    You said to give your kids regular names, so they don't turn out all messed up.

    What kind of person sells his daughter for beer and meat? A dude name Jesus, for one.

    It wasn't exactly a "loaves and fishes" story was it? That was one hell of a grocery list, but when you grow up with the name Jesus you kind of learn to expect anything you want.

    Would that be a customary dowery in a Mexican wedding?

    baseball-reference.com lists eleven players with the first name of 'Jesus' who have made it to the major leagues. The most successful was Jesus Alou, who played 15 years in the big leagues, with a .280 lifetime batting average.

    Have you noticed that all the Jesuses genoflex when they get in the batter's box?

    Give me the stats on the prison rolls. I bet there's more than eleven.

    It seems like everyone does that these days. They get a hit and point to the sky. Why don't they shake their fist at the sky when they strike out?

    The Tigers scouted Ron LeFlore while he was in Jackson State Prison in 1973. They signed him to a contract when he was paroled and he made his MLB debut in 1974. After retiring he's been arrested twice for failure to pay child support. I don't know, but maybe he named the child 'Jesus.'

    I meant how many dudes named Jesus are in prison, not how many prisoners make it to the MLB.

    If the Reverend's admonition regarding giving your kid a wacky name, like naming him after God's son, has merit, I'd expect there to be a lot more than eleven dudes named Jesus in prison.

    You should never give your male child the middle name of "Wayne." One of the most common middle names for people on death row. John Wayne Gacy, for example.

    Maybe people named Jesus are just naturally targeted for persecution.
