Well said, Geno.

Obviously. God likes watching a dunkfest much more than a bunch of fundamentals.

I love this guy.

Do you love Jesus?  That's nice.  You can talk to him all you want in the privacy of your own home.  Please don't involve me in your delusional fantasies.

And God has punished his sass with... an 86.5% win percentage and two gold medal Olympic wins.  Which kinda supports his statement regarding the opinions of deities on jumpshots.

what did the assistant say to start this mess?
 
2014-01-18 01:09:12 PM
I agreed with him...right up until...

"But all of those people who had a heart attack over what was said by our [assistant football coach] should go to whatever church or synagogue or mosque they belong and ask for forgiveness."

Uh, you realize that most of the people who "had a heart attack" about this don't go to a church, or synagogue, or mosque. That's the whole farking point.

derpy: what did the assistant say to start this mess?


Something along the lines of "Jesus will be a part of our huddle". And then like the UConn president and a bunch of other higher-ups smacked him down publicly, and I'm guessing that a bunch of religious leaders said "Help Help we're being repressed!", and because this makes for good copy the media is polling every individual in America about what they think...etc etc.

FTFC: If you asked me the religion of my players, I would say I have no idea. I really don't care. It's none of my business.

This. It's not that I hate religion, I just don't care. And as soon as religious people stop proselytizing, I'll stop saying how much I don't care.  But for now, I just want to shout it from the rooftops how much I don't care.

I mean, do you want to know what I believe? Yeah, I didn't think so.

I've never been stalked by an evangelical Jew, not even Jesus himself.

It's so nice to be thought of! It's just like getting a non-denominational Christmas card. Awwww penguins!

And no one had a heart attack over it. More like, people finally feel like they can speak up about it, and those who have never been challenged over it before don't know how to deal with it.

They don't want to know what you believe; they're just listening like a car salesman for what approach will best lure you in. Except a car salesman is somewhat less likely to call you a scumbag who will suffer in perpetuity if you don't buy a car.

i understand folks not wanting to watching women's athletics. but why do so many douchenozzles get their tighties in a bunch about the fact that they exist and feel the need to mock/insult (particularly with the shemale/lesbo shiat) those who participate in women's athletics?

Didn't a Bills WR do that a couple of years back? I want to say he blamed God for a big drop.
 
2014-01-18 05:43:55 PM
Some athlete should start thanking Satan after big wins. I mean, if God and Satan are locked in this eternal struggle for supremacy, and every other athlete is vying for God's attention, being the lone guy with Satan by your side would be a huge boost. Like Bo Jackson in Tecmo bowl  kind of a boost. Study it out.

Stevie Johnson - would have been a game winning catch over the hugely-favored Steelers... Went and twitted (or whatever the word is) about how he praises God all the time but "this is how you do me" or something (I presume that refers to God farking him?).

Nice one, Geno

Why is it everybody hates successful coaches/managers? Or try to denigrate their success - especially if they aren't to humble about it.  Geno....Summit.....Coach K.....all the way back to John McGraw...Casey....they all go, "Oh he had the horses"   "He'd BETTER win with that talent", blah blah blah. How many teams have won with average or BAD talent?  And how many teams with 'talent', seemingly never win the big ones?
