I’ve always liked Russell Wilson as a football player, going back to the year he played at Wisconsin. But like a lot of athletes, he’s convinced that God specifically shines his light on him and makes sure that he wins, even going so far as to make him temporarily look bad in order to glorify him in the end.
I found Wilson afterward, and asked him about the four picks, and going from the worst game of his life to the most exhilarating in the span of eight minutes of game time.
“That’s God setting it up, to make it so dramatic, so rewarding, so special,” he said, alone for a moment in the locker room before heading out for the night. “I’ve been through a lot in life, and had some ups and downs. It’s what’s led me to this day.”
Immediately after the game, still on the field, when asked how he felt about what really was an incredible comeback to beat the Packers, he cried and said, “God is so good, all the time.” Jesus H. Christ on a pogo stick, I get so tired of this shit. You really think God went out of his way to help you win a football game when he doesn’t lift a finger to help millions of starving children, those beset with horrible diseases and those suffering under terrible oppression? Then you’re not only stupid, you’re selfish and arrogant.
