What? No Patriots theology watch?
Long-time readers of this site may wonder, after all the fun we had with the Red Sox Theology Watch last fall: Why no Patriots theology watch? I offer a simple explanation, as Mrs Philocrites and I prepare to head off to a Superbowl Party with a group of other clerical types: The Patriots will win. Theology requires at least a dark night of the soul or a passage through the valley of the shadow of death — something Red Sox fans know well — but it doesn't take anything but common sense to root for the Pats.
On the other hand, QB Tom Brady may have jinxed the whole thing by being a prop for the squinty-eyed POTUS. But John Kerry is in a forgiving mood:
"The first thing I'll do when I'm president," Kerry said, "is pardon Brady for going to that State of the Union address."
("Kerry says campaign is striking fear in GOP," David L. Greene, Baltimore Sun 2.1.04)
