Everyone Murders

A friend of mine got a private audience with Pope John Paul II years ago (his mother was a secretary at the Archdiocese, and was able to get the audience through the Archdiocese).  He had the picture on his mantle, and showed it to me - understandably proud of it.

I told him I had seen it before.  He was puzzled, because it was my first time over to his house.  I told him I had seen it before, but on the Pope's mantle.

Meanwhile, the SEC is attempting to draft legislation which will - once and for all - ban coaches from giving gifts to prominent members of the world's religious communities. 

Except Mike Slive. He's still cool in their estimation.

I am very happy for Coach Harbaugh. I know this meant a lot to him.

I am a religious person, and know that this is also the case for many on the team, and around the team. I really appreciate that the trip to the Vatican and the Pope was optional, and that Harbaugh doesn't proselytize. At the same time, he is open about his beliefs and values, and how important they are to him.

He's met presidents......wow!

Now the Pope!  This is just incredible, not only for him, but the guys on his team and his family.

The Pope is one of a handful of the most important people in the world.....Meeting him with the team in attendance.......it doesn't get much better than this.
