But for some of us, today marks a truly religious holiday: the first day of the baseball season. While tomorrow is opening day for most teams, the season starts tonight with the Yankees (Boo!) playing the Red Sox.
I am a believer in the words of Susan Sarandon from the movie Bull Durham that "The only church that truly feeds the soul, day in, day out, is the Church of Baseball." So today is a holiday for me, and I'll be celebrating with the traditional sacrament: beer. Cheers!
And please don't harangue me about the scandals in my church. At least we're not Catholic priests.
