timberland earthkeepers chelsea Causes Of Muscle Cramps In Pointe Shoes

timberland boots 6 Causes Of Muscle Cramps In Pointe Shoes

There are different causes of muscle cramps in pre pointe and pointe shoe exercise. Not that you have to be a dancer in poionte shoes, or even any kind of athlete to get muscle cramps. Lack of hydration is probably the most common cause of muscle cramps, with mineral deficiency a close second.

If you are an athlete or a fitness buff, or consider yourself neither but just like to work out a lot, effective hydration means sipping water at frequent breaks. Waiting until you have finished an entire workout, class, or team practice and then downing a quart of cold water or drink, isn’t the way to go. Having a water bottle handy, not too cold, where you can sip every few minutes, keeps the body properly hydrated.

I don’t recommend sports drinks or so called vitamin or electrolyte drinks. Your body wants water. However, if someone in your class collapses in hot weather, and asks for liquids, you will give them whatever is handy. Generally though, there are ways to quickly mineralize the body without consuming such damaging ingredients as high fructose corn syrup, a few teaspoons of sugar (as in soda with “real” sugar), or artificial food neon colorings.

Another handy way of carrying electrolyte replacement is to get the homeopathic tablets that dissolve under the tongue. They come in individual minerals, and also an “all twelve” form.

Foot Cramps Are Extremely Painful

Cramps in the arch of the foot are hard to relieve, especially when you are tied into a pair of pointe shoes. One of the causes of muscle cramps particularly in ballet, is that the sole of the foot muscles are still too weak to bear the body weight in toe shoes. Here is one of the exercises you can practice every day (well, six days always rest one day a week).

Sit on a low chair so you can place your feet firmly on the floor. One foot at a time, pull the center of your foot off the floor,
timberland earthkeepers chelsea Causes Of Muscle Cramps In Pointe Shoes
as high as you can. Imagine that you are making a dome shape, with a hollow underneath your foot. Depending on the natural shape of your foot, this might not look like a dome, but the important part is that you can feel the muscles under the foot, and draw them up.

If you cannot feel the muscles at first, and can’t get this tiny but specific movement, practice it with one hand, on the floor, or a table top. Your hand bones will move more, and make a dome easily. So you’ll get the idea clearly of what your foot is trying to do. Once your foot muscles feel it, do at least ten times, and gradually increase the repetitions to twenty times, each foot.

Relaxing Muscles Increases Muscle Tone

After doing this exercise, use a soft sports ball like a Pinkie Ball, or a golf ball, to roll around under the arches, and relax the muscle tension.

Soaking the feet in warm water and Epsom Salts or sea salt is relaxing as well. Magnesium sulphate, in Epsom Salts, is a wonder mineral, in which many people are deficient. It absorbs through the skin and performs many crucial cellular activities in the body. One is regulating your blood calcium levels, which determines (among many things) how much your muscles can contract and relax properly.

Bathing in Epsom Salts will also increase your overall health. Search on line for Epsom Salts and you’ll be fascinated at the health benefits you can get from using it. If you study ballet, or are just interested in health and fitness,

read up on this easy to get substance.

Tense muscles are weaker than muscles that are stretched and relaxed properly. Understanding the causes of muscle cramps and these tips about pointe shoe exercise will help you avoid foot and arch pain in ballet classes.

timberland pro 105 Causes For Swollen Toes

timberland down vest Causes For Swollen Toes

The human body sometimes becomes mysterious in its ways of showing what is wrong with it. Often a problem can manifest many symptoms and it up to you to understand what the symptoms are pointing at, in order to cure yourself of the ailment. One such symptom is swollen toes. To diagnose the underlying disease you may be suffering from, it better to comprehend the various swollen toes causes.

Swollen Toes Causes

Let take a brief look at some of swollen toes causes. Aside from the below mentioned swollen toes causes, diseases like gout, diabetes, arthritis etc. can also be the underlying factor behind red swollen toes and could be causes of swollen ankles.

Lymphedema: It is a disease in which lymphatic fluid is retained locally in the various body parts and hence, causes swelling. It can induce general as well as local swelling in several body parts including toes. Lymphedema treatment is possible through pump therapy, compression and surgery.

Venous Insufficiency: When blood does not reach properly from the leg veins to the heart, it results in the accumulation of blood in the defective veins. It causes cramping and throbbing pain in the legs and also, causes swollen ankles and feet.

