Joe Buck is a renaissance man. He’s a bad football AND baseball announcer.
Not sure if I’m pulling for KC or Toronto. I am sure that I cannot stand Joe Buck. I may have to turn on SAP Spanish feed. #ALCS
The Dodgers lose! The Dodgers lose! The Dodgers lose! #SFGiantsFan
OK Mets. Let’s not play defense like the Rangers did yesterday. #nlds
Sorry #Saints. I’m watching #Mets eliminate the #Dodgers. MLB > NFL
The Rangers are experiencing a meltdown in the ninth-inning
That’s not very Christian what TCU is doing to the #Longhorns.
A priest was on television talking about Pope Francis’ universal appeal. He is beloved by Catholics, non-Catholics, non-religious, etc. because his message of social and economic justice. Peace, love, mercy, forgiveness, helping the poor, and non-judgement of others is what he encourages. The priest said this has caused many lapsed Catholics to want to check out the church again.
Unfortunately when they go, they hear the same old, same old about the church’s stand against contraception, against married priest, against women priest, against reproductive choice, and against marriage equality. The priest said these people walk out and never come back. He said that the Pope’s message of love and compassion has to filter down to the local level.
That priest hit the nail on the head. I love Pope Francis and his message, but will stay lapsed.

As the political season begins to ramp up, I dread the deep ideological divide that exists in our country. I’m very passionate about my beliefs and opinions. That doesn’t mean we can’t get along and still be friends. Right? Peace and love!
(Unless you are Dick Cheney. I hate that guy! 😉)
