Most likely owing to the start time, Catholics in Milawaukee are not quite as bent out of shape about the Brewers’ Good Friday home opener as those in Detroit, but in some ways their suggestions as to how to properly combine baseball and religion are even more extreme:
Milwaukee’s soon-to-be-departing, but still current Catholic Archbishop has put the hammer down on Catholics hoping to enjoy a brat during the Brewers’ home opener, because it happens to fall on Good Friday.
Dolan says Catholics attending the home opener, or just with baseball fever for the Good Friday, April 10th game against the Chicago Cubs, still ought to abstain from meat and poultry.
“I think instead of eating the sausages or hot dogs that day, they just should say a prayer for the Brewers success this season,” said Dolan.
Which is the greater sin: eating meat on Good Friday or not eating brats at Miller Park?
