  • Perhaps we’re all called to be just like Hur

    Once a week my husband meets with a friend to talk sports while I stay at home, close to the computer, to look up obscure sports trivia such as “When was the last time a Canadian hockey team won the Stanley Cup?” (Montreal, 1992.)

    Here’s a bit of sports trivia: How many points did Football Hall of Famer Ed “Too Tall” Jones score during his career? The answer: none.

    He played in 245 games, made 1,032 tackles, blocked 86 passes, was credited with 57 quarterback sacks and 19 fumble recoveries, but not one touchdown and not even one field goal.
