Okay...so maybe we're the only ones doing it... just yet, but it's only a matter of time.
Kuperkaeking How To:

A recent study by The Public Religion Research Institute found that 27 percent of those polled believe that "God plays a role in determining which team wins a sporting event." Also, according to the survey, 53-percent of respondents believe quote "God rewards athletes who have faith with good health and success." Colin Kaepernick may believe that, and the pastor that I spoke to says that may make it true. Executive Pastor Doug Reid of the Capital Christian Center told me that what religion has always done is center people, and help them to focus on their goals.
More than one-quarter of Americans say that on any given Sunday, they are more likely to be in church, while nearly one-in-five say that they are more likely to be watching football.
So what do you think? Does God get a say in the Super Bowl? Will you be praying for the Niners?
After 30 years of feeding those in need, the Sharing God's Bounty program served its one millionth meal Tuesday night.
That meal went to Virginia Daly who works for Charles Sherman Home Two, and brings her developmentally disabled clients to the meal each week, and has for a decade. Her meal was served to her by Jeannie Bastion, one of the three co-founders of the program.
Bastion, with her friends spent the first decade making all of the meals herself. It was only after her co-founders died, and the program became so popular that the group now asks rotating groups to serve the meals.
The program is run out of St. Philomene Church, but general coordinator Jim Mize, says there are no requirements to attend.
”We don’t have any homilies, we don’t have any sermons; we figure that if they can’t see our faith from what we do – they’re not going to see it from what we say,” he said.
The group prides itself on serving dignity with a side of dinner – meaning that the guests don’t stand in line for food, they are served where they sit, and classical and lounge dinner music plays out over the loudspeakers.
Mize helped roll a large birthday cake over to Daly and her clients to blow out the candles while the whole room sang.
