Amateur Catholic

We don't write books or do speaking tours.
In fact, we barely do our jobs.
-We're the B-Team of Catholic Bloggers-

This is the home of the Amateur Catholic® bloggers - or as we like to refer to ourselves, the B-team. We don't write books or do speaking tours. In fact, we barely do our jobs. That's not to say we're unambitious though... You see, this coalition is just the second phase our blogoshpere conquest. We suppose you could think of us as amateur crusaders too.

Membership will not bring you any money, perks, notoriety, or prestige - but you will get the privilege of proudly displaying the B-team badge on your blog! Lucky you, huh?

If you are hosting a conference, parish function, or some other event and can not afford the exorbitant fees typically associated with a Professional Catholic®, please contact one of our members. We like to hear ourselves talk just as much as the Professional Catholics® do, we just don't charge you for it. But hey give us a meal, free beer, and a designated driver, and we'll speak about breaking the Da Vinci Code or anything else you might care to hear about.

The B-Team badge is copryright 2006, The B-Team Bloggers®. Of course, we're Amateur Catholics®, so if you use the badge without permission (enrolled membership), we won't hunt you down and make you cough up your hard-earned bucks. Just have fun with it and maybe buy us a beer next time you're in town.

"I read the news today, oh boy..."

• "Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm sixty-four?" Paul McCartney reached that point in his life yesterday. In light of the unfortunate breakup of his second marriage, a question that has lingered for nearly four decades has been answered. But at least he isn't losing his hair. He was my favorite Beatle, by the way. (Various)

• In Rochester, New York, a man tried to hold up an auto-parts store. Two employees managed to overpower him, and beat him with a metal pipe. The man pleaded guilty to robbery. Now he's suing the auto-parts store. (AP)

• In Tampa, Florida, two opposing attorneys could not seem to agree on various minutiae, such as a location for taking the sworn statement of a witness in an insurance case. A federal judge had enough of the delays, and ordered them to appear together to settle the matter once and for all with... a round of "rock, paper, scissors." (AP)

• A young girl from Plymouth, England boarding a plane was stopped, when it was discovered she was carrying a gun in her luggage. The model in question was a pink Bugs Bunny water pistol filled with candy. Despite her protests, the implement of destruction was registered at the airport firearms desk, tagged and packed separately. (Washington Post Express)

• A bookstore in Melbourne, Australia, attempted to enter the Guinness Book of World Records yesterday, through an effort to assemble the largest collection of unwanted copies of... Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code." (Washington Post Express)

(This sort of nonsense is a regular feature at man with black hat.)

Only is Rochester. If the guy wins the suit, I am moving!
