Daniel brought up something that has bothered me for years. Why do people insist on thanking God for winning a game or a player thanking God for having a good game? It’s moronic. If there is a God, I seriously doubt they have NOTHING BETTER TO DO than to manage a sporing event.
Secondly, if you have the balls to thank God for the winning catch, interception, or anything else related to the game, why don’t you thank God when those things don’t happen? Why not blame God when you lose? Why not blame God when you throw an interception, fumble the ball, or get hurt? Does God not get involved with bad things like that (that must be the work of the devil)?
Many players want to thank God for getting to the Super Bowl, World Series, or other sports finals. What about the other teams that didn’t make the playoffs or lost in the last round? Why didn’t God help them win?
They ought to be thanking their spouse and children who supported them while they were out-of-town and took care of the house, car, pets, and PTA meetings you weren’t around to attend. That’s in addition to taking care of the children who only see their daddy during home games or off season. How about thanking the fans for the high prices they have to pay to support your undeserving salary. How about the team owner who paid an arm and leg to sign you to a contract. How about apologizing to your kids for missing their play recital and baseball games? No, none of that is worth mentioning. We must thank God because without him, your nothing.
It’s foolishness and it makes those people sound like complete morons. Get a clue and stop the madness!!!
