Margeaux, Margeaux, Marrrrrgeau(oooooooh)x - how in the hell do you root for a team NOT from the city in which you last lived? Your text message confused me...

PS - I made your name look like an algebra equation.


Oh! and everyone needs to watch Jesus Camp - a scary but true account of Pentecostals in America and after you watch you'll understand why I don't go to church unless somebody is getting hitched or has died. My dad's extended family is Pentecostal only they are SERIOUSLY Pentacostal and don't cut women's hair or wear make-up or watch tv. The group in the movie are most likely Charismatic which believe everything that the Pentecosts do except Charismatic women can cut there hair and wear pants. As a young adult my dad and I discussed our beliefs, I expressed my hesitation about the Pentecostal church, he, who didn't step foot in a church past the age of 16 save his wedding, defensively told me "I sent you to church with your Aunt b/c I thought GIRLS liked church" Thanks Dad, I'll send you the therapy bill!

I mean this seriously, thank goodness for my Jesuit education in college for restoring my belief in man's ability to approach God in a rationale manner. I'm agnostic, but if I had to be anything, I'd be a Jesuit or an Episcopalian. I have often felt envy for people with a faith, I feel that having a context in which to grieve must be a very comforting thing indeed.

Sorry to get all philosophical and shit!

I may have lived in the best city ever - Chicago - for one year. And, while I will cheer for the Cubs, I will NEVER cheer for the Bears. Go Packers!!! Long live Brett Favre!!

Also, I'm totally with you on the religion front - about having a context in which to grieve. And I'm glad you aren't pentecostal. If you started speaking in tongues I'd never be able to understand you and then we couldn't be friends. That and the whole not cutting your hair thing. Speaking of which - did anybody see the girl on American Idol - I think it was in Birmingham - who had hair that was 6 FEET LONG! It was NASTY! She needs to cut that stuff. So does her mom. Hmmm....maybe they were pentecostal.

WOW it actually all comes down to this:

Bill Swerski: Da question is: Now, did God create Da Bears, and make them superior to all teams? Or is he simply a huge fan, and Ditka made them superior to all other teams?

Carl Wollarski: That's a tough one.

...[lots of bratwurst talk]...

Bill Swerski: Alright, now let's get back to our discussion. Bears vs. the Assembled Choir of Heavenly Angels.

Pat Arnold: The whole choir?

Bill Swerski: Well, Saraphone, Jerebone - the whole nine yards.

Pat Arnold: Angels.

Carl Wollarski: Angels, but it's close.

Todd O'Conner: Bears!

Bill Swerski: Alright. Ditka vs. God in a golf match. Now, he's a good golfer.

Pat Arnold: Ditka.

Todd O'Conner: Dit-ka!

Carl Wollarski: Ditka.

So in conclusion,

a) I've never been to chicago but I like TV

and

b) The Colts should have never been in the super bowl in the first place since because if Tom Brady DOESN'T play in the super bowl and gets back into Heaven with Ben Affleck then God/Alanis is wrong and She cannot be infallible and the world ends. Therefore rooting for the Colts is like dividing by 0.

darcy - the only reason i get your obscure pop culture reference this time, is i am strangely drawn to that movie and seem to have to watch it every time it's on tbs or what have you. I think i may have a girl crush on alanis. hmm, will get back to you on that one.
