Thank you, Gawd.

I’ve never been comfortable with the concept of the Lord taking sides in a sporting event, but I’m obviously in the minority on the subject.


Then again, the GPOOE™ landed a gig on the SEC Network.  That could very well be a sign of divine intervention.

    What about the % that think God coaches their program? And count me in the % that think the GA Dome is cursed.

    i find this to be the definitive discussion on the topic:

    Look, it’s the same percentage that believe elvis is alive. The same percentage that don’t believe evolution. The same that believe 9/11 was an inside job.

    It’s the same damned people.

    I notice the survey only includes Christian denominations. No Jews, Muslims, Hindus or Buddhists were surveyed, apparently.

    Then again, the readings for Mass today included a passage from 1Samuel where the Hebrews do battle with the Philistines and bring the Ark of the Covenant as a battle-aid. The Hebrews are massacred. That is followed by a New Testament reading where a leper says to Jesus if you will it, I can be made clean”

    God can influence football, but that doesn’t mean He wishes to. Even for Notre Dame. 🙂

    Jeff Stilson for the win …

    “I don’t watch football anymore, I gave that up. I got tired of the interviews after the games, because the winning players always give credit to God, and the losers blame themselves. You know, just once I’d like to hear a player say, ‘Yeah, we were in the game, until Jesus made me fumble. He hates our team.'”

    The idea that God chooses to influence football games loses a bit more credibility with me every time Auburn wins.

    In general, I would say that there is no divine intervention, or curses, in sports. But if you asked me after the UT game …


    • I do believe God cares if players are hurt, as well as those 9 million children. I cringe when any player is hurt when I’m watching a game. It’s never too early to pray for player safety. That was our killer this year, and I pray it won’t be a factor next season.

    God allows 9 million children a year to die so of course he’s an Auburn fan.
