    I thought he was Mormon. Seriously. Thanx for the info. At least some RCs properly believe in Jesus.

    Well, Roger came to Belmont, America, recently with his company and by news reports is aligned with the Catholics.

    I grew up in the Dallas area, and it seemed like every football fan knew Roger was a Catholic. However, he did come and speak to a group of us 'Royal Ambassadors' at a Baptist camp once.

    Anyway, if he weren't Catholic, he probably would not have "invented" that football term, Hail Mary, to mean a desperation long pass in the final seconds to win (which he did against Minnesota in the playoff game in 1975, and said after the game it was his "Hail Mary pass").

    Being a Dallas Cowboys fan for as long as I can remember - yep.
