Canadian Thoughts: Theology and Sports.

August 27, 2008 at 7:37 pm 4 comments

I wonder if any hyper-religious types are noticing how well the Major League Baseball team, the Tampa Bay Rays are doing this year. Up until this current season the team had gone by the name DEVIL Rays. Do you know how many times the team made the playoffs previous to this season?


It looks likely that the Rays will reach the playoffs for the first time since their inception into the league in 1998. You can’t blame them turning to religion and removing the Devil part of their name, really, since they play in the American League’s Eastern Division, which includes the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. It has been obvious for years that only through divine intervention will any other team in the East make the playoffs.

Since the connection to religion is so obvious in this case, what does it mean that the NHL team, the New Jersey Devils, have had a lot of success since moving to New Jersey from Colorado (then known as the Rockies) in 1982? The team has managed to win three Stanley Cups all the while flaunting the name DEVIL. What kind of deal do the owners of this team have, and with whom did they make it?

Pat Robertson, where are you? We need guidance.

(It is rumoured that during the next NBA expansion, they will only admit a franchise willing to take the name Evil Devil Sex Fiend Worshipers)

    So obvious and yet I didn’t think of it myself. That has to be it. With the Rays in the same division as the Yankees, I’m enjoying the elimination of the Yankees from the post season and especially the utter joy the media seems to take with every Alex Rodriguez failure. Someone joked Madonna put a Kabbala curse on him.

    I’m glad to see the Yankees being eliminated too. It’s good to see a different team from the East make it to the playoffs. It’s too bad it wasn’t the Jays, though.
