    But Gretzky scores on the rebound!
     
  3. Is Vatican City big enough for a full pitch?

    Vatican ultras represent!

    We kill in the name of Jesus!

    All I know is, when I put money in the collection plate, it needs to go to Leeds United.

    In all fairness, it's Esposito scores on the rebound.

    Are you saying Jesus Christ can't hit a curve ball?

    All right, Harris. Let's not start a holy war here.
     
  8. I like him...very much.
     
  9. Vatican City is its own country.

    I've long believed that Vatican City could field a very competitive Olympic team. Basically anyone who is Catholic from any country could represent Vatican City in the games. How often do you see stories about somebody winning a medal because the person who made the team in front of them couldn't make it due to injury or someother reason. The Vatican could scoop up all the Catholic almost-made-the-team athletes and field a competitive team. Heck - imagine the recruiting drive they could do just at Jesuit colleges in the US.

    At the very least the Vatican would win more medals than Ireland.
     
  10. Chris -
    My understanding is that the only "citizens" of Vatican City are the people who work int he Vatican, and that you lose your citizenship if and when you leave your job. But, hey, if you want to stock the Congregation For The Proagation of the Faith with point guards and team handball players, I'm with you.
    No-show jobs for jocks -- It's not just for college any more.

    This has potential: "It's not just for college. It's for the college of cardinals, too."
     
  12. Is the College Of Cardinals considered a mid-major?
    Will they be playing the College of Musical Knowledge on Bracket Buster Sunday?
