    There were no doubt Cardinals fans praying too? Are you suggesting that god
    favored the Sox? This reminds me of Jon Stewart's witful observation that
    when athletes "hit a home run" they always "point up". But when the commit
    an error, or strike out, "why don't they point up then?" Or even point down??

    Perhaps the headline in St. Louis today should run, "God Deems Cardinals
    Unworthy of World Series Win, Decides Sox More Faithful".

    Now if we could only get god off sports betting for a while, to look at
    other important global matters...
