God probably isn’t a big football fan, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suggested Tuesday during a radio interview.
Still feeling the sting of defeat from the Packers’ loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC championship game Sunday, Rodgers – who has said he is religious – was asked if such a big loss shakes his faith, since it is commonplace for athletes to thank God or to say God intervened when they win.
Rodgers didn’t mince words.
“I don’t think God cares a whole lot about the outcome,” Rodgers said. “He cares about the people involved, but I don’t think he’s a big football fan.”
While that statement may not seem noteworthy to some, it may raise eyebrows.
Rarely does an athlete, especially a professional, say God had nothing to do with the outcome of a game.
