During jury duty in Dec, I got tired of two Gonzaga graduates who used their Jesuit training to endlessly quibble about unimportant points. The jury could have finished a day earlier if these two dudes hadn't been grinding logic into sawdust. And when they weren't debating the case, they were debating football with the same volume and casuistry.
I formed the undoubtedly unfair stereotype that football substitutes for sex in Roman brains.
Listening today to an interesting conversation about Benedictine traditions on local EWTN station. Deep understanding of frugality in all things, which I deeply appreciate. One of the monks was telling his vision of heaven .... "I'm focusing on the part of Genesis where God is walking with Adam and Eve in the cool of the evening, discussing whatever needs to be discussed. In modern times what might God discuss with us? Probably the Seahawks."
Well. Not an unfair stereotype after all.
Might even be an example of 'prophetic hearing' by the monk. If God (as transduced by the monk) has a NY accent, the subject he was actually discussing
with Adam and Eve would sound a lot like Seahawks.
