Shomer Shabbos!

Pretty funny catch on a Tom Osborne point of pride:

The penultimate chapter in the book, “A Difficult Road to Walk,” is an in-depth exploration of Osborne’s Christianity — he notes that he never infringes on Sundays during the season, so his players can attend services, “Protestant, Catholic or Jewish”…

Mighty white of you there, Coach.  (Not that it likely ever was an issue.)

It’s just a good thing Walter Sobchak never played ball at Nebraska.  (Definitely NSFW.)

    Didn’t know Neb had a team Rabbi on Saturdays.

    If Murray inadvertently genuflects after a td does that mean he is benignly obseving other religions and still qualifies as a shomer shabbos? Never mind. I’ll ask my new Daughter-in-law.

      The Husker team Rabbi also claims that he was the moyel of Manhattan before he was put on a Greyhound that he thought was only going to take the Lincoln Tunnel to Union City, not Lincoln

    “Not likely it was ever an issue”–you’re saying they don’t have Jews in Nebraska? How else you think Tom learned so much about the need for religious tolerance?

    (btw, I know for a fact there are two in Omaha, anyway.)

    What a guy. I bet he was equally liberal with the Seventh Day Adventists.

  7. When my son worked in restaurants in Tuscaloosa, he told them he had to have Saturday’s off because of the Sabbath. Of course, he had to have gameday off. He is pure frozen, chozen, Presbyterian. Scotland baby via Edinburg.

    Are you saying the people are chosen…last for football?

    • Yes, if their ancestors created …Golf, Scotch and the Presbyterian Church. Of course the Church came first. That made it possible for the other two. But first there was God the Father, GOD the SON and GOD the Holy Spirit;Scotch came after that….right Mac!

    John Goodman looks about as Jewish as Lester Maddox.

      Hog, Hog, Hog…I question your commitment to sparkle motion. You simply need to pay more attention to the bowling alley scenes. Walter converted when he married. She divorced his ass 5 years earlier but he kept the faith. The Dude didn’t think that conversion was ever kosher, which is why he called Walter a ****ing Polish Catholic, which makes the casting director look like a genius.

        DIF, strangers to this blog have no idea how widespread they have to read in understanding your posted humor. Thanks for making us search sometimes.

        DiF, your deep familiarity with the backstories of the characters in Lebowski confirms my belief that you are, indeed, A Great American. What’s your second-favorite Coen Brothers film?
