In a comment to another Turkey post, the Egg Man alerted me to the notion that we soon will be able to pray to John Madden when our favorite team is in trouble, because the Roman Catholic Church has taken the first step toward elevating the venerable (and now retired) football coach and announcer to sainthood. This being April, I was cynical about the whole thing, but upon checking the article’s dateline, I found that it was not April 1. This, then, is for real. Read about it here.
A small shrine should be placed by the T.V. and a candle lit before each game, a version with a battery operated light for in the stadium…. both soon to be available at Ace Hardware.
The Nittany Turkey says
The shrine should obviously include a can of Tinactin to guard against the agony of de feet.
Patron saint of football and athletes foot….who knew?
