It Takes Balls, Redux

Congratulations to the St. Louis Cardinals, who won the World Series this weekend four games to one over the Detroit Tigers.

You might notice that the Colorado Rockies were not the world champions after all — not surprisingly to most baseball fans, but perhaps surprising to the Man Upstairs himself.

As you might recall, earlier we at Holier Than Thou noted that the Rockies consider themselves to be a Christian team, with weekly prayer meetings, Biblical inscriptions around the clubhouse and a ban on Playboy magazine.

In fact, team officials had gone so far as to say that their faith has paid off on the playing field, with God having a direct hand in several of the team’s big wins.

Granted, God obviously didn’t have a hand in enough wins for the Rockies to claim the World Series crown. So, just for the record, WHERE did the Colorado Rockies finish up the season in the National League West?

A. First Place
B. Second Place
C. Third Place
D. Last Place

D: Yes, this one was perhaps a bit too easy, but the Rockies did finish in the National League West cellar, behind the Padres, Dodgers, Giants and Diamondbacks.

So, is God a Dodgers fan, a Cardinals fan, does He have better things to do than worry about baseball, or was He perhaps looking to punish those in baseball who would commit the deadly sin of Pride by suggesting God was on their side?

We’ll leave that one for you to decide…

The Cardinals are the most religious team on the planet. They're off to Rome to meet with the Pope after winning the series.
