Annie Savoy is Episcopalian?

You may remember this great monologue by Susan Sarandon, playing baseball’s ultimate hot mama in 1988’s Bull Durham:

I believe in the Church of Baseball. I’ve tried all the major religions, and most of the minor ones. I’ve worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms, and Isadora Duncan. I know things. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball. When I heard that, I gave Jesus a chance. But it just didn’t work out between us.

Well, apparently, Bud Selig is going to force Annie to hum a few bars of “Jesus is just alright with me”, because the official Church of Baseball is now the Episcopal Church.

The linked article is just an April Fool’s prank, but in all honesty, the Episcopal Church might have a few things Annie would have liked. For instance, the denomination allows women to become priests, and a left-coast nonconformist by the name of Katharine Jefferts Schori is the Presiding Bishop at this time. In addition, the church puts on a welcoming face to all comers, and has even made nice (sort of) with the concepts of gay clergy and same-sex marriage.  Sounds like a platform old Annie might be willing to check out.

You know?  This is crazy enough it just might work…

  2. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips for first-time blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
