee fans gave Pettitte a standing ovation while the Old Guard starting pitcher tipped his cap in recognition of the fans as he retired to the dugout.

    Joba relieved for him, pitching against two Halos. He grounded out both to end the top of the seventh inning, but that was all for him. Joe Girardi already had plans for the eight and ninth inning.

    The Sandman left the Yankee bullpen radiating assurance to the Yankees and at the same time threat to the Angels. "I knew I was going to be there for at least two," said Rivera who was called in the top of the eight.

    Mariano Rivera is one of those pitchers you don't want to face when you're in the batter's box.

    "Man, I don't even want to talk about Mariano Rivera right now," Torii Hunter said. "You don't want to face him. I don't plan on getting to him. If we do, the game is probably in the bag."

    Chone Figgins was fortunate to hit an RBI on one ball - one strike count against Mariano Rivera. He was not the only blessed Angel of the night. With two outs, Figgins scored on Vladimir Guerrero's RBI giving the Angels their second and last run. It was the first post-season run given up by Mariano Rivera at home since Game 2 of the 2000 World Series against the Mets.

    In the top of the ninth inning with two out, and just one more for the final one, Gary Matthews Jr. was pinch hitting for catcher Mike Napoli. It was an offensive move but obviously didn't work. Matthews, Jr. struckout swinging for the final out of the series. The pitch was not even a cutter.

    Mariano Rivera secured the World Series ticket his Old Guard buddy Andy Pettitte clutched for the Yankees.

    The Bombers earned three runs in the fourth inning from Robinson Cano and Nick Swisher on Johnny Damon's RBI and from Derek Jeter who had to step on homeplate to give way for A-Rod who was walked with bases loaded.

    They had another runs in the eight inning from Robinson Cano on Melky Cabrera's sacrifice bunt, which he earned as double on throwing error by Scott Kazmir, and from Brett Gardner on Mark Teixeira's sacrifice fly to centre field.

    The New York Yankees defeated the Los Angeles Angels on 5-2 in Game 6 of the American League Championship Series. The Bronx Bombers will represent the American League in the World Series to face the defending champions Philadelphia Phillies of the National League on Wednesday night in Yankee Stadium.

    Character encompasses time.

    I wonder if someone else had already said that, but that just came to me after reading some articles about someone who died years ago. I've never met the man. I don't even know what he looked like. But it doesn't matter. What does is his legacy.

    I believe I will not forget his name. I will not mention it here, though. Only God knows that I am a follower of this man. Perhaps someone else will be able to figure it out, but it won't matter.

    A friend of mine once told me in high school that I am very patient, that I don't get angry. But other people think I am a choleric person. Ironic? Everyone is entitled to their opinion. That's how they saw me, and I care not.

    In defense of my friend who thinks of me as very patient, I'd say she was right. I still am. She just saw me that way because she is a just person. Whenever I am around her, or when we are together, justice is always sought. As a result, I am at peace. For the one thing that is quick to move me into eruption of anger is injustice.

    Justice and injustice are my choice of words, but both may sound so serious. Sometimes, I'm just talking about (simple) fairness and unfairness. So there it goes, but I'd still use the more serious sounding words. Because I hate anything unfair.

    For those who thought of me as very choleric, they were also right. And I still am. Perhaps it was simply because they tolerate injustice, or unjust themselves. Tolerance of evil also makes me go berserk, especially if it is done by those who abuse their positions. There are many forms of injustice, or unfairness, but they all upset me.

    Though I am very upset, I am silent most of the time. At least I try to. I first restore my logical sense then think of how should I react properly.

    There are times that I myself become unjust by simply tolerating some bad deeds, even just by laughing some (bad) things off. I am not happy for having done so. As a resolution, I try my best to be conscious on how I react about some things.

    More than what the law or moral standards state, I make sure that the justice I am upholding roots from God, from His holy Word.

    I've been trying to find out where and when my sense of justice began its roots but I still couldn't find the answer. As for now, I thank God for the gift. Knowledge of justice and exercising them, with or without audience, are gifts from the Lord. At the end of the day, and when the day comes should I leave this earth, I will be accountable to God.

    I may not be part of the judicial system of my country, but I belong to the health care system. A lot of injustice happen in this almost forgotten system so I pray to God that albeit the deficiencies of the system, I will not use them as excuse to be unjust.

    As a nurse, I am a patient's advocate, of his rights and of his health. I will do my best to live by the principles of the title I hold and keep the integrity of the justice I believe in.

    Justice must be served. I always think of it, even when I ride a jeepney because a lot of the usual spots where commuters load and unload are posted with "No Loading and Unloading," which is annoying. But still, I have to obey simple rules.

    May the Lord bless everyone who loves justice.

    Long for a hair cut..

    I want to cut my hair, not just for an inch or two but more. I feel like having a short hair, like that of Natalie Imbruglia in her Wishing I Was There music video.

    My friend and me are planning to make a "community" blog where we can post our thoughts, insights, and the like, about our community, country, the world, and any issues that we are concern about. Yes, that includes sports and food. The problem is the blog host. I am not sure which one is the best place to have one. I've just started thinking for one, though.

    I am trying to reckon Blogspot because it is a common place where intellectual writers write. It'd be easy for us to post comments to other peoples' blogs and/or articles, and vice versa. I'll ask my friend about this. I hope it'll be done soon. I've already written an "article" but it still needs editing. I am not even sure what title should I give it.

    On the other hand, I am still not sure whether I'd go back to ALS and help them. Seriously, I feel embarrassed being there for days. I do want to help, though. That's all I want to do. I want to help the victims, in any way I could, and I also want to help those who volunteers, because classes are back and they'll be busy.

    Oh God, please help me. You know, Lord, what I ask.

    I had a dream about someone and we had a conversation about what had happened and what our state it. Funny how it has to be in my dream. But still, I want to thank God for it.
