    No, I can’t. but I wish I could.

    The difference is that me it would be pure fiction out of clear blue sky, where as for them, it’s a culturally fitting prayer of thanksgiving that I thought was nicely done.

    I especially liked this comment to the video :

    A comment from the video : “I wish my husband would thank God for ME! This might not be the kind of prayer I might want to hear at a church service…but for NASCAR…ABSOLUTELY! :-D”

  2. Jeffrey Polet:

    Yes, you can make it up. And it’s been done:

  3. Thomas G.:

    I’m not sure, but I believe that “Boogity, Boogity, Boogity, Amen” is taken from the Tridentine Latin Mass.

  4. love the girls:

    It’s Darrell Waltrip latin for “Let’s go racing, boys!”

    I read that Darrell Waltrip begins each race with it, so while it appears strange, it’s culturally authentic. And far more culturally authentic than what I often find at our Latin Mass parish.

  5. nancy:

    Guilty laughter. I never know quite what to do with it.

  7. Robert:

    To me, this seems but yet another attempt at redemption through “cheap grace.” But then what do I know?

  8. Vance Freeman:

    Wow.

    Doesn’t this prove Gerletner and McDougall’s American Civil Religion thesis?

  9. WhollyRoaminCatholic:

    Those ICEL translations are a lot more slavish than I thought.

    And if the culture is degenerate then we have no reason to admire it.

    Anonymous writes : “And if the culture is degenerate then we have no reason to admire it.”

    Well I suppose it depends on how one sees the world.

    Some see degeneracy and people to sneer at with derision. Others see see consumerism and cheap grace tricks.

    Where as I prefer to see mirth and enjoyment of life, and a knowing where and where not to take ones self too seriously.

    I don’t want to be humorless, but it is hard not to be. :)
