    The Catholics allow that? Heck, the Baptists won't allow Sunday or Wednesday games around here.

    Christ also was Jewish. Jews believe touching the skin of a dead pig is unholy. How do the Catholics reconcile this with football?

    Good for them, but it won't stop the non-CYO teams.

    Youth sports has taken over our culture in the worst ways. It bleeds into everything - Sundays, holidays, every single day. And even briefly opting out - in favor of family time or, heaven forbid, a vacation - is seen as a lack of commitment.

    It's commitment creep. Happens in work, too. I saw a tweet from recruiting reporter (of course) who was boasting that his colleague looks at a mere weekend as vacation. Like these are guys are all in Boiler Room or Glengarry Glen Ross or something, working 90 hours a week. If you're going to work 90, for God's sake, be a broker who makes a shitload of money at least.

    The only prep calls we EVER got on Sunday were from Catholic schools
    The Catholic League also staged football playoffs on Sundays

    Christ fulfilled the old law. It's the same reason why Christians don't have animal sacrifice. There's no need. Christians live by faith, not by law.

    ... yet they have zero problem running home from church in time for kickoff for the NFL game ...

    I've never worked in a place that had Sunday preps. Lone exception was last fall's Central Coast Section cross country championships, which had to change location due to the Northstate fires.

    The LDS kids on my son's club soccer teams never played on Sunday. Put us in a pinch sometimes because club soccer always plays on Sunday.

    As I pass a packed little league on my way home from church every Sunday, I wonder how many of them are up for 8 am services? I also wonder how many of them fight same-sex marriages but have not been inside a church, outside of a holiday, in a decade?
