saturday song: yankees advance to ALCS edition

it's saturday song time, and since the yankees (finally) eliminated the very respectable baltimore orioles* last evening, and are now moving on to the ALCS against the detroit tigers, i thought we could use a yankees song this morning.  well, i don't know if this is a yankees song per se, but it is a song that is played at the stadium in the bronx, and it is full of some great yankee footage, and is a fun watch. 

so the alcs starts tonight, which means my stomach ulcers will be as angry as ever, without any chance to heal.  oh well, it is so fun to watch october baseball, and i'm looking forward to see what happens.  go yanks!

*just a note on the orioles (who my sons call "the oreos"): what a season!  not many expected them to be a force through the whole year, and even though they faded for a bit, they stayed the course and finished strong, and were a formidable force in the playoffs.  while the series didn't have the same disdain that a yankees/red sox series would, what it did have was some very good baseball by two very good teams.  i know it is a painful ending for the orioles, but i want to congratulate them on an amazing season, and say that i believe they will be a force to be reckoned with next year, as well.

i will give you a new name

in our church, we are continuing with a series called "letters from Jesus," in which we are looking at the seven letters in the beginning of revelation addressed to seven churches in asia.  we are imagining what it would be like if we were to receive a hand-written letter from Jesus to our church.  what would it say?  how would we be encouraged?  how would we be challenged?  we've looked at three of the letters now.  this week we looked at the letter to the church in pergamum.  the letter to them includes some harsh criticism of some of their behavior, but it also says that Christ understands how difficult their situation is.  and in case they feel like they are stuck in their sinfulness, Jesus says something amazing to them:  i will give you a new name.  the world gives us so many names, doesn't it?  our parents, of course, give us our birth names.  but the naming doesn't stop there.  it continues right on through elementary school, high school, and into t

Milinovich Family Christmas, 2019

merry Christmas, yinz guys.  we've been marking our advent journeys with an annual video now for the last twelve years!  for this latest installment, we used the Tractors' version of "Run, Run Rudolph," as a metaphor for all of our running around, and i hope it shows that we've had a real blast this year, preparing for Christmas.  you'll see scenes from getting our tree, making cookies, concerts, impromptu dance sessions, making snowflakes, and much more.  enjoy. 

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day.
