GRIDDE PICKS

An unnamed Vatican source
telephoned the Daily late last night
in an attempt to intimidate Griddes
members into not printing Pope
John Paul II's weekend football
selections. After printing the historic
and somewhat controversial mailing
of his Griddes picks earlier this
week, Vatican officials were afraid of
the added, and possibly negative,
publicity.
Certain church members were
disturbed at the pontiff's decision to
play Griddes, due to his recent
speeches concerning morality here in
the United States. The devilish
dissidents claim Griddes to be "a
sacrilegious game that has no
redeeming qualities." The Catholic
hierarchy, while not sharing the
critics' views, is worried about the
negativeipublicity surrounding the
boiling situation.
The scenario has members of the
clergy hot under the collar due to the
Pope's Saturday arrival in Detroit.
Not since the gargantuan, garrulous
sports extravaganza of Wrestlemania
III, have 93,000 religious fanatics
come to mass at the Pontiac
S ilverdome.
Vatican officials, after reviewing
Sistine Chapel renovation plans
with interiordesigners, spoke to top-
ranking Griddes officials about the
possible explosive situation. The
Griddes staff feels that the
tremendously expensive price of
their renovation and the relatively
poor selling of the John Paul II doll
in the United States have Vatican
officials distracted and emotionally
disturbed.
The Griddes staff will do all it can
to assure Church officials that their

wishes are accommodated, and that
the Pope's choices are guarded
around the clock at Griddes
headquarters. Alongside the
Pinkertons hired by the Griddes staff,
there are the- world famous Vatican
Guard to protect the pontiff's picks.
Please join the Pope i n
participating in this holy endeavor
by bringing your picks to the Daily
office, 420 Maynard, second floor,
before 5 p.m. today. The winners
will not only receive a sermon from
Griddes staff members, but an
indulgence from Domino's Pizza.
