The Chosen series - RollTide1987 on 4/22/19 at 5:38 pm
For all of you religious television nuts out there, I think I've found a good one for you. The Chosen is a 100% crowdfunded series that has been greenlighted for seven seasons. It's the story of Jesus of Nazareth seen through the eyes of the people who knew him. Despite it being crowdfunded, the ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

If Eastern Christianity fell, it's a good bet that Western Christianity would follow in a few generations. When Pope Urban II called the First Crusade in 1095, it came after o...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I don't know if it's true, because it's the internet and you can't trust anything. But the dude had 7 no-hitters. That's the stat everyone knows. What I didn't know, is that Ryan had 5 more no-hitters that were finally broken up in the 9th inning. That's pretty freaking crazy. ...
