  1. Really interesting points here. I’m not a sports fan at all but I think you can see the same patterns you mention here (the confirmation bias) playing out across the board – that people credit God for their successes or for good things happening, but get much more wishy-washy about God’s presence or absence when things go bad. That’s where that “everything happens for a reason” and “God works in mysterious ways” language gets regurgitated.

  2. He plays for the Jets. That is enough for me to be in the dislike group.

  3. As a Christian, I seriously doubt that God is concerned about which team wins a football game. In fact, the very idea seems to be blasphemous.
