USA Today reports that a recent poll found that half of Americans believe that supernatural forces influence the Super Bowl.
Also according to the poll, 26% of those surveyed have prayed to God to help their team. This seems like a really unrealistic expectation if “your team” is the New Jersey Devils, doncha think?
The story didn’t reveal whether real sports conditions were simulated during the polls, for example how many 32 ounce beers the people polled had consumed.
3 Questions That Arise From This Story
1. Will our prayers that the LA Raiders beat the LA Rams in this year’s Superbowl finally be answered? (We really like to bet on long shots.)
2. Is it time to stop praying that the Washington Generals beat the Harlem Globetrotters? This is a tough one, because come, on, God, the Generals are due!
3. Did we miss a part of “Angels In The Outfield” that said “Based On A True Story?” Those angels are always tricking everyone, even when they watch credits of movies.
Yeah, I don’t think NJ Devils have any chance of winning the Superbowl. At least, not until they switch from hockey to football.
We and Martin Brodeur pray that you are correct.
Praying does not work with football teams. Trust me – I’m a Lions fan.
We trust any cat who says they are a Lions fan. Much better than those cats who are all like “No I’m not related to this here lion,” and then everyone gets attacked by the lion.
