On God And Sports

In case you missed it: Terrific column from Matt Calkins last week about the role of God in sporting events. Some snippets:

But even the densest among us know that God has more to worry about than a little college football game. There’s pro football, too.

And the conclusion:

But for people to say that the Lord has a particular allegiance? For them to suggest that He looks less favorably upon the runners-up than the victor? For athletes or coaches or fans to imply that prayer, not practice or prowess, is what’s moving that ball across the goal line? God help them.
