ST. LOUIS - You win some and you lose some. But when the 2011 Major League Baseball World Series was finished, baseball fans were relieved that they did not have to continue hearing about what player did what in game so and so and who was distracted because of the big bad squirrel all of which was sponsored by some great automaker company.
In a decisive victory the St. Louis Cardinals made their statement about who they thought was best in baseball, or at least that they were better than the Texas Rangers. (No one really knows if they could beat the teams they didn't play due to early playoff elimination.)
But one thing is for sure, baseball fans, baseball umpires, baseball announcers, baseball writers, and the New York Yankees were glad that professional baseball could begin again after a short hiatus of a few weeks now.
In a rare admission from a last minute social group formed on Twitter named the Atheists of Sport, the group leader told us that they thanked God that baseball was finally over.
Normally, fans speak their mind individually on sports radio, sports television, or on T-shirts. However, this group wanted to bring a message of solidarity and represent a voice that was greater than one of the voices of a New York Yankee fan.
The group leader also added that God was normally a subject that the group would never mix with anything in life let alone sports but that this was a mere coincidence. It first sounded like damage control and then saving face but eventually it led to honesty.
It all began when someone's smartphone auto-corrected the word Bud for God. (Bud Selig is the baseball's commissioner who is responsible for going to all the games and enjoying free hotdogs and beer).
As soon as the group leader posted their Tweet that's when the mistake was spotted. Unfortunately, people began sharing that remark on Facebook, and it received many more likes than You Tubes 'Charlie bit my finger' video.
No word yet if other belief systems consider this baseball ending intervention as God inspired or God whatsoever. But if you ask Harold Camping he's predicting baseball will continue after the world is over.