Cellulitis: Cellulitis is the inflammation of the skin tissues and is caused by many different conditions, ranging from fever to an injury. Cellulitis of the legs results in soreness, redness around the affected area,
timberland pro 105 Causes For Swollen Toes
swelling and even scabs and blisters.

Infection: Skin infections or blood infections or even bacterial infections causes the toes to swell up. Skin infections like atopic dermatitis can be one of the causes of itchy swollen toes.

Blunt Trauma: An injury like banging into the wall or any other hard surface is one of the common swollen feet causes. Runners and joggers alike, experience swollen toes from running hard. After heavy running exercises, they often complain of throbbing pain in limbs, followed by swollen toes and swelling in the ball of foot. Ice baths for the foot is the best and simplest cure for this.

Tight Footwear: Avoid wearing shoes that are too tight as tight footwear could be culprit behind your red swollen toes. Notice whether you are experiencing pain in the toes particularly after you wear tight footwear.

Allergic Reaction: Allergic reaction to medications or insect bites usually affects the sensitive part of the body like the lips, fingers or toes etc. Hence, it is wise to be aware of the what could trigger allergic reaction in you and avoid it completely.

Infected Cut: An infected cut or scrape on the toes can lead to swelling of the toes and fingers. The swelling subsides when the injury is healed or septic cut is taken care of with help of medicines.

Thorn or Splinter: A thorn or a splinter in the toes can go undetected but duly cause pain and swelling in the foot. To ascertain that this is not the case with you, check the palm of your ankle or toes to eliminate this possibility.

Swollen Toes Symptoms And Treatment

If the swollen toes are the result of the another condition, then it would be accompanied by other symptoms particular to that disease. However, swollen toes are often red and tender to touch. Itchiness due to swollen toes often indicates skin infections. Other than these, there are not many major symptoms related to swollen toes. For home treatment of swollen toes, you could just dip your feet in warm water containing Epsom salts which effectively cures swollen toes caused by infections. A paste of turmeric with red sandalwood will also work wonders to reduce the swelling in feet. Applying ice pack is the tried and tested cure for swelling in the body. Besides these, hydrogen peroxide can also reduce inflammation in toes.

timberland shoe sale Causes and Relief for Common Pain Points

timberland steel toe Causes and Relief for Common Pain Points

Heel pain is the most common problem affecting the foot, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), and plantar fasciitisis the most common cause of heel pain. If the first step you take when you get out of bed in the morning feels like a sharp pain under your heel, you probably have plantar fasciitis, or inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that connects the heel to the front of your foot and supports your arch.

Plantar fasciitis, which usually stems from repeated stress to the foot that strains the fascia beyond its normal extension, is often worse after long periods of inactivity and temporarily diminishes as you begin to walk around. “The fascia relaxes when you’re sleeping and the swelling kicks in more,” says Jacqueline Sutera, DPM, a podiatric surgeon in New York City. “Then, when you stand, you put all your body weight on this inflamed tissue.”

“Plantar fasciitisis aggravated by tight muscles in your feet and calves,” says Dr.

Wearing shoes (even slippers) with good arch support is also key, since supporting the arch takes tension off the fascia. Flip flops, ballerina flats, and going barefoot are no no’s. Your weight and gait may play a role too: In one study, people with chronic plantar fasciitis were three times more likely to be obese and nearly four times more likely to have feet that roll inward more than normal, so consider orthotics to decrease strain on the plantar fascia.

If pain lingers longer than two weeks, see your doctor, who may recommend physical therapy, cortisone injections, or a night splint.

RELATED: The Best Shoes for Plantar Fasciitis, According to Podiatrists

A heel spur is growth of extra bone that protrudes from the base or the back of the heel. It often occurs alongside plantar fasciitis, has similar symptoms (sharp pain at the back of the bottom of the foot), and responds to the same treatments, but despite common belief the conditions are not the same. In fact, heel spurs aren’t necessarily even a problem: According to the AAOS, while one out of 10 people have them, only one out of 20 people with heel spurs experiences foot pain.

While heel spurs by themselves may not be painful, these pointy calcifications can cause irritation in the surrounding tissue, including where the plantar fascia attaches onto the heel bone, says Dr. Sutera. Common causes of heel spurs are repetitive trauma to the base of the heel, obesity, poorly fitting shoes, or genetics. Treatment is rest, managing pain with NSAIDs, ice, and stretching, and correcting biomechanical problems with shoe inserts.

