Rabbi Hillel And The Kansas City Royals



Something for the Sabbath in Kansas City considering the eternal question that confronts our long suffering baseball team which hasn't been blessed with a playoff spot in more than a generation.

A rather BRILLIANT AND KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTER identifies an interesting quote in a recent Kansas City Royals question and headline:

Key question for Royals this season will be ‘If not now, then when?’

The message . . .

Google "if not now when"

We did, and here's what we came up with . . .

The quote dates back to Rabbi Hillel the Elder who said:

"If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, then what am I? And if not now, when?"

Rabbi Hillel was one of the most influential scholars in Jewish history.

The words are inspiring and something to contemplate amid another Kansas City Royals season that once again tests the faith of fans.

Is this the Rabbi that said Glazer was a POS?

Maybe this Rabbi will tell Byron to seek God and stop being a loser

If this year Royals win the World Series, then we all should repent because it is the frigging end of the world

This century the poets mix beats. The notion that Jay Z and Kayne are lazy welfare cheats stims back to urban legend that goes back from Ronald Reagans 1964 campaign.
