Private confession and absolution . . .

will be offered to all those who have even the slightest hint of satisfaction over Michigan State's loss to CMU today.

I'm still in shock.  Can't we play a little defense?  What the heck?  The only thing that will lessen the sickness I feel in my stomach right now is to see the Irish beat Michigan.  But, as satisfying as that would be, I doubt that it will take away the weeping and gnashing of teeth going on in the Messer house today!

On behalf of CMU: SORRY! :-)

Rev. Thomas C. Messer said...

Your apology is welcomed, but not received, since it is obviously not made sincerely. :)

Pastor Bakker said...

Well read - I am not sincere at all, but I am biased. :-)

Tom:

No apologies for the Chippewas' triumph over Sparty. There's only one solution to your sorrow: Party like it's 1991, 1992, or 2009!

Luke,

Whatever, dude!

I guess Notre Dame wasn't pious enough to beat the Wolverines this year. I'm considering getting a blue chasuble (with maize trim) on order for celebrating Advent this year. Of course, my congregation here in Austin is still lobbying to have one of the seasonal colors changed to Burnt Orange. I still think the Spartans will give U-M a great battle this year.
