God Doesn't Care Who Wins The Patriots Game

Here's a sign seen outside the United Church of Christ:
I heard your prayer, I just

don't care who wins the game

And then there's this Athlete's Prayer:
God, let me play well but fairly.
Help me to learn something that matters
once the game is over.
Let competition make me strong but never hostile.
Always let me help my opponent up.
Never catch me rejoicing in the adversity of others.
If I know victory, allow me to be happy; if I am denied, keep me from envy.
Remind me that sports are just games.
If through athletics I set an example,
let it be a good one.
Saint Sebastian: Patron Saint of athletes.

Burying a statuette of St. Joseph is not going to help the Patriots win.

Patron Saints - The Big List.

The Boondock Saints - Great Movie.
