Are You There God? It's Me, Jeremiah

There was a puff piece on today about Philadelphia Eagles middle linebacker Jeremiah Trotter's career resurgence after returning to the Eagles following a failed stint in Washington. Here is what Trotter had to say as to why he is now back with the Eagles, starting in the Super Bowl this Sunday:

"I went through training camp, preseason and the first couple of games, and I questioned God...I was like: Are you sure this is the place you wanted me to come? I just continued to pray and trust Him. And everything worked out."

A prudent move since, as everyone knows, God goes out of His way to do special favors for athletes and popular musicians. As it has been famously said, He works in mysterious ways. Mysterious ways that single out athletes and musicians for riches, fame and groupies. Moreover, when it comes to sports, God tends to take sides, and my sources tell me that this year, He's pulling for the Eagles. Things are looking good, Jeremiah. Real good.

Of course, to restore the yin-yang in the universe, when God giveth (Trotter, other Eagles, etc.) and God must taketh away (e.g., the tsunami wave that killed over 200,000 non-football playing Asians and Africans). But, heck, if the Trotter gets a ring, it'll all be worth it.

I wonder if Trotter will finally get his period.

You're so bitter. Why not use Michael Jackson as the example of what is taken away.

Did you see the VHI special about Michael Jackson's childhood? Creepy, especially the allegation that he was scared away from sex because he had to watch his brothers schtump groupies. Doesn't explain his pederasty (inexcusable), but I am convinced he is real f-ed up.
