So God, creator of the universe and master of all things, took time off from his busy schedule of making hurricanes and hunchbacked babies to guide that football right into David Tyree’s hands. And why not? It only makes sense that God would be watching the Superbowl. After all, the Lord of Hosts has the best skybox of them all, doesn’t he?
In honor of Tyree, I’m starting a new category: Age of Miracles. Please alert me whenever the Almighty gets name-checked for helping out on things like ball games, stadium concerts and Virgin Mary-shaped oil slicks in Jiffy Lubes.
