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.
