Duke wins; where is God?



I don’t want to question God, but I’ve got to wonder what his logic was tonight.

Of course, by tonight I mean the NCAA men’s basketball championship. Right down to the wire there were two possible outcomes. One beautiful, the other terrible.

And instead of the little mid-western Christian school win, the title went to the pompous punks from the south. Devils, no less.

As the Sports Guy pointed out:

Thank God for the Saints. We almost had Lakers-Yanks-Colts-Duke consecutive titles. Or as it’s also known, the apocalypse.

Four years ago I had to stomach UCLA getting stomped on in the championship game by Florida. I feel at least as ill now. I can’t imagine what Gordon Hayward is going through—a few inches from immortality. He’ll have to settle for being a first-round draft pick and making a cool million or so next season.
