During a coffee break today, we ran into some rough-looking characters. If we were living 2,000 years ago, we'd be shaking in our boots.
Instead, we grabbed our camera and snapped a shot of a couple of guys wearing some pretty realistic costumes of Roman guards. At first we thought they might be part of Mayor Steve Bach's new security force to keep pesky reporters and gripy citizens away from City Hall.
In truth, they were downtown to promote The Thorn, New Life Church's enactment of Jesus Christ's condemnation and execution.
The show is being staged at the World Arena for the first time in its many-year history. Dates are March 30 and 31, and April 1. Go here for ticket info.
