Tom Krasovic blogs that the Padres are one of the first clubs to make yoga mandatory for the team:

Yoga remains a key part of Padres spring-training preparations. Katherine Roberts is in her sixth season of yoga instruction here at the Padres' complex. The Padres were among the first major league clubs to make yoga workouts mandatory Others have followed, including the Dodgers...

I was reading this book about exorcisms earlier in the year, I read it from 10pm to 2am every night for a week.  Not the best time to be reading a book on that subject.  It would scare the hell out of me, so I tried to just read it as fast as possible to get it over with.  The exorcist in the book mentioned that doing yoga could lead to possession.  It's made me scared to do yoga on my Wii Fit ever since.  Just seeing the book laying around scared me so I lent the book to Dex and his wife hid it from him, it's probably for the best.

Is Yoga Evil?

Fr Jeremy Davies, chief exorcist of the Roman Catholic diocese of Westminster writes: “.. The thin end of the wedge (soft drugs, yoga for relaxation, horoscopes just for fun and so on) is more dangerous than the thick end, because more deceptive – an evil spirit tries to make his entry as unobtrusively as possible.”

What if you went to one of those Bikram Yoga classes where they heat up the room with the fires of hell and the Devil is your instructor, would you stay for the class?  If you are able to complete the class you have bragging rights, but me, I'd run away.  I bet the Dark One is crazy flexible.

I'm not really sure what my point here is, but I'm just thinking the Padres shouldn't be messing with the dark arts and if they do they better have an old and young priest on staff.