Bottom of foot pain:Plantar warts

Feel like you have pebbles in your shoe? Check the soles of your feet for plantar warts. Plantar warts are caused by an infection in the skin due to one of the many forms of human papillomaviruses (HPV). But unlike other types of warts, the plantar variety doesn’t grow outward; instead, the pressure from walking and standing causes them to grow into the skin, creating pain and tenderness on the bottom of your feet. You may develop just one wart or they may occur in a cluster (called mosaic warts). Because they’re flat and tough, it’s easy to confuse plantar warts for calluses. Warts are more likely to have black seed like dots, which are small areas of dried blood.

Plantar warts can disappear with no treatment at all, but it may take several years. They don’t pose a serious health threat, but they can cause discomfort and pain, so you may want to speed their departure. Over the counter peeling medications or patches contain salicylic acid to gradually dissolve the dead cells of the warts.

If your wart doesn’t improve with home treatment, your doctor can try using liquid nitrogen to freeze it off or burning, scraping, cutting, or shaving it off. Warts are contagious, so to avoid getting or spreading them, wear flip flops in locker rooms, don’t touch someone else’s wart, and since moisture tends to allow warts to spread keep foot warts dry.

These thick, hard patches of skin form over time as part of your body’s normal protection against prolonged rubbing or pressure the buildup helps protect the underlying skin. (Calluses are not to be confused with blisters, which have a watery liquid inside and tend to develop more quickly.) When calluses appear on the feet, they’re typically on the underside (sole), often on the ball or heel, and they can be painful when standing or walking. Ill fitting shoes are frequently the culprit, but gait issues can create excess pressure that causes skin to thicken too.

To treat a callus, NYC dermatologist Sejal Shah, MD, recommends using a pumice stone to gently remove the buildup of dead skin after bathing. Be careful not to take off too much skin, which can cause bleeding and infection. Then apply a moisturizer with salicylic acid, urea, or ammonium lactate twice a day to the area to gradually soften tough skin. Avoid razors and scissors (you don’t want to cut into living tissue and expose it to infection!), and don’t use a medically treated pad unless your doctor advises you to. “Try to avoid any repetitive actions that may be causing the calluses,” advises Dr. Shah, who also suggests using cushioned pads to protect calluses from further irritation: Cut a piece of moleskin into two half moon shapes and place them around the callus. To prevent future calluses, wear properly fitting shoes and consider orthotics to correct any gait abnormality.

Unlike many foot problems, which are felt but not seen, it’s easy to spot bunions, the bony protrusions that form at the base of the big toe. Bunions are caused by faulty foot mechanics that affect the way you walk: Years of abnormal motion and pressure on the big toe joint forces the big toe to tilt in toward the second toe. As the bones are progressively thrown out of alignment, the telltale bump appears. People with certain foot types flat feet, low arches, or feet that roll inward are most likely to develop bunions. Since the mechanical structure of your feet is often inherited, bunions tend to run in families.

The big toe joint carries much of your weight while walking, so untreated bunions can cause severe and constant pain. The fluid filled sac surrounding the joint can also become inflamed, compounding the problem. Symptoms mostly occur when you wear shoes that crowd the toes (think narrow, pointy shoes or high heels), which may explain why the American Podiatric Medical Association says that women are up to nine times more likely than men to develop bunions. To reduce pain, opt for shoes with a wide toe box and heels two inches or lower. Gel pads placed over bunions can cushion the area and reduce pain. Also helpful are ice, NSAIDs, and avoiding activity that causes pain, including standing for long periods of time.

For severely inflamed bunions, your doctor can inject cortisone right into the joint to reduce swelling and discomfort. If a bunion continues to worsen, becomes very painful, or begins to affect your mobility, you may want to consider surgery to realign the joint and shave off the protruding bone. Don’t wait too long though, advises Dr. Sutera. “Results may not be as good when the problem is too severe.”

Corns and calluses are essentially the same thing, except corns occur on parts of your feet that don’t bear weight, such as the sides or tops of toes. “They’re usually small and circular with a well defined center that can be hard or soft,” says Dr. Shah, who notes that mushy corns tend to develop between the toes where the skin is moist and sweaty. Unlike blisters, which form quickly, corns develop over time as a result of repeated friction and can be painful when you walk or stand. Treatment is the same as for calluses: Buff to remove the buildup of skin and moisturize regularly to soften skin. Corns can form when too long toenails force the toes to push up against your shoe, so keep your toenails trimmed to help prevent them.

Gout is a form of inflammatory arthritis that triggers a sudden episode of burning pain, stiffness, and swelling in a joint often in the joint of the big toe. The guilty party in gout is an excess of uric acid, a substance that’s naturally found in the body. While your body is usually proficient at regulating the level of uric acid in your blood, too much can lead to the creation of crystals that are deposited in joints.

