Is God a Seahawks Fan?

I think it’s interesting after a football or basketball game, when one of the players stands in front of the microphones and gives credit to God for the win.  “Does that mean that God isn’t a Seahawks fan?” my husband and I asked each other after the last Super Bowl.  I’m seeing this scenario a little differently after a David Richo book that I just finished, on the subject of grace.  The book isn’t about sports — but Mr Richo points out that all through Greek mythology, gods and goddesses hung around the edges of things.  Here’s a quote:  “When a hero was victorious in battle, he ascribed his triumph to divine help.  This was not only an expression of gratitude but a way of preserving himself from hubris, the arrogance of a self-congratulating ego, the denial of the role of divine help in his success.”  I’d like to think that maybe some of the sports after-talk might be about humility.  And just for the record, God is a Seahawks fan. I’m sure of it.
