Slappy, I have always wondered that myself. Thank you. Hopefully we'll get an answer.

Because when good things happen depending on how the player was brought up he will thank God/Jesus.

That's an old comedy routine. I forgot who did it....

"Whenever an athlete wins, he thanks Jesus. 'Jesus watched over me and allowed me to score.'

What, Jesus doesn't like the other team? And how come you never hear an athlete say, 'Well....we would have won the game, but JESUS made me fumble!'"

:lol:

This observation would make a great scene in Family Guy:

Football Announcer: "The running back has the ball. This could win the game. He's at the 40...30...20...10!.."

running backs leg mysteriously snaps and he falls to the ground.

Announcer: "Oh and he's fumbled the ball at the 1 yard line. Game over!"

Football Player: *holding leg and crying* "Jesus...whhhhyyyy??!!"

Cut to shot of Jesus sitting in the stands holding a voodoo doll..with an evil grin on his face...wearing the other teams jersey. *cue ominous string music*

Anyone watch Rescue Me?

Jesus was playing shortstop in their softball game this week during one of Denis Leary's frequent hallucinations.

Turned a NICE double play! :lol:

To tell you the truth, when an athlete truly is thankful for how he has performed usually accepts failure as God's plan after a terrible performance.

Of coarse there are those people who thank God when they perform well even if they don't mean it. But the athletes that really feel blessed and believe in him will thank Jesus during victory and quietly trust him in defeat.

I think we all need to understand that God is not making you do anything. God KNOWS what you are going to do, but its you that is doing it. I am religious and believe in God, but its not like God is some dude with a voodoo doll that sits there choosing what you do, no thats not it. Trackstar, I think youve had the best explanation yet it seems.

Good post. But I think it would be funny to see a player in a news conference just come out and say "It's God's fault!".

My pet peeve: listen to how many times pro atheltes say, "You know what I mean," after they answer a question....some NBA players say it at least 15 times in a row. Wasssupwitdat???? :confused:
