Tricksters and Angels...entities that span the rim between the human matrix and the other some say, nether, world. The Merry Tricksters hail from Merryland and are therefore related in kind and theme to the Middleleague Pranktown Busriders (Pranktown being the provincial seat of Merryland.) The Angels, of course, hail from Heaven and are therefore related to the Cosmic Biblicals. (The Biblicals are a veteran, albeit wanderlusting, cosmic baseball team.)
Angels are associated with religion. Tricksters are associated with magic. Both conjure up images of the supernatural, the unseen, the over and the under worlds. The terms "guardian angel" and "lunatic trickster" suggest which good/bad pole contemporary opinion holds each type. Tricksters are likely to be associated with fallen angels (demons) and alchemists. Angels, like the cherubim and seraphim, connote softer, kinder, gentler spirits.
On the cosmic field of play, tricksters and angels are united in form and purpose. They are cosmic baseball players programmed with one desire, one purpose: to win a cosmic baseball game.
In this regard, and in this particular game, the Tricksters reign supreme. An heroic, extra-inning smash by the Hebrew Trickster Gimpel won the day and the game for the visiting Tricksters.
