The Boys of Sunday, Week 6

Another light week for Bishop Morlino as he is currently overseas teaching seminarians in Rome. Archbishop Gomez was quiet, likely because of the USCCB meetings. Archbishop Dolan, on the other hand, came out with guns a-blazing as he tackled the topic of gay marriage in multiple forums. This strong push from Dolan to defend marriage drew the ire of progressives, liberals and atheists. One publication went so far as to name Dolan the "d-bag of the day."

  1. You could probably win this thing with just Dolan and a couple of day-old doughnuts. I really hate your team - again, in a Christian way, of course.

  2. Archbishop Dolan has been particularly motivated this season after being slighted by two teams and falling to third overall.
