Right after I typed the title of this post, I realized that it is figurative in two ways. At first, I just typed it because I meant that Lent is almost over and it's time to release the pent up "rage." It's already begun leaking. Well, the other...hmm, I'll let you guys figure it out. And no, it doesn't have to do with anyone's TOM, so all of you friends of mine that are girls, stop it and stop telling me that stuff. Just joking...sort of.
But yes, Lent is almost over. Palm/Fig Sunday today, no names for Monday and Tuesday (if I remember correctly), Spy Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, then the Paschal Triduum: Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday. Good stuff, exciting stuff. Just a little refresher for all of you who have forgotten the names. I won't go into anymore detail on the days, this is not a religion class. Go to O'Dea if you want to learn that stuff.
(Side note: Jason Kidd is now 3rd on the all-time assist leaders list. Ahead of him are Mark Jackson and John Stockton. While he may be able to surpass Mark Jackson before he retires, I don't think he'll beat out John Stockton for first place. While 4th - 2nd place all have assists in the 10,000s, John Stockton is in 1st place with an insane 15,806. That Karl Malone, man.)
Lent. Its end. Retribution. Oh, also, you know how we always hear about the 40 days of Lent, yet if we count from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, it's 47 days? Easter Sunday doesn't count as part of Lent. Lent ends when Holy Saturday ends. That leaves 46 days. Now, if you take away the 6 Sundays between Ash Wednesday and Holy Saturday because they are not really a part of Lent, that leaves you with 40 days of Lent. BAM! Actually, what I wanted to say was, "BAM, muhfuckuhs." And guess what? That's ok, because today isn't really a part of Lent. =) Have a magnificent day!
