Does God care who wins a football game?

The fact that God didn’t help Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow (in photo) defeat the New England Patriots in Saturday’s NFL playoff game was no surprise to former NFL quarterback Fran Tarkenton. “I never understood why God would care who won a game between my team and another,” he wrote in the Wall Street Journal, adding that there are far more important things going on in the world. That said, Tarkenton found it refreshing that the chatter around the NFL has been about a great athlete with great character and “not about more arrests and bad behavior from our presumptive ‘heroes.’”
