I don't usually post my blog's Monday culture column here, but I think my fellow Ricocheteers might enjoy this one on baseball players pointing to the sky after a hit:
Media wise men – by which I mean fools – frequently attack religious worship on the ballfield. I’ve run across any number of columns in which sportswriters and others take a snarky, condescending approach to athletes who pray. Do they think God cares who wins? Do they lose their faith when they strike out? What do they do when an atheist outperforms them? And so on.
Interesting questions, all of which miss the point.
For those who are interested, the rest is here.
