    Wait- is the debate going to take place on the League and the First Things blog? Or is Vanity Fair going to cover it, complete with Annie Leibovitz pictures of you two with captions like “The Godless” and “The Righteous” and 120 pages of fashion ads?

    (I kid, but I’m seriously a sniveling geek fanboy when it comes to Vanity Fair.)Report

    For future reference, we generally go by “Noted Creed Apologist Joe Carter” when referring to First Things’ esteemed web editor:

    I want to observe that this comment thread has been the shining highlight of an otherwise dreary day. Thanks. I’m in stitches here.Report

    That’s great. I remember when Joe came up with the Cubs in ’83 — I was in Leesville, La., trying to find my way east, which has nothing to do with the subject. He was no Rocky Colavito, though, but then who could be? Perhaps a comparison to Ernie Banks is more appropriate, but not really. Ten years before that, I could have made it to the minors, but I broke my arm in a barfight and changed direction, never dreaming one day I’d be anticipating such an event.Report

    I can’t believe that this thread has gone on for this long, and gotten this dorky (ahem… “blood for the blood god”?) and no one has called attention to your radically improbably claim to take on the aspect of Tolkienian true-silver.Report
