Out in the parents watching it. Mother said for JP2 they headed off at 4am for the mass in the Park at 11am. About a 8km journey. Buses brought you to the gate of the park. Reckons they got home about 5.

This is standard across the globe. Sports events face challenging attendances. Non sports events like the GGA the same. When you have HD, multiple camera angle and incredible audio you aren’t gonna go out in inclement weather.

Here we go. At least JP2 tried to communicate with his audience.


#3617

They ask for pardon for abuses committed in institutions? Wtf


#3618

Forgive the lads for abusing the kids.


#3619

Forgive the nuns for locking up single mothers.


#3620

You’ll be roaring for forgiveness when the MRSA kicks in.


#3621

I’m back at home, pal.
