Here at SCFOM, we like our sports. What we don’t like, though, is the terrible habit athletes have of thanking God for every single thing they do. David Ortiz hits a home run; thanks God. Kurt Warner wins the Super Bowl; thanks God. Floyd Mayweather punches another man in the head for 10 rounds; thanks God.
It’s all so stupid, the idea that God wants Floyd Mayweather to win more than his poor opponent or that he wants David Ortiz to get hits against the Yankees (possible). But why doesn’t the proverbial shoe ever go on the other foot? Why doesn’t anyone ever call out God when something terrible happens?
Enter Buffalo Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson:
Yep, he straight cold dropped a pass that would’ve given the lowly Bills a win over the vaunted Steelers. So what’s the natural response after a little time for reflection?
If you don’t love this, you just don’t love sports. Finally, someone to look up to.
