Jump shots for Jesus

Best sports headline ever: Falcons set to face Word of God

For whatever religious reasons Word of God Christian Academy adopted its name, it's a brilliant move in athletic terms. Who can possibly play Word of God without coming off like a heretic? Even other religious schools look bad by comparison, regardless of whether they win or lose.

Say, for instance, Springfield Catholic went head-to-dogmatic-head with Word of God. If the former wins, here's your headline:

"Catholic defies Word of God"

If Word of God wins, the headline reads thus:

"Catholic efforts trumped by Word of God"

Pretty slick, fellas. W! O! R-D! Up!

Stacy knew what he was doing, right?

I don't think Stacy wrote the headline, but he may have suggested it. He usually rolls out some good ones.

It's like the headline that once appeared in the church bulletin when our church basketball team in Washington state defeated the local Lutheran church.

"New Horizons Church Kills Christ Our Redeemer"
