the last book I ever read (Nate Jackson's Slow Getting Up, excerpt fourteen)

from Slow Getting Up: A Story of NFL Survival from the Bottom of the Pile by Nate Jackson:

The offensive linemen are the most devout Christians on the team. They attend Mass on game day and during the week. They attack their religious study as though it might offset the brutality with which they attack their jobs. Jesus levels them out. They’re a thoughtful bunch: my favorite group with whom to break bread.
