Those Guys Are AWESOME
It apparently took a football writer, Peter King, to notice this quote from Johnny Damon. Writes His Royal Highness:
"Quote of the Week
'It's incredible. What more can you ask for? Even being mentioned in the same sentence as Jesus or God ... I mean, those guys are awesome. I'm just a knucklehead.'
-- Red Sox outfielder Johnny Damon, who, by all appearances, actually answered a question in Boston Magazine about his Jesus-like appearance seriously.
And you wonder why Tony Kornheiser doesn't have athletes on his show. Why reporters ask questions about non-sports-related topics is beyond me.
That said, Mr. Damon is on to something. The Nats really are two players away from the NL East division crown. But where would the Almighty play on a Baseball team? (Preliminary thought - middle infield. He's got the whole world in His hands).
