The Hail Mary Pass Comes Later
A shot of the seldom-seen Tridentine preparatory ritual known as the "pre-game huddle."*
*Note to the humor-impaired: I actually really love the Prayers at the Foot of the Altar, with all its responses and intricate bows. (Indeed, while I'm not strictly speaking a Trad, the older I get, the traddier I become in certain areas.) It's the best way to kick off a mass I know; but you have to admit at times it can look a little comical out of context. Unlike football, however, color commentators are better left out of mass.
