I just got this news from August Berkshire of Minnesota Atheists, about the upcoming godless cooption of a local baseball team:
Our baseball game is exploding in the news! I got a call today from someone in Massachusetts who wants a jersey!
• This morning (July 12) Heather heard them talking about it on K-TWIN radio 96.3 FM. They couldn’t believe it and were skeptical that the Saints would go through with it.
• “75 years of Spam; Ice cold beer here (TCF); Godless Saints” – Minnesota Public Radio
(With a reference and link to our Meetup page!)
• “Minor league Saints hosting night for atheists” – Fox Sports North
(With a picture of the jersey!)
• “Leave your God at home, it’s atheism night at the ballpark” – NBCSports.com
(With a link to the Fox Sports North article. Also some great comments from readers.)
I was really surprised at that last one: he’s right, the comments aren’t the usual shrieking Christian hysterics, and are actually fairly positive. It may be because the only people bothering to read about Minnesota sports have already lost all faith in a god.
