I’m drafting my rotisserie-league baseball team today, after last year’s heartbreak. If I weren’t re-acquainting myself with the worthwhile players in the American League, I’d be explaining why I was thinking about rhetorical questions and burying your lede; but that will have to wait. Worst comes to worst, I kept Johan Santana and Travis Hafner from last year’s team, so my roster won’t be a total washout.
Hi Prof. Adam,
I’ve started a rotisserie team too – one of the Yahoo sports leagues. After four wonderful days where I was second in my league, now I’m seventh. Hope springs eternal, I suppose, but my pitchers better get their acts together! ‘Course, I wish it were an NL league, but Yahoo makes us include all of baseball. Yuch. The DL is evil.
Anyway, The Lord is Risen Indeed!
It snowed here on Easter. Not much accumulation, but enough blowing around that it made for some poor visibility at times.
I was tempted to say something from the pulpit like ‘And Jesus came out of His tomb, saw His shadow, and foretold of 6 more weeks of winter.'”
Didn’t actually say it, but was tempted.
Shared said temptation with some friends in the congregation who said “Yeah, *we* would have laughed, but surely someone would have thought it was in poor taste.”
And they probably would have been correct.
