Remember when the Archdiocese of Montreal took out a full page newspaper ad that showed an idealized version of how the NHL Eastern Conference would finish? They hoped their team, the Montreal Canadiens, would finish in the top eight and secure a playoff spot:
The Canadiens were purposely left off the list of 15 teams and replaced by the word “Prions” — French for “let Us Pray” — in the 8th slot. (Yep, the English translation of “prion” makes that even funnier.)
So how did that prayer work out for the church?
Not so well…
The Canadiens are currently in last place:
They won’t be making it to the playoffs this season.
Does anyone know when the Church is going to address the media as to why all their prayers failed? Because I’d like tickets for that.
