As I promised last week, I have gotten photographic evidence that Fighting Saints fever is spreading throughout the Railroad industry. Here it is.

This is a picture of a CSX locomotive. CSX operates in the Northern half of the Eastern part of the USA as well as Mexico.  Here we have one of their locomotives rolling down the rails showing their support of my team.


The other Class I railroad that operates in the Eastarn part of the USA is Norfolk Southern. Here is a shot of one of their locomotives with the Fighting Saints logo:


Next up we have one of my fans who has boldly gone where no fan has gone before, the International Space Station. As most people know, my paisan Luca Parmintano is from Italy. Recently on a spacewalk, he had some problems with water getting into his helmet.  The pictures just showed him from the side or back. So people didn’t get to see the front of the suit. Here is a shot of him taken in the suit, sans helmet, before heading out to space. Yes, there among the other patches on it is one with the Fighting Saints.


Speaking of space, I am sure most people are aware that Kate Mulgrew played Captain Kathryn Janeway on Star Trek: Voyager. People may also remember her start in 1975 on the soap opera Ryan’s Hope as Mary Ryan. A few may even remember that she played St. Elizabeth Ann Seaton in a TV biopic. But most people are not aware that Kate Mulgrew was born & raised in Dubuque, IA. So she naturally supports her hometown team. Here is a publicity shot from last May. & yes, there is the Fighting Saints logo on her top.


Finally, as Doctor Who fans know, the BBC announced the actor who will play the 12th incarnation of the Doctor, Pter Capaldi, another of my paisans. As you can see from this publicity photo releases by the BBC, he is also a Fighting Saints fan. (Note: Yes I know his mother is Scottish, but his father’s family came Picinisco in Italia.  As Mother Angelica once so rightly said “There is no such thing as a half Italian!“.)


So, as you can see, Fighting Saints fans are found not only internationally but throughout time & space.
