Dee Gordon's Home Run Explained

Last night Dee Gordon hit a leadoff home run, a rocket that shot through the night into right center field and stunned the crowd. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. Now we have an explanation:

Mars, Earth, and the Sun all aligned last night, a rare 'opposition of the planets' that only happens once every 778 days.

But what made this event so remarkable is that it occured precisely a week before everyone on earth will see the first of FOUR dark red 'blood moons', an extraordinary event some Christians believe represents the End of Days and the second coming of Christ.

The King James Bible predicts: "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD comes," [Joel 2:31].

And, according to NASA, a highly unusual 'Tetrad' - four successive total 'blood-red' lunar eclipses each followed by six full moons - will, indeed, start next Tuesday and finish on September 28 2015.

The incredible alignment has only happened a handful of times in the last two thousand years but, remarkably, on each of the last three occasions it has coincided with a globally significant religious event.
Let's get some more games in before the universe as we know it is gone.

Do tell. What were these, please? And how many equally "significant" religious events took place took place at other, non-blood-moon times during the same period, I wonder.

I found an article that says what the last 3 globally significant religious events were.

Would an off-day puzzle from Stubbs be considered a globally significant event

Wow, this explains a lot, about a lot of things.

Watching the highlights this morning, it looked like the park was still full... in the 10th inning!!!

That's just bizarro.

Joel was a bible dude?

Sounds more like the name of a game show host

@DBT I can report that the stadium was still pretty damn full up through the walk-off hit. I for one was there until the last bloody moment.
