As Long As There Are Playoffs, There Will Be Prayer in Sports

I always laugh when someone says 'As long as there are tests there will be prayer in public schools' because its so true. I think the same can be said of sports and playoffs.

I know Bobby Jenks has brought me to prayer more than just a few times this season.

To show how old I am,--I lost all interest in baseball when they (I hate change!) added so many new franchisee. I loved eight tems in each of two leagues, National and American...

So, "Pray on!"

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
