Why do people believe that God cares about sports
Edited on Tue Oct-07-03 09:23 AM by soleft
And even if God did care about sports, why God would be biased for one team over another. I was really glad to hear about the Colts dramatic comeback, mostly because I picked them in my pool, but when I read this quote by Tony Dungy, it just made me kind of cringe. Mostly because this is the same kind of crap that makes people think God wants them to go blow things up.

And did you ever notice, when a team loses, no one ever says, Man, God must have really hated us today.

Unless of course he thinks Peyton Manning is God.

"Dungy, celebrating his 48th birthday, was as surprised as Manning to score so many points against one of the great defenses in the league.

"These guys just never gave up. That's what I like about us," Dungy said. "We've got great chemistry and I just had a feeling the Lord was going to do something, and he certainly did."

2. They thank God for touchdowns but don't blame God for fumbles
If you think that made you cringe you should have heard Trot Nixon after he hit the game winning homer the other night.

God
Lord
Jesus Christ our savior
In his honor

That type of stuff.
