And while I think about it, there is some classic auto racing going on over by Lord March's digs.  That man loves him some old cars and motorcycles, as well as new cars and motorcycles, and at this moment, his Goodwood Member's Meeting is in full swing, albeit in the rain and/or snow!

Oh, hell, of course religion is hip-deep in sports!  How many times has the FFRF had to step in to squelch pre-game prayers, sponsored by multiple schools?  On top of that, do da name Tim Tebow strike a familiar note?  Thanking god for touchdowns, home runs, or shots sunk at the buzzer is all but Standard Operating Procedure.

And about as effective as a hole in the head!

If you think there is no religion involved with sports, think again.

While watching the NCAA basketball tourney, I saw Duke's Coach K silently pray and cross himself before a game. Loyola-Chicago has a 98 year old nun in a wheel chair that gives a pre-game prayer to the players. They upset the favored team, so, of course, the prayer worked. Today's another story. And, I read a player's grandmother's lips as she said "Praise the Lord" after a winning basket.

There are over 64 teams in the tournament. All but one will lose. If they all prayed to win, the percentage of success is pretty low!!

Sort of like "Hang with Friends", this is a catch-all group that covers anything and everything regarding sports. I started it because I'm a sports fan, and there wasn't any group that gave me and others an opportunity to talk sports. I hereby invite one and all to join and participate.

So, how's your NCAA tournament bracket doing so far?! I haven't lost a game, but that's because I didn't fill one out! Less stressful.
