View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

We Lose - Yay!

To tell you how much of a Bills fan I am, I was hoping they would play an ugly game today and lose - and they did!

3-6 - Whoopee! Way to go Cleveland!

Now before you think I'm crazy - okay, crazier than you suspected - I wanted the Bills to lose so maybe the owner would FINALLY fire the coach. That's the only way I can see them improving this year.

Now, there's hope.

Is it sacrilegious to say a novena to get someone fired?

(I'm sure he's a nice guy and all, but he needs to get a job as an insurance salesman, or something similar).

On a more serious note, Boston was eliminated from the baseball playoffs. Sigh. I need to spend more time reading my Franciscan formation materials anyway.

When does Syracuse University basketball start?

Excellent post.

I will not comment on the Bills for fear that this comment will transform into a profanity-laced tirade.

The Bengals are 4-1, and my son caught the game-winning touchdown for his sixth grade football team today. All in all, a good sports weekend. ;-)

Are you saying that Boston losing ... is a good thing?!

Lee,

From the late 70s to the mid-80s, my father and I watched virtually every Yankee game televised in Rochester. He'd make a big bag of popcorn on the range "old school"-style, and we'd listen to Phil Rizzuto call the plays. "Holy Cow!" They are cherished memories.

Bumming about the Sox. Just too much of a Sox/ Mets fan to cheer for the Yankees. I guess baseball is over for me this year.

That's okay, Rich. Some time in Purgatory will help to clear up that idolatry - if you genuinely repent!

RailRider - you could root for any team that's against the Yankees. Or maybe root for the Dodgers so that Torre can whup them!

I'm not sure Ralph's got it in him to fire Dick - I sometimes think I am watching a re-run of "Weekend at Bernie's" when I see him...I am constantly looking to see if someone is propping him up.

Anyway, I hoped they would win, just 'cause, but since they didn't, even though it won't amount to a hill of beans this season, fire the bum. Should'a happened in March.

Normally I would cheer for "anyone but the Yankees," but root for Manny???! I dunno, man.

Railrider - okay, Manny gives one pause ... but when you put Manny vs the Yankees on the scales, well ...
