Bishball Scoring

Here's one idea on how to score in Fantasy Bishball:

Blog post/diocesan paper article/published homily = 1 point

Interview (tv or print)/public appearance (i.e. prayer vigil in front of abortuary; guest speaker at a conference) = 3 points

Ex-communication/El Smackdown (i.e. refusing to offer Holy Communion to pro-abort politician) = 5 points

Anything associated with USCCB = 0 points. (hah!)

In order to get credit for the points, participants have to publish a post that includes a link to the source. You can do this on a daily basis, or publish a weekly post that has all the links (which is how I'm going to do it). We'll do this via the Honor System, but anyone's free to challenge another player (charitably of course) - but I don't want to get overly anal about this. Let's just make this fun.

Also - only the original source counts. For instance, if Cardinal Burke gives a speech at a pro-life conference, and 25 bloggers link to that speech, you don't get 75 points. You would only get 3 points for the speech itself, and not the additional links. I think that makes sense.

Any thoughts, ideas, recommendations, suggestions?

  1. Because I am insane, my mind is taking this in about 50 directions. We can do the scoring simple this year. But next year, we can have "vocations from the diocese" and each 5 priests is a point or something. Number of regularly celebrated Tridentine Masses as a % of total Masses said in the Diocese. Then we could publish a cool Magazine with all sorts of stats... and playing cards! Wow... this could be fun :)

    Sorry... Ill chill now.

  2. BTW - How many points would a Bishop Tailgate party be:

    Like 5?

  3. Settle down there, young'un! Let's use the KISS method here: Keep It Simple, Sinner.

    As to the tailgate - 3 pts for public appearance, +5 more if he excommunicates one of the ball players.

  4. How 'bout going hunting, killing a deer and hanging it to drain from a tree at the bishop's residence causing a PETA protest? :) (yup, I know one who did this!)

    I think making liberals release an official condemnation is a 5 point bonus, no?

  5. Anything associated with USCCB = 0 points.

    Now hang on there. Even they manage a base hit now and them. They had a good rebuttal to the crimen sollicitationis smoking-gun nonsense.

    Hmmmm, I'll have to give that some thought.

    ha ha!! I rest my case.

  7. Let's get this system sorted out cause we are missing some action like Cardinal George scoring some points with his Fr. Pflegar booting. Granted, I'd probably only have taken the cardinal as a third stringer considering how long this nonsense has gone on, but points is points. :)

  9. I hope this is for events that take place after we draft our bishops.
