Marlin Manager Gives Thanks at the Latin Mass on Sunday

Thanks to Steve M. who comments below:

I was at the game on Saturday night with my son (also a Michael), and missed everything after the tag on Posada for the final out. But on my way to St. Agnes Church in Manhattan the next day, I passed Jack McKeon smoking a cigar as he stood on 42nd St. ouside the Grand Hyatt. Thanks to Mayor Blooberg's smoking ban, I got a chance to shake his had and congratulate him---he had a warm \"thank you\" in reply. An hour later, as I recounted on Amy's blog, I saw him at the Traditional Latin Mass at St. Agnes. Apparently he will sometimes take in a good Gregorian chat after a good victory smoke. Running into him was consoling, which may have been my guardian angel's idea in having me be at the right place for these two encounters.
