Kung's Bane Week 21

Dear Managers,

I think it's just me and someone in Dubuque posting.  It's lonely playing bishball by yourself.  Perhaps we should rethink the season.  Might I put forward an idea?  How about a 12 month season whereby the managers only post for one week during each month.  How about 2-3 managers per team?  That way the managers would only need to post 4-8 times per year!

It's loads of fun seeing the standings change.  If you only needed to do it once per month it would be just as fun.

Let me know what ya'll think.  I've got a lot of bishball fatigue.  The season is just too long for me and evidently it's too long for you too.  The game has brought me deeper into the faith and I certainly champion its cause.


Chaput [20.5]
I was in "the Loggia" and someone "whispered" to me that Archbishop Charles has cancelled the majority of his speaking engagements and is laying very low.  He is listening and getting the feel for his new territory and the problems there.  He won't be making much of a fuss nor racking up loads of points for a while.  Hmmmm

  1. Irrelevant if a bishop makes 100 tweets in one day!
