"Here is wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the Beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666." -Revelation 13:18 (New International Version)

Pretty frightening, eh? One of the scariest verses in one of the scariest chapters of the Bible. It describes a time in which a huge beast will emerge from the sea to wreak terror, horror, and misery on God's people, which will lead to weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth. He will commit crimes against humanity. They will feel pain such as that felt by no other people in history.

Much debate has taken place over the identity of this man (or Antichrist, as he is called by many, although Revelation never refers to him as such). Many biblical scholars believe him to be the Emperor Nero. Reformers like Luther and Calvin thought they saw the Pope. Hollywood gave us Rosemary's Baby and Damien. The authors of the "Left Behind" series foresaw a gay Romanian world leader as the guy.

Well, they are all wrong, for there are others among us who know who the Antichrist is, for they have felt the pain and misery that he wrought.

They know that the Antichrist emerged on this night, coming with a smile on his cute face, as was foretold. He was born in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. as Russell Earl O'Dey, but those whom he victimized know him better by the name of the Beast:



BUCKY DENT.



How do they know that Bucky is the Antichrist? Quite simple:

He emerged from a sea(side city).

He was drafted in the first round of the June, 1970 draft, the number SIX pick

He made his major league debut on this night, June 1st, or SIX-one.

He was a shortstop, the number SIX position on the diamond.

And worst of all, he pulled a crime against humanity so heinous, so horrible, so nightmarish that it caused weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth from all of humanity. Or, at the very least, a certain self-absorbed segment of the population. It all fits. ;)

The horror that is Bucky didn't do much this night. He came out in the 7th inning to replace Jorge Orta at 2nd base, not only playing in his first game, but seeing one as well. Bucky is one of a few players who never saw a regular season major league game in person until he played in one. He had better luck in his debut than Brian Downing, managing to finish the game and even get an at-bat.

The Sox and Wilbur Wood lost this one, 5-3. Bucky walked off the field that night smiling, having no clue as to the horrible crime that he would commit five years hence; a crime that would move Boston Red Sox fans to forever speak of their pain to anyone who wanted to hear it (and even if they didn't want to hear it).

On this night, Bucky was just another kid happy to have made it to the major leagues.
