It’s not a Hail Mary play, just to clarify. But it’s still a bile sandwich for the Badgers and their faithful, two weeks in a row. Texas Rangers fans and Wisconsin fans should probably start holding meet-ups for support groups. You will get through this. It will pass.

Throughout his star-crossed career, Tim Tebow’s Christianity has been part of the legend. The man with the mouth and mind of an altar boy has the heroic skill to lead Violent Men-Beasts to Victory on the Football Field. It’s compelling, no matter what your relationship with God may or may not be.

Now that Tebow matriculated to the NFL, his exploits are oh-so-perfectly exhibited on Sundays, which is when our nation collectively worships at the national secular church, the NFL.

One of the many great things about sports – including baseball – is that we generally see merit win out over other factors. This is true for individuals and teams. While we may get screwed over at work because of politics, this is less likely – we believe – to happen in the world of sports, because success and failure is so clearly defined.

This meritocratic tendency of sports has helped larger society deal with big problems. At the top of that list is race. Jackie Robinson, Billie Jean King, Tommy Smith, et al.

So, then. Kindly hold your nose at what appears to be a rather crude appreciation of Albert Pujols. The question: Where does Albert rank all time among Latino baseball players?

Would we have a list of greatest black NBA stars?

UC Santa Barbara is a college soccer powerhouse. Dig their defender Tim Pontius’s ridiculous goal from 61 yards around the .37 second mark.
