Fasting

posted by David Kuo

A year ago I wrote about the need for Christians to take a fast from politics. Tonight I write about my need to take a fast from watching sports. I honestly don’t do it very often – with young kids there just isn’t much time. But I admit to a huge weakness for the Steelers and a pretty huge weakness for the Mets. And today was a thoroughly lousy day on both fronts.
The Mets, as I wrote earlier, just sucked it up. But then my beloved Steelers did the same. It was a cruel, cruel 1-2 punch. I even tried winning at online Risk and lost at that too.
So tonight I pledge a fast from watching sports… and from reading about the Steelers online here or here or here or here or here…for at least the next 24 hours. :-)

Well, one day is something but it shouldn’t be hard to extend your Mets fast until April.

Could be worse, David– at least you don’t have a Mets-themed bar (or bat) mitzvah to attend:

Dancing... or drinking through life
I am not even sure that I know how to do a link anymore. I'm giving it a shot though so, three readers, please forgive me if I mess this up. So Rod Dreher's sister is battling cancer. It is nasty.

Back...
I'm back here at JWalking after a bit of time because I just want someplace to record thoughts from time to time. I doubt that many of the thoughts will be political - there are plenty upon plenty of people offering their opinions on everything political and I doubt that I have much to add that will

Learning to tell a story
For the last ten months or so I've been engaged in a completely different world - the world of screenwriting. It began as a writing project - probably the 21st Century version of a yen to write the great American novel - a shot at a screenplay. I knew that I knew nothing about the art but was inspir

And just one more
I have, I think, just one more round of chemo left. When I go through my pill popping regimen tomorrow morning it will be the last time for this particular round of drugs. Twenty-three rounds, it seems, is enough. What comes next? We'll go back to what we did after the surgery. We'll watch and measu
