Baseball Over Here

Between Scylla and CharybdisMost 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.
Which is the greater sin: eating meat on Good Friday or not eating brats at Miller Park?

Lack of editorial control, I think.

I don’t think that’s it. It seems like someone just wanted to argue about something. I just don’t see what there is to fight about with this post. Someone asked the Archbishop a question, and he answered. Was it the little joke at the end? If so wow, talk about making a mountain out of a molehill.

Wow. I think I’ve lost about twelve IQ points reading a particular poster’s comments. Love it!

here and i thought that craig himself is catholic
and that is real interesting about viagra being for rich republican neocons who use it to get off on murdering arabs. i thought they would want to use it for getting off on their sexual partners but hey, learn something new every day
here and i thought it was for old guys of ANY persuasion who got trouble because of blood pressure and/or prostate and/or sugar diabetes and/or fatness
it is a big relief to find out that poor democrat guys with all them medical problems can’t get ED.
it is TRULY amazing what i can learn on a baseball board

I’m a Catholic in Milwaukee and have decided that Opening Day wins out over Good Friday. I talked to Jesus and we agreed that I’ll just avoid meat on Thursday and everything will be a wash. It’s a good thing Dolan is on his way out because I don’t think he’d like it that I went over his head for this decision.

Hey Craig, why don’t you stick to baseball and leave the religious mockery to Bill Maher, ok?

Gosh, and here I thought the title was a Morganna the Kissing Bandit reference (that’s not her nickname for her “endowments?”).
Must say you were far nicer to the dorknozzle than he deserved.
