I’m a big fan of photo-ops that illustrate the impressive broadening of Washington’s passion for pucks.
This particular image also seems to invite the discussion: Should we trouble a busy God these days with our postseason puck distress? Of course not. There are at least 5,000 matters more important before Him — wars and famine, dictators and disaster displacement. To the extent that He is taking a look at help requests from sports fans, surely Cubs’ fans are ahead of us. And as a fanbase, we might also take the magnanimous route and in our worship have Him help out our neighbor Redskins’ fans first. They really need the help. But a productive power play and some better line changes isn’t calling for a miracle, is it?
