More paganism

I saw this the other day, and then lost the reference until I saw it again in print. It seems to follow nicely from the guy who reads pigs' spleens:

1 in 5 Sports fans who say they do things in an attempt to bring good luck to their favorite team or avoid jinxing them.

1 in 4 College basketball fans who say this. They are the most likely fans to say so.

Interesting, isn't it? We laugh when we hear that sports events in the 2/3 world are sometimes canceled because of people attempting magical spells over the results, and yet 20-25% of the U.S. population is doing essentially the same thing!

How many times do we have to see stuff like this before we realize that unregenerate humanity is totally depraved; it is only by the freely available grace of God that anyone can be redeemed from their deadly curvatus in se (curved in on oneself).

We could focus on humanity being unregenerate, but I would recommend instead we just go ahead and make sports officially recognized as religions.

Baseball, of course, is the one, true mother sport. All other sports are apostate.
