Trivia

Did you know that the two US states that have never recorded a temperature over 100 degrees are Alaska and .... Hawaii? Neither did I, that's why my Trivia team tied at 92 points instead of winning with 93 ... Trivia Night is a huge event at Holy Cross Parish. It's a fundraiser for the school and we do it four or five times a year. 300 people crammed into the school auditorium, everyone trying to remember what year Jesse Ventura was elected governor and what Disney movie featured the characters Si and Am. Highlight of the night was undoubtedly my pastor singing karaoke to "Broken Wings." If you've never met Fr. Mike Matthews ... you should. He's extremely tall and thin, with Coke-bottle glasses and a huge smile. He's a fantastic priest - not only does he sing and dance for us at Trivia Night, it occurs to me that he has that cheerful and fun-loving spirit all the time. The kind of joy we should all have in serving the Lord ...
