Are You There, Athletes? It's Me, God

One Great Season

Hey, athletes, it's God here (supreme being, the OMG, creator of all that is seen and unseen, yada yada). How's your week going? Super. That's nice to hear. OK, glad everyone is good. 

Um, this is a little awkward, but I just wanted to address something that's been bothering me and would love to chat before it becomes a bigger deal than it needs to be. I'm not really sure how to approach this but — oh hell, I'll just come right out and say it — can you guys please stop pointing up at Heaven when you do something "good" on the field?

The players in this particular game were sporting throwback uniforms from the 1920s, and I thought (light bulb!), how about an entire throwback day at the old ballpark? Why should the players have all the fun? We the fans could have a special night where everyone wears old-timey clothes and says old-timey things like, "Give 'em the full mustard, boy-o," or "Smoke that apple into the garden."
