On Blessed are the Joke Makers, the Dudes must take on the persona of a rebellious teenager to answer the prompt, “a lesser-known Bible story is about ____.”

In his role as an adjunct professor, Steve teaches a fascinating class at Seton Hall called Sports & Spirituality.  This class starts with an understanding of the human person and then explores how sports and spirituality both require discipline, fortitude, and forgiveness.
