Seeking Help from Above

I’m a big fan of photo-ops that illustrate the impressive broadening of Washington’s passion for pucks.

the spirituality of some of the region's puckheads is perhaps on the rise as the Caps' springtime woes mount

This particular image also seems to invite the discussion: Should we trouble a busy God these days with our postseason puck distress? Of course not. There are at least 5,000 matters more important before Him — wars and famine, dictators and disaster displacement. To the extent that He is taking a look at help requests from sports fans, surely Cubs’ fans are ahead of us. And as a fanbase, we might also take the magnanimous route and in our worship have Him help out our neighbor Redskins’ fans first. They really need the help. But a productive power play and some better line changes isn’t calling for a miracle, is it?

    Dear God that is awesome.

    Old school, too … just like the Old Testament.

    Heh… it doesn’t get much older-school than that!

    Yeah, at least as productive a power play as the Bruins (my wife’s Boston Irish – it’s killing her!)

  4. That’s fantastic!

    Redskins fans can wait. They’ve had championships, and Caps fans haven’t. We need divine intervention more than they do.

    Leonsis, who was raised Greek Orthodox and has said his faith was largely shaped by the Jesuits, said in an interview, “The base of any religion is happiness” — and to me, that would include at least one Cup in my lifetime.
