Politically correct baseball . . . what's next?!

New England television station WBZ TV carried an interesting story about a minor league baseball team that played a "politically correct" baseball game recently in an effort to boost attendance.

While the Lowell Spinners and Brooklyn Cyclones played the game, the announcers struggled with terms like "first baseperson," and "vertically-challenged stop." All in all, a pretty hilarious evening.

What would happen if political correctness came to church, I wonder?

Oh yeah, the TNIV.

Sorry, Wally. I just couldn't resist.

And what translation do you use?

Nestle - Aland Novum Testamentum Graece. Don't you? Okay, you got me. Actually, I use the NLT, another padded, politically correct version.

That was hilarious!

And bonus points for using "padded."

"Padded" was just for you.