A gout attack happens when something (such as an evening of drinking) causes uric acid levels to spike or jostles the needle like crystals in your joints. The pain usually strikes at night and intensifies over the next eight to 12 hours before easing after a few days. Gout is more common in men than women, and an unlucky 60% of people who have an attack will have a second one within a year. To prevent future attacks, your doctor may prescribe medication, as well as suggest lifestyle changes, including modifying your diet to lower your body’s level of uric acid.

RELATED: 9 Surprising Triggers of Gout Pain

If a toe (usually the second, third, or fourth) becomes bent upward in the middle in a V shape so it looks like it could hammer a nail, you’re said to have a hammertoe. This often occurs in conjunction with other toe problems, like bunions or corns on top of the bent toe where it rubs against your shoe. Hammertoes develop over time, often from wearing high heeled or toe cramping shoes that push toes into a flexed position. Initially, hammertoes are flexible and can be corrected; if left untreated, toe muscles are unable to straighten and the deformity can become permanent.

Step one to reducing the pain and stopping the progression of a hammertoe is to buy shoes with soft, roomy toe boxes that can accommodate the hammertoe. Placing cushioned pads on the tops of hammertoes may prevent or limit corns. Taping the bent and painful toe to a neighboring straight one (called “buddy taping”) or using straps and splints to keep a hammertoe in its correct place are also helpful. Exercises, such as using your toes to pick things like marbles up off the floor, can stretch and strengthen muscles. If conservative measures fail to alleviate pain, you may need surgery.

Any toenail can become ingrown, but this painful problem is most common on the big toe. Ingrown toenails occur when the nail grows into the surrounding skin or when the skin on one or both sides of a nail grows over the nail’s edge. The toe might throb and become red and swollen. The real agony sets in if the skin around the toenail becomes infected, which can happen if the nail pierces the skin. “It causes so much pain with every step that people are literally tortured by it,” says Dr. Sutera.

She recommends treating ingrown toenail pain by soaking feet in warm water and Epsom salts to reduce inflammation. Then, gently nudge the skin away from the nail bed with a cotton swab and smooth the corner of the nail with an unused fine emery board. Swab the area with antibiotic cream. See a physician if there’s swelling, redness, pus, or increased pain; chances are the skin has become infected.

You might get an ingrown toenail after injuring your toe, but too tight shoes and poor nail grooming habits are the main causes of ingrown nails. To prevent future ingrowns, cut nails straight across and then file the corners into a slightly rounded shape avoid “points” that can jab skin.

Almost everyone will eventually develop some degree of osteoarthritis (OA), which is caused by the wear and tear on the cartilage that acts as a shock absorber between bones. As the cartilage breaks down, bones rub against each other, causing pain and restricting movement. The most common site of OA in the foot is in the joint at the base of the big toe, according to the AAOS. Adding insult to injury, a bone spur can develop where the bones rub together, and this overgrowth can keep the toe from bending as much as it needs to when you walk, resulting in a stiff big toe (technically called hallux rigidus).

There are many ways to ease the pain of OA, including NSAIDs, heat and ice, exercise and physical therapy, and losing weight. If you don’t find relief from these options, your doctor may recommend more aggressive treatment.

If you develop hallux rigidus, wearing the right shoes is important. Make sure they have plenty of room for your toes, and consider shoes with stiff soles some people find they relieve pain. You may need to avoid high impact activities like running. If these remedies aren’t enough to reduce pain, your doctor may recommend cortisone injections or surgery to shave the bone or realign the big toe.

