Why don’t we …

The way Lou Piniella saw it Sunday morning, the media were paying entirely too much attention to the Cubs‘ unfortunate lack of hitting.

Why don’t we focus on the positive thing, which is our pitching has
been good?, he said.
Why don’t we talk about pitching?

Why don’t we
talk about some of the good defensive plays that we make and the fact
that these kids are playing hard and they’re trying?
Why don’t we focus
on those things?
Why do we always have to focus on what we’re not doing?

For the same reason no one focuses on a warthog’s exceptional sense of
smell: You can’t help but notice its inability to take a good photo.

I thought the Cubs were on a roll?
After all they managed to take 1 of 3 from the Twins to avoid the sweep by scoring in the bottom of the 9th yesterday.

The same reason why no one talks about the White Sox pitching lately, and only talks about how much they suck at hitting.
What a silly question by Pinella.
Anyhow, we’ll see which team can figure out how to hit the ball here in the next couple days. That or we’re in for a terrible series in Chicago.
Going to the game tomorrow, I’ll root for the White Sox for you.

May someone should consult the Live Psychic Readings link that pops up in my Gmail Reader when I open your blog there. Maybe he/she has the answers for your Cubs. Don’t you love it?

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
