As a deeply attached Green Bay fan, I welcomed Marie's post because it
reminded me that I'd never gone to a game in my 20 years in Wisconsin --
and that I have almost never taken TV religion as a substitute for
in-church worship (midnight Mass from the Vatican is tempting because
of the world-wide "congregation").
Is it too facile to call to mind "bread and circuses" when so many don't
have bread -- are lotteries and TV sports a similar dual sop?
No wonder there's a resurgence of spirit, even if we disagree about the
function and location of the Catacombs. -----Emily Hartigan
