Thoughts while shaving

Does God have favorite sports teams?  You see it all the time, athletes pointing to the heavens, blessing themselves, in silent prayer, etc., praying for that winning homerun, touchdown, goal, or winning basket at the buzzer. If they donít win the game is it Godís fault? Maybe GOD was rooting for the other team. If God doesnít work, they try superstition. Players grow their hair, beards, mustaches, carry good luck charms, wear the same dirty clothes for the duration, etc. We all know family members or friends who do likewise and also sit or stand in the same position during a game depending on which way the game is going. I heard of a case where a family member couldnít come in his own house during a critical period in a game on TV and almost froze to death waiting. Diehard fans also make those watching the game with him, assume the same position for long periods of time after a score, anticipating another score...OR ELSE!!!!
