Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 52 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

A wonderful TV distraction

So today, Andrew's baseball game was a forfeit..the other team didn't show up 'because it was too hot'. Of course, our whole team minus one (excused) was there. So we had a 4 inning scrimmage.

After getting the kids ready for bed, what did I discover but a MARX BROTHERS MOVIE MARATHON on Turner Classic Movies! I watched parts of At the Circus, Horsefeathers, and now Duck Soup. The boys appreciated the musical parts, but the dialogue is too fast and dated.
Jennifer has no interest, so we switched back and forth from Tiger Baseball (yes, I like the Marx Brothers Movies enough to miss a night of Tiger baseball (they won).
