->When I was a kid, my ''abuelita'' would drag me to Christmas Eve mass at her Catholic church and it was at one of those masses where I learned the important skill of sleeping with my eyes open. Shit was boring. What those Christmas Eve masses really needed was [[BadassPreacher a yodeling priest on wheels]]...Diocese of San Pablo suspended Rev. Albert and released a statement where they threw holy water at his ass for being so disrespecting the church. So yeah, when it comes to child touching, the Catholic church is like, ''“err, nothing to see here, move along,”'' but when it comes to a priest singing on a death trap, they’re like, ''[[SkewedPriorities “SANTO DIOS! Condemn his ass!”]]''

->It is foolish and childish, on the face of it, to affiliate ourselves with anything so insignificant and patently contrived and commercially exploitative as a professional sports team, and the amused superiority and icy scorn that the non-fan directs at the sports nut (I know this look--I know it by heart) is understandable and almost unanswerable. Almost. What is left out of this calculation, it seems to me, is the business of caring--caring deeply and passionately, really ''caring''--which is a capacity or an emotion that has almost gone out of our lives. And so it seems possible that we have to a time when it no longer matters so much what the caring is about, how frail or foolish is the object of that concern, as long as the feeling itself can be saved. Naïveté--the infantile and ignoble joy that sends a grown man or woman to dancing and shouting with joy in the middle of the night over the haphazardous flight of a distant ball--seems a small price to pay for such a gift.
