This is a Pagan take on the situation.
Judge him on his success at football. If he plays good, then good for him. Being faithless, I think it will depend on talent, hard work and luck.
But I’m not a sports fan. I upset Mr. Green when I ask what inning the football game is in. I just admire the drive and sacrifice that athletes bring to the game. I feel kindly to them all, except Curt Schilling who owes Rhode Island some major bucks.
