Pre-Game Show

In an attempt to compete with the excellent Lent Madness videos coming from Maple Anglican, the Supreme Executive Committee has released a Pre-Game video to highlight tomorrow’s contest between Samuel Seabury and George Berkeley (make sure you pronounce his name correctly). This is the third play-in match, to determine whether Seabury or Berkeley will earn a spot in the first round of Lent Madness.

For the record, the Supreme Executive Committee have passed a unanimous resolution condemning Maple Anglican for, on the one hand, mispronouncing Tim’s name and, on the other hand, making Scott’s photo too small. Aside from those huge problems, we commend Maple’s introduction to Lent Madness.

Tune in tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time to cast your vote for Berkeley or Seabury.

    I will assume that this FM item is NOT the Lent Madness guide for Lenten adult programming: “Good Lord Deliver Us: 40 Days of Lent ”

    Gosh! How many different ways could there be of pronouncing Tim? Also, poor Maple Anglican who still can’t let go of the pineapple thing.

    OK, with the exception of those glaring mistakes, I found the video to be entertaining and educational, especially for the newcomers. But please, Maple Anglican, let go of the pineapple thing! *Shakes head in disbelief*

      No, I let go of the “Big Pineapple” thing a long time ago. I just like to poke a bit of fun.
      In the video I released yesterday I didn’t even mention Pineapple at all:

    Dearest Scott,
    Thank you for giving us loyal fanatics, um, fans a heads up about Seabury vs. Berkeley. I do however suggest that you do not “get your knickers in a twist” over minor perceived slights presented in Maple Anglican’s video. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it!

      Don’t worry, it’s the 3rd Play-in round. Lent Madness proper hasn’t begun yet.

    Grammar, grammar, grammar! Supreme Executive Committee HAS. I know there are two members, thus making a group, but it is just one group – therefore HAS and not have. Oh my!

    I don’t know if you’ve “improved” the website or videos, but last year I had no problem viewing and this year, you guys are talking REALLY slowly, with lots of pauses. Maybe my kids are just eating up all the bandwidth in the house.

    So, is that Scott playing the organ for this year’s theme music?

    Didn’t I see the clairvoyatron on an episode of Dr Who? I seem to remember K-9 barking at it. I remember very little from my Christian philosophy class of yore, but I do recall our prof insisted it was BARCLAY (pronounced). xx

    Scott is quite right is using the plural for a collective noun…as in Baltimore are hoping for a win on Sunday. Arsenal are also hoping for a win.
