As they say in my native Georgia, there are three religions: Baptist, Methodist, and Football.
That said, Georgia (my alma mater) just beat Purdue 34-27 in overtime OK, it was the Capitol One Bowl, but a bowl game all the same. Woof, woof, woof!
Ate my black-eyed peas in the fourth quarter, so I’m sure that helped.
I know there’s nothing Universalist about this post, but what am I supposed to do? Back the St. Lawrence University Saints, 2-8 for the season? Hell, they’re in the UCAA, with such gridiron powerhouses as Vassar. Or the Tufts University Jumbos? All I can say is they have the ugliest uniforms I’ve ever seen. They had a winning year (5-3) but lost against Williams; something to do with penmanship I suspect.
For real football, I’ll associate ecumenically with the Methodists and Baptists.
