Stranger thoughts yet

Notre Dame football player Sam Young was asked who he would like to be, if he couldn't be himself. His first answer was Tiger Woods. His second answer:

"And then Jesus. Jesus would be nice. It's Easter. Why not? I want to know the big answers. Heck, why not, right."

Uh, here's why not, Sam. It's Easter. Before you get around to that resurrection, sitting at the right hand of God stuff, there is: betrayal, beating, flogging, crown of thorns, nails through the hands, nails through the feet, with a spear through the side just for luck. Plus, according to some theologians, the whole redemption thing required a business-only trip to Hell with no inflight movie. Sure you're up for that?