Dow: / NASDAQ: / S 500:Quiz: How well do you know your guns?Raleigh McKenzie and Terry Orr were more than just teammates during the Washington Redskins glory days of the 1980s and early Each was a groomsman in the other wedding, their kids played together, and McKenzie is godfather to one of Orr four sons. So when Orr came to McKenzie in 1997 with an interesting business proposition, McKenzie had no reason not to listen.a good guy, McKenzie said. people would say that, players and coaches alike. He was always doing the right thing. If he said he was gonna do something, he would do it. But Orr, who earned two Super Bowl rings, wasn a very good businessman, and he ended up doing some wrong things. District Court in Alexandria, Orr admitted to bilking McKenzie, as well as ex teammates Art Monk and Brian Mitchell and an investor from Georgia, out of $141,000. He pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud. Other charges were dropped.Later this month, Orr, 40, will start a 14 month sentence at the federal prison camp in Lewisburg, Pa. He also must make an effort to repay McKenzie, Monk, Mitchell and James Sowersby, a businessman from Jonesboro, Ga., a portion of their investments.The three former Redskins each invested and lost $50,000 in a failed shoe company deal, and the court ruled that Orr misused some of their money. Two other ex teammates, Ed Simmons ($50,000) and Earnest Byner ($25,000), also invested with Orr and lost their money, but the prosecution could not prove any of it was misused.Some of the money raised by Orr from his teammates and Sowersby was used for personal expenses and debts owed to investors from another ill fated deal. For example, Orr used $11,000 to cover an overdraft on his checking account and $15,000 for a down payment on a GMC Suburban. He was in danger of losing his house, so $22,000 of Monk investment was used for mortgage payments (Orr eventually did lose the house to foreclosure). He also used the money to pay bills, education expenses for his children and a fur coat, among other things.There also were other investors, and they have filed a civil suit to prevent Orr from declaring bankruptcy and forgo paying his creditors. But their lawyer, Gregory Murphy, doubts any of them will get much back, if anything. can get blood out of a stone,

he said.McKenzie, who would stand to recover nearly his entire investment, said, would be like a big Christmas present. I not sitting around waiting for it. Of Orr ex teammates, only McKenzie would comment or could be reached. McKenzie, like just about everyone who knew Orr in the dressing room or elsewhere, was shocked when he learned of Orr behavior. never shown any malicious behavior, he said.Most people who knew Terry Orr recall him as an intelligent, caring person with political aspirations and diverse interests, a good family man. Another former teammate, Rick Walker, called Orr quality guy. Mark Mitchell, a collector of historic newspapers and manuscripts who became friends with Orr, said, very hard for me to believe he is a bad guy. If he not a guy, Orr was a poor judge of character who linked up with the wrong people, a failed entrepreneur who harbored big dreams but lacked the instinct and savvy to realize them. And when he found himself in over his head, he used his friends money not only to bail himself out, but for his own use.Orr would not speak to The Washington Times. His lawyer, Christopher Amolsch, said, took some bad advice from people. I believe he feels horrible about this entire thing. He didn go down this road with the intention of hurting anyone. He was conned along with everyone else. Murphy has a different opinion.not a surprise that he was able to con people because he has a veneer that is very appealing, Murphy said. comes across as a very nice person. An shucks sort of attitude that very endearing.wouldn question whether some of the people he was involved with were also up to misdeeds here. But do I think he was unwittingly duped? Absolutely not. I gone through all of his records and there no way he didn know he wasn writing luxury checks, as opposed to the business venture. Terry had to know what he was doing when he was taking money from his friends. McKenzie was a guard in the NFL for 16 seasons, 10 with the Redskins, and played with Orr on the 1987 and 1991 Super Bowl champion teams. He said he has had no recent contact with Orr, nor has he received an apology or explanation. he can do it face to face, at least write a letter, he said.And yet McKenzie said he is no longer angry.past that, he said. is probably the better word. A native of Savannah, Ga., Orr moved to Abilene, Texas, and attended the University of Texas, where he was a running back. The Redskins drafted Orr in the 10th round in 1985, and then coach Joe Gibbs converted him to tight end and H back. After sitting out his first year with an injury, Orr played through the 1993 season with a brief interruption he was released in 1990 and signed with San Diego. He then re signed with Washington the following year. Although Orr was known more for his blocking than his receiving, he seemed to make every catch count, averaging 18.1 yards for his 52 career receptions. He scored 10 touchdowns.One of Orr most important plays was neither a block nor a catch. After the Denver Broncos took a 10 0 lead in Super Bowl XXII in January 1988, Ricky Sanders fumbled the ensuing kickoff. The Broncos might have blown the game open had they recovered. Instead, Orr fell on the loose ball and the Redskins stormed back to win 42 10 behind quarterback Doug Williams and running back Timmy Smith.

In his eighth season of professional baseball, Catonsville native Adam Kolarek finally got the call that he was being promoted to the Tampa Bay Rays Major League Baseball team.

Kolarek, a 2007 graduate of Catonsville High, was pitching in the Triple A International League for the Durham Bulls in Indianapolis when he got the news late Tuesday.

Adam Kolarek, a 2007 Catonsville High graduate, signed this autograph for Reenie Desrosiers in 2010 while playing for the Brooklyn Cyclones after being drafted by the New York Mets. Kolarek was just promoted to the Tampa Bay Rays Major League squad after playing with the Durham Bulls.

could be pitching in front of family and friends this weekend at Oriole Park at Camden Yards when the Baltimore Orioles host the Rays in a three game homestand June 30 through July 2.

