It reminds me

of a younger version of myself.

It doesn't mean they'll laugh

at the Bible skimming bit.

Well, I just thought that...

You thought that it was funny

enough for a laugh pause.

I mean, maybe a slight smile,

a courtesy chuckle,

but a laugh pause?

What if I work on the timing...

I've only been

with this parish for 30 years,

and you,

just-just over one.

I'm sure going with your gut

is the right call.

Oh, come on, come on.

What, father?


Even the Franciscans have...

Have some rules about... this.

Let me check, father.

And cometh game day,

'tis okay to go forth

in the colors of

thine chosen team

unless thine chosen team

is the Purdue boilermakers

or the Kentucky wildcats.

God is good.

Tip off's in five minutes.

I'm making my nachos.

You never told me how the

Friday-night confession went.

Oh, it was... fine.

There was uh...

It was nothing.

It was fine.


Oh, the game's about to start.

I should probably...

He would have been proud

of who you've become.

Your dad.

Have a good night, father.

Rivers crosses over...

Are you serious?

Did you see that?

Come on!

Did you see that?

Shoot the... three pointer.

For the love of god.

Basket. Dunk.

Father, you're from here, yes?


How do you not love basketball?

I think it's definitely a b...

A good way of...

Okay, okay, okay,

okay, tell me this.

W-what's-what's your thing?

My thing?

You know, your thing,

like I... I played

third string power forward

on my junior high

basketball team.

I went on to never actually make

another squad after that,

so that now I live through them.

Delusional hoop dreams

and saturated fat...

That's my thing.

What's yours?

Uh, I... yeah, I guess,

I mean... god.

God what?

God's my thing.
