Matt Ryans has been selected as Godfather of his sister's child. The family's loved ones have gathered at the church for the Baptism. But a few close friends are not present for the ceremony. Their absence is intentional. Precise. They've got important assignments to carry out. Godfather is a term - used by his friends - one of affection. One of respect. Don Ryans' friends are not present at the Baptism. They are busy.
