In Honor of the Super Bowl: God on Sports

Since we are doomed to see lots of players moronically thanking the gods for interfering in the competition and aiding their side (because obviously the omnipotent creator of the universe has nothing else to do), I thought we could comfort ourselves with a couple of quotes on the subject:

"God fights on the side with the best artillery."
-Napoleon Bonaparte

"Prayer works best if you have
larger players."
--Vince Lombardi

"(because obviously the omnipotent creator of the universe has nothing else to do),"

Yes, God is busy taking on the creationists in Texas.

I must say that I was happy that the Cards did not win the Superbowl in large part because I did not want to hear Warner yammering on about how God made it possible.

Looks like God wasn't happy with Warner and decided to punish the entire team..

Oh wait - I forgot how is ACTUALLY works:

If you pray and you win, then glory goes to God

if you pray and you lose, then it is your own fault

What a set up!

You got it. Isn't that great? If God kills your neighors in a hurricane, but spares you, you should praise him. Ditto for the people in that airplane that crashed. It's the ultimate No True Scotsman Fallacy.
