God may not play dice, but it appears He plays ball

No wonder the world's been such a chaotic and violent place as of late, God has obviously been preoccupied with ensuring that the Colorado Rockies pitch strikes and hit home runs...

From the Washington Post
The Colorado Rockies believe in the Church of Baseball, too, and right now, many of the players and staff think God has smiled on their particular congregation. After winning 21 out of the last 22 games and ascending to the World Series for the first time in franchise history, the only way several team members can explain what's going on is to cite divine intervention...General Manager Dan O'Dowd, in an interview with USA Today before the streak, said: "You look at some of the moves we made and didn't make. You look at some of the games we're winning. Those aren't just a coincidence. God has definitely had a hand in this."

The shadows of superstition sure are popular amongst the cave-dwellers who have yet to step out into the bright light. (I had a recent lecture on Plato's Republic in class, hence the pretentious reference)
