Tim Tebow, John Lennon, and some Cub Jersey Ideas for your Christmas List
Posted 15 November 2011 - 03:10 PM
Religion is a touchy subject. I don't believe in denying anyone their faith if it helps them get through the trials of life. (except for Snake Handlers, I don't trust those turkeys) So please don't view this as a knock on Christianity, I just want to know what it is supposed to mean? John Lennon was crucified(probably another poor word choice) by many in the Christian community for saying that the Beatles were more important than religion to many kids in the 60's. His comments were considered so offfensive, they burned Beatle albums in the streets!( dumbies, they would be worth a pretty penny on Ebay today) Isn't putting the name "Jesus" on the back of a marginally talented( 2-8 69 yards) QB at least a bit offensive?
Enough social commenting, now my connection to the Cubs. What kind of Cub jeresy ideas with alternative names on the back could we make along the same lines? Religious figures, historical figures, nicknames....I would like to hear some suggestions. So I will give just a couple, then feel free to post some, or just completely ignore this post if you are offended, or not entertained by this idea. Warning, some of mine are a bit obscure.
Saint Ronnie #10
Crazy-Eyes Killa #38
Messiah #13(baseball ability only,no religious overtones)
Vanilla Ice (choice of many #'s, too many Cub one-hit wonders to mention)......
