Who owns the stadium? If it is the city or the state, somebody will more than likley get sued. There was a lawsuit aimed at the Hagerstown Suns a few years back for offering a promotion providing discounted admission on Sundays to those who brough a chruch bulletin. An atheist sued and won.



"If we will keep closing our eyes to evil, then that evil will defeat us tomorrow. Unfortunately there's more hatred in men than love. Those who murder understand only force and nothing else. And the only force that is able to stand against them is the American democracy."- Marek Edelman, last surviving leader of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising

"The Geneva Conventions are so outdated and are written so broadly that they have become a sword used by terrorists to kill civilians, rather than a shield to protect civilians from terrorists. These international laws have become part of the problem, rather than part of the solution."- Alan Dershowitz

If this is a big hit, their next step should be to give away those inspirational Jesus/Sports figurines from Conan O'Brien.

This is plain tacky, in every sense of the word. The bobbleheaded Biblical figures are tacky, giving them out at a baseball game is tacky, and even the notion of Faith Night is beyond tacky.

As a person who regularly questions his own faith, at my priest's suggestion (after all, if you don't question, you won't get answers), I'm having an even harder time than ever taking religion seriously. Jesus isn't a celebrity, scripture doesn't go on a bumper sticker, and Samson, Moses, and Noah don't get damn bobbleheads. Rallies, or even a Faith Night, aren't necessary to show that the Almighty has your attention either.

I was THAT close to buying the football one as a father's day present, but it would violate my "never spend more than $15 on a gag gift" rule. :)

This week's SI has an item about a minor league team in Massachusetts having a Grady Little bobblearm doll night. His arm motions back-and-forth like he's waving in a new pitcher from the bullpen, which of course he didn't do in Game 7 last year.

I thought it was pretty funny, and this only insults Grady Little as opposed to God.

Catholicshopper.com is freaking hilarious. Thanks, guys. I suppose one of those kids in the football statue will burn in hell for tackling Jesus. And JC looks a little TOO chummy with the girl in the golf statue.

Minor League baseball is full of classless or worthless promos. There was the highly publicized "Steroid Night", last month. You got in free if you said you were Ken Caminiti, Jose Canseco or Lyle Alzado. Last year, a team retired Pete Rose's number... when Rose had no connection to the team, organization or geographic area. Two years back, someone had the "Lowest attendance record". They played the game in an empty stadium. When it was official, they opened the gates and let the fans in. You could say "it's bush league crap"...but that's EXACTLY what it is.

Stick to your free calendars, bucket hats, bats, or 2 for 1 Denny's coupons. Leave the stupid gimmicks to wrestling.

What the heck is that kid thinking?! You cant arm tackle Jesus, you gotta wrap him up if you have any hope of taking him down!

"You can't arm tackle Jesus" is one of the best lines I've seen on the board in a long time. I may steal that for use in everyday conversation.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

Annnnd there went Code Red all over the monitor.

But... tasteless ideas, well considering the team name is one of the lamest I've heard of (The SOUNDS... looks like their crappy ideas are just sorta overall consistent) it's no surprise this thing crops up.

And now I have images of Bobblehead Mordecai in my head.

As for me, myself, personally... I don't allow other people's bizarre ways of showing their faith (or scamming the public, which is sometimes the same thing, unfortunately) affect my faith at all. Let other people break out the Moses bobbleheads, Joseph pencil sharpeners and Jesus monster trucks all they want. It's a free country, and they can do that. If they're honestly doing it to scam the public, well, I'll let God worry about that. I'll exercise my right to devote the fewest number of brain cells possible to these clowns.

Slapping "Jesus" in the head when the urge to see His head nod up and down....doesn't that just scream "ETERNAL DAMNATION IN THE FIERY PITS OF HELL"?



"I'm very sorry the government taxes their tips, that's fucked up. That ain't my fault. It would seem to me that waitresses are one of the many groups the government fucks in the ass on a regular basis. Look, if you ask me to sign something that says the government shouldn't do that, I'll sign it, put it to a vote, I'll vote for it, but what I won't do is play ball. And as for this non-college bullshit I got two words for that: learn to fuckin' type, 'cause if you're expecting me to help out with the rent you're in for a big fuckin' surprise."
