Grilling Beaver

Apparently opening day is also the Catholic holiday called Good Friday and some Catholics are upset about this. I'm not sure if they're upset because the game is being played that day in the first place or because they can't eat Italian sausages on opening day due to the overlap. Don't the Brewers always play games on religious holidays? I seem to remember an Easter game in 1987 being pretty special. And the Packers have even played on Christmas, no?

It's probably more likely that they're upset about the "no meat" thing. But fear not Catholics! I heard on Cash Cab this morning that Catholics classify beavers as fish. I wonder what a beaver burger tastes like.

Or they could just stop listening to the rules that the pope and their imaginary friend want them to live by and eat up.

As a one-time good Catholic boy, most Catholics (the church-goers, not Frank Black's backup band) have no problem playing the game on Good Friday. Rather, at issue is the timing of play between noon and 3, which Catholics are supposed to observe in solemn remembrance of Christ's time on the cross.
