    I'm sorry I find it so hilarious. The Golden Gophers versus the Nittany Lions.

    Tuesday (Goldy Gopher behaving badly?) edition: Wha' Happened? | StarTribune.com

    Players, presumably Christian, should find a more discreet place for prayer, pace Jesus' instructions. Not three feet from the opposing team's cheerleaders and mascot.

    The "Hail, Jesus" confabs at the end of games are all right, although a little self-promoting and sanctimonious for my taste.

    Somewhere in here is a joke about throwing Christians to the lions, I know it!

    Are you trying to tell me Jesus Christ can't hit a curveball?




    I guess the player is praying for his safety, and for everyone to leave the game unijured. But far too often I hear these guys CREDIT God, or Jesus with a win. When in reality they must aslo believe that God or Jesus wanted the other team to lose...etc.


    If God exists, I think he has more important things to be concerned with than Minnesota Vs. Penn State...Infact I think we all can agree that God is currently occupied by preparing his players to leave for London to play the BUCs this weekend.


    You'd THINK Holy Cross would never lose a game...

    Or Notre Dame would be undefeated

    Or BYU would.....wait....




    nevermind.

    I was slightly offended. I don't think that the mascot should have done that. Their job isn't to mock specific players. This player was more than likely praying that he would play well and remain uninjured throughout the game. The fact that a school mascot would mock a player for prayer, its kind of wrong. I have no problem with mascots mocking the team for things that they do, but with something as sensitive as religion, it was a little bit too much.

    Once...just ONCE!...I like to hear a player blame God/ Jesus for making them lose a game.

    "Well, Suzie, we played harder and better, score more ...while the other team sucked and made fun of our parents and girlfriends...but somehow they beat us 21-20!

    I blame my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Thanks for nothing, GOD!"
