Remind me what is on that date.
ביום עשתי עשר יום

Was mentioned quite a few times on DDF. I just found a link to the original recording here. And English translation is available here.

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Skimed..
Is that regular english for skimmed?  ;)

In any event, I suggest you delve into it a little deeper. There's a reason it has been referred to quite a few times on DDF.

Do miracles really happen?

"No. 11 Loyola's unbelievable run with Sister Jean at the spiritual helm, there's been no shortage of surprises this year."

Why cant they just be a team on a good run? Why the need to attribute it to miracles or Sister Jean? Are people so desperate for comfort from their miserable lives that they need to see miracles in a basketball game?

By extension, was Cinderella a miracle story? Disney sure aint anywhere near my version of a deity.

Miracles can't happen in sports. Is there a list somewhere where miracles are only acceptable?

The way I understand miracles, they're kind of reserved for real life issues, not to make sports fanatics' dreams come true.

That's an interesting take on miracles.

Unless you are referring to coincidence or happenstance as miracles, this wining streak, from a religious perspective really has no place in the realm of miracles.

what if some person is so desperate in his life and is about to give up. bet all his money on them as one last shot... Is that a real life issue?

For sure, but not one that requires a miracle. That requires an interventions. I may know someone who can help with that.
