Super Bowl XVIIIMXVV: "God's Team" Vs. Da Bears

If you heard the post game interviews with Colts' Owner Irsay and their coach Tony Dungy, you would understand that it was the Lord (that's jus another word for God, for you non-church going heathens) who was instrumental in the Colts win over the Patriots.

So while some are picking the Bears to win the Super Bowl, they are erring in analyzing the game as an 11-on-11 affair. In fact, the Colts have an awesome 12th man.

UPDATE: ESPN has more on the "Divine Intervention" drive that has landed the Colts in the Super Bowl:

So how did Manning begin the game-winning drive in the Colts' improbable 38-34 win over the New England Patriots here on Sunday night?

By seeking help from above.

"I said a little prayer there on that last drive," Manning acknowledged of a possession that culminated in the winning 3-yard touchdown run by rookie tailback Joseph Addai with just one minute remaining. "I don't know if you're supposed to pray or not in those kinds of situations, but I did."

Prayer answered, right? Well, kind of.

Divine intervention manifests itself in many ways. On the do-or-die drive, in an instant-classic AFC Championship Game that featured two touchdowns by offensive linemen on fumble recoveries and a touchdown catch by a defensive tackle, it came for Manning and the Colts from an unlikely source in backup tight end Bryan Fletcher.

That's so cool! God - ever the trickster - manifested himself as a back-up tight end to ensure the Colts' victory.

    your cynical post is obviously the work of a heathen.

    God provides personal inspiration to athletes. You secular humanists just don't get it.

    you'd do better spending your Sundays in church, and not on your ass watching football.

  • church lady,

    I just don't think God was rooting for the Colts over the Patriots.

    can't you read?

    As I wrote, God provides personal inspiration to athletes. He doesn't root for some teams to win. Despite what some coaches' words imply to your pea brain.

    Do you take everything literally? Do you think John Lennon was the Walrus?

  • I might choose to believe in a God that prefers the Colts over the Patriots. Especially if He (She?) also prefers the Bears over the Packers.
