I really hope Jesus isn't a diehard Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Barrons fan...and I'm fairly certain he is.

WNEP-TV, which traditionally televises the home opener of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons, said it would not air Friday night's game against Norfolk at Lackawanna County Stadium.

"Good Friday is not an appropriate day for us to do that," C. Lou Kirchen, the station's president and general manager, said on a recent broadcast.

Instead, the station was to air local news, followed by the tabloid show "Inside Edition," an episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" and then "Primetime," featuring an interview with Tom Cruise.

Great. So instead of some good ole wholesome baseball, the station is airing the shady gossip of drugged-up Hollywood actors and Tom Cruise preaching about Scientology and knocking up Katie Holmes? That makes sense.
