Even God is upset over last Saturday's game
Or at least according to "Reverend Dan," a frequent caller on The Ed Schultz Show. A non-verbatim excerpt from today's show (I'm going off memory here), which I caught while on my way to work this afternoon:
"God is a Sooners fan. Oklahoma is A-OK in His book. There were demons on that Oregon football field on Saturday, demons. They won the game for the Ducks! Oh, and the world will end on December 27th at 3 PM Eastern Standard Time!"
At that point Schultz politely cut him off. No wonder that one official is fearing for the life of both him and his kids.
Morale of this story: Americans take professional sports far, far too seriously. Unlike Europeans, for example.
