More money than God

The New York Yankees have more money than God. This is for sure. The Yankees, it seems, have little God in them, yet they love to think money wins championships.

They’re right. Sometimes money wins championships. But it doesn’t all the time.

Papi Ortiz is right to point to the sky and thank God when he hits a homerun. Manny Ramirez and Pedro Martinez are right to thank the Lord for good plays on the field. Curt Schilling and Trot Nixon are right to share their faith with the fans. And the pundits are right: Johnny Damon does kind of look like Jesus.

Money has a way of winning championships, but not this time. No, this time, God helped to win the World Series for the 2004 Boston Red Sox.
