All those naysayers before the game that said the messiah had not come to save the day were wrong.
If they were right, and it looks like they WEREN'T, they are going to have a hard time arguing with the thousands/millions of disciples that there are now.
Jay Bruce did come up and with a loud crack heard from Cincinnati to Jerusalem, after going 3-for-3 with two walks, a stolen base and two RBI, in his MLB debut.
Thousands of his disciples pined to kiss the saviors feet after the game, but were denied as a shaving cream pie greeted his face instead.
The irony of that is that Bruce, although GREAT in every detail of human existence, is so young that might have been the first time shaving cream has graced his face.
No, but really Bruce came up in the 1st and drew a walk. In the 5th Bruce walked again before scoring on a meaningful Adam Dunn home run. In the 6th Bruce came up and got an opposite field single knocking in his first RBI. In the 7th Bruce doubled in another RBI.
At the advent of the near-homer, the crowd of 17,964 cheered:"Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce! Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce!"
I'm sure he liked it.
