ACHS vs. Holy Spirit - 1957

Ed - amazing what you can find when cleaning out the garage.Here are two shots from our victory over Holy Spirit in November of 1957. In the one picture I am #17 running over to help out Dan Keating (I think). Nick Russo (#21) in background. In the other Stan Bergman (18) is knocking down a potential HSHS TD pass. Nick Russo(21) coming to help out. Al Glenn is behind Nick. Steve Schiffer (10) in the line with Ted Burns (23) arm upraised and I think Don Brown (15). Referee is Tom Heckman (father of Karen who married my brother Larry). Also found a bunch of MCBP photos and even the game ball from the above game which I will bring to our 50th. Happy New Year and keep up the great job you are doing..........Regards....Jay McCracken

A woman died and went to heaven. As St. Peter was processing her, she heard a woman screaming in pain. She looked in a room and saw a group of angels drilling holes in the woman's shoulders to fasten the wings to her.

Then she heard a man screaming and saw angels drilling holes in his head to fasten the halo to him.

"I don't want to go to heaven," she told St. Peter. "I'll go to the other place."

"You want to go to hell?" he replies. "They rape and sodomize you down there."

"I don't care," she answered. "At least I already have the holes for those things."
