You’d think, here in the South, churches would not have to resort to sad and desperate messages to bring in the flock. But on a church sign, between Houston and Austin, was this pronouncement:
“Church is cheaper than NFL tickets.”
Never mind that this particular church was nowhere near a football stadium, or really any professional sports team… You would think the two Texas religions would have found a way to share Sundays by now. Perhaps the church is nervous as the NFL encroaches on the rest of the week – Monday, Thursday, Saturday … really the only things stopping football from total week dominance are cops and concussions.
