Take Me Out To The Atheists

I saw where atheists have sponsored an independent minor league team for one night. The Saint Paul Saints have become the Mr Paul Aints. Read:

Dubbed “A Night of Unbelievable Fun,” the Aug. 10 game against the Amarillo Sox will include an auction of players’ special “Aints” jerseys, fireworks and a ceremonial first pitch by David Silverman, president of American Atheists.

The letter “S’’ in all Saints signs and logos around the stadium will be covered, and there are planned references to Big Foot, UFOs and other targets of the skeptical community, team officials said.

Interesting. The president of Minnesota Atheists, August Berkshire:

We want to show that atheists can have fun.

I think we could have some fun with this. Chicago Cubs fans would actually have to give up all hope … without prayers.

The Dodgers would be from Lost Angels. Or Lost Devils if the satanists stepped up to sponsor. Just down interstate 5, the Sandy Ego Partiers. The city by the bay? New Mexico’s state capital: that would be a hard one.

Fair play might suggest Christians could turn names around in their favor. Any suggestions for Christian night?

    Philadelphia Philippians -perhaps a bit arcane.

  2. Todd says:

    Philippians had that kenosis canticle. Kenosis, self-emptying, and the Phils were the last of the original MLB 16 to win the series. Arcane, but it works for me.

    If the guys with red hats were held in somewhat higher esteem, we could make something of the St. Louis Cardinals.
