Of Battling Bishops, &c.

There's something ironic about the athletics mascot of an institution named Ohio Wesleyan be a "Battling Bishop" in cassock, fascia and biretta. Yes, a real live biretta! Of course there's no tuft, and he's wearing red, so maybe it's just a very confused cardinal.

It also seems appropriate to remember that the Fighting Irish were once called, I kid thee not, the Papists. Oh, and with regards to the upcoming USC game, let me remind our southern Californian readership that Troy lost the war to the Greeks, and our current President is a philosopher-king, so I think you can do the math there.