“I’m really excited for him to get this chance,” Hambor said. “I’m sure there will be a lot of people coming out to say Hi and congratulate him and, If I know Adam, he’s excited and he’s going to be ecstatic, but I also know he wants to make it count and I’m sure he will.”

Kolarek’s parents, Frank and Dorothy, were on their way to Pittsburgh on Wednesday afternoon to watch them play the Rays after getting the call Tuesday night.

“He called us last night and he didn’t pitch and we usually talk after he pitches,” Frank Kolarek said. “When he called us last night it was kind of a surprise. He called us right away and it was a phone call like no other phone call.”

Frank Kolarek played in the Oakland Athletics organization from 1976 1979, but never got called up to the Major League squad during the regular season.

“I was never called up during the regular year and my only glimpse was in spring training and all that means is you get a nice pair of shower shoes,

” Kolarek said. “I couldn’t be happier. Whatever happened to me was nothing compared to what happened to Adam. He’s earned this.”

Morning deejays are playing pope songs on the radio, offering pope merchandise for sale, even broadcasting ads for tomorrow’s papal Mass at Oriole Park at Camden Yards that seem more geared to race car drivers than men and women raised on the Baltimore Catechism. Late night talk show hosts are working the pontiff into their monologues.

Even “Saturday Night Live’s” Father Guido Sarducci, longtime reporter and gossip columnist for the Vatican Inquirer and L’Obssevatore Romano, was offering his slant on the papal proceedings yesterday during an interview on 98 Rock’s morning show with Byrd, Mark & Lopez.

When a caller to the 98 Rock studio asked if there were any special competition connected with being chosen pope, Father Guido had this revealing piece of trivia: “They do arm wrestling. That’s why this guy won. He was young when he was made pope. All the other guys, they were like 80.”

The pope must be used to this stuff by now. He might even feel insulted if David Letterman didn’t give him a Top Ten List like the one offered last week.

Top 10 Things on the Pope’s ‘To Do’ List:

10. Get “The Club” put on the Popemobile.

9. Confirm Red Hot Chili Peppers as opening act in Central Park.

8. Call ahead to make sure the Ramada has magic fingers.

7. Get big hat blocked.

6. Think of diplomatic way to advise President Clinton to “Cool it with the broads, Bubba.”

5. Pitch idea of cameo appearance as Murphy Brown’s secretary.

4. Perform exorcism on Richard Simmons.

3. Forgive Letterman for hosting the Academy Awards.

2. Scotchgard the robes.

1. Pray for CBS.

You might wonder what’s so funny about a guy in a big hat who’s the spiritual leader of some 60 million American Catholics? You’d understand if you’d grown up Catholic and enjoyed few things more than having a good laugh at the expense of the nuns and priests who ruled your life with such an iron hand.

Plus, for some irreverent Catholics, it’s like belonging to a private club, or understanding a language that only a select few speak.

“For the truly dedicated and informed Catholics in the audience,” says Brian Wilson, morning deejay on 104.3 FM, The Colt, “I’m going to change the show’s name to ‘The Anthropomorphological Brian Wilson Morning Show,
sale timberland boots Catholic comedy goes on a holy roll
‘ where transubtantiation is not just a divine mystery, it’s a way of life.”

OK, so maybe a reference to transubstantiation the miracle by which bread and water is changed into the body and blood of Christ is too esoteric for most people. Still, anything Catholic, anything related to the pope, is proving fair game.

On radio, Stevie and the Satellites on WQSR have pitched in with “Let Me In Pope” (to the tune of John Fogerty’s “Centerfield,” the refrain goes, “Let me in pope, I’m ready to pray . . . today”), while the morning crew at 98 Rock has offered up a song to the tune of “Pinball Wizard” (“Even at my favorite altar/He sure is the best/His disciples lead him in . . ./Cardinal Keeler and the rest”).

Wednesday night, Conan O’Brien interviewed a cantankerous “pope” bent out of shape because he was just interviewed by the effervescent Kathie Lee Gifford (“That woman is a nightmare.”). Thursday, both Mr. Letterman and Jay Leno joked about the popemobile being outfitted with The Club, suggesting that the font of papal humor may be running a bit dry.

Is there an ultimate pope joke? Steve Rouse, spiritual leader of WQSR’s Rouse & Company morning show, offers this one,
