A quarter of Americans say God will help decide the Super Bowl

I wonder if both teams pray equally hard, are equally pious and penitent, God will not interfere and it would just be about the actual skill of the players?

Otherwise it's just religious doping if they involve God as a third party.

And out of this crust, put out your thrust, do what you must, try not to rust, as you turn to dust.

The Vanu Sovereignty won the Planetside Ultimate Empire Showdown in terms of combat, despite having poor prospects according to many. It must've been the will of Vanu.

What I wonder is do these people think it's the number of prayers that decide games, the earnesty of the prayers, or who does the praying? Quality vs quantity.

Who are the teams playing this year, anyway?

What ranking did that Tebow kid's team come in this year (to make it board relative)?

Or a combination of all 3, or a "God's will be done" sort of thing in which wherever the pieces fall, God wanted it that way.

Yeah a quarter of American's are idiots. Even if there is a god, I'm pretty damn sure he has better things to do than rig a sports game.
