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.'

Alternative headline: 25% of Americans have a sorely mistaken understanding of their deity as described by their scriptures.

I don't remember the part of the Bible where Jesus went to the chariot races and helped the Jew driver beat the Roman.

Bullshiat. That isn't God, it's me. My proximity to the field creates a parallel connection between the bottle and the ball. The outward facing label simulates a smoother contact surface for the kicker.

I hope he hates David Akers, that sky-pointing dipshiat.

While the vast majority of that 25% are nominally Christian (I'd bet), you gotta figure at least a dozen of them really do believe in a capricious god that intentionally starves Somali kids and forced Mark Sanchez's butt fumble.

I have a problem with the article's analysis. They say the results reflect many Americans' belief in a very active God. However, 27% of Americans thought God played a role, while only 29% of Catholics and 19% of Protestants thought this. A majority of Catholics aren't exactly practicing. Since a lower percent of protestants believe God plays a role than the American average, my takeaway is that a lot of non-religious people are saying God plays a role, while a fair number of religious people say otherwise.

/not a statistician
/my analysis probably sucks too

No, it's because I have a lucky spot on a lucky couch. The last time I sat there, the 49ers won the Super Bowl.

Sad this wasn't an article from the Onion.

Well if God exists he definitely watches football. What's he doing on Sunday that he can't watch football?

And anyone who watches football hates the kicker.

So ipso facto, QED, per se, mens rea, God hates kickers. If he exists.

If God picks who wins in sports games, God is a pretty big dick. And if that' really is the case, let's go back to worshiping the Greek gods. Those gods regularly demonstrated caprice, arrogance, and pride -- but there was more than one, so at least each team could have their own god. Fair is fair.

If you believe in the talking snake and whether your omniscient god cares how much you masturbate, why wouldn't you believe this?

God doesn't pick the winners. The Commissioners do. And they fine and suspend God for interfering.

Two Superbowl titles belonging to Adam Vinatieri's foot would refute that.
