Last night we went with about 50 other members of my congregation to a ball game here in my home town. The Twins (underdog small team) were playing the Oakland Athletics. And WE WON! 13 -2. My husband is a baseball fan from when he was 10 years old and he was at the airport to greet the players when they moved here from Washington (The Washington Senators became the Minnesota Twins.)
However, we don't go to very many baseball games. We just don't.
Why were we there last night?
It was "Lutheran Night at the Twins." Lots of churches brought busloads of Lutherans.
And I'm just wondering: do any other teams have "Lutheran Night" or "Catholic Night" or "Presbyterian Night"?
It does seem odd.
