Ohio Basketball

It seems that preaching a mission in Ohio means an introduction to the Sports culture of the Midwest. Everytime I have preached a mission in Ohio, the local team has won a state championship.

Last year it was the Girls basketball team.

This year it seems that the boys team is on their way. Last Night they won the regional championship game and now are on their way to the State semi-finals.

The first time I preached a mission in Ohio was back in '93 in Girard, OH. The mission started on the night that the Girard Boys Basketball team won the State Championship.

Dear Fr. Jeff,
Welcome back, we missed you. My husband Brian and son DJ want to know when you will preach the mission at St. Joseph in Alameda, so they can also win the state championship.
