What’s So Good About Good Friday?
I hate Easter. The candy sucks. It’s all about some dead guy. And the worst part is that it’s on a Sunday so I don’t even get a day off of work. At least Columbus and MLK get me a freebie.
As bad as Easter may be, Good Friday is even worse. Although the candy sucks on Easter, at least there is candy. What do you get for Good Friday? Nothing. There’s still school, there’s still work, there are no presents and if that wasn’t bad enough, teams are forced to reshuffle their schedules. Why, just two short years ago the entire Detroit Tigers franchise almost got sentenced to an eternity in hell for playing their home opener on Good Friday.
Luckily 2011 is the year of revolt and I say we continue where the Egyptians and Tunisians left off. Leave work early, get drunk, hunt down the Easter bunny and make rabbit stew. This year, let’s actually make it a Good Friday.
