    Find that hard to believe. Did you see anyone today while at school or work?

    I never saw it in my life until I got to Omaha about 5 years ago. Didnt notice it at all today. Guess it depends on how many hard core catholics you run into in your daily life.

    Not only Catholics, but members of the Eastern Orthodox churches observe Ash Wednesday as well. Some devout Protestants I know observe this day with an extra long Wednesday service.

    I was about to answer: "Wrinkles?" I forgot it was Ash Wednesday until I read the thread.


    rocks!

    I can't rep this - it's just too much of a mixed metaphor (two different scenes from the movie that have nothing to do with one another).

    Re: Digger Phelps

    When will Digger give up on the whole matching tie/highlighter bit? It was kinda cool at first but now it just seems like he's trying too hard to have his own "thing". You know, like Berman's stupid nicknames, Lou Holtz spitting everywhere, Corso being crazy, Stuart Scott's googly-eye, etc.
