Enough with the Jesus credits, Mike


Let me begin this post with a disclaimer: Michael Redd is the man.

But does he need to begin every single postgame interview by crediting his performance to Jesus' intervention? First of all it makes no sense. You think the big man upstairs is like "Ok, what's on the agenda? I've got that disease problem in Africa; the Iraq mess is getting out of control... oh, shit... does anybody know what time the Bucks game starts tonight?" I mean, come on now.

Second, its starting to sound like a product endorsement. In last night's interview Jon McGlocklin asked him an opening question about the game and Redd started to answer it. Then, you could almost see him thinking "Whoops, didn't get in my Jesus endorsement." So he sort of recited his standard "All credit goes to..." line, but in a strictly pro forma manner. In fact, if he were Catholic I would have swore a priest told him to do it as part of penance. ("Alright Michael, I want you to say 30 Hail Marys, 10 Our Fathers, and mix in at least 5 Jesus endorsements. Ok? Go now and sin no more.") That's how unconvincing his delivery was.

Plus, it does nothing to advance religion... it just makes everyone listening, including poor McGlocklin, extremely uncomfortable. So, how about a moratorium Mike? Jesus will still get his props, but in more appropriate venues.

Just curious ... how do you feel about those who pray and give thanks before meals?

That's a private act of genuine humility and thanksgiving. What Redd is doing is... oh, never mind. I knew I should not have opened this topic. Let me make this clear, though: I am not anti-religious. I just think, like most Americans, there is a place for everything and everything in its proper place. I hope I did not offend you in anyway with my satire. If I did I truly apologize.

Yeah, I keep forgetting. I'll get in touch with the woman who took it tommorow. She's coming down from Green Bay for Opening Night at the Bradley. How did she get tickets? Refer back to the post and you will be able to easily surmise that answer. Ha ha ha.

Did someone tell Michael yet that God was in the bathtub for the Toronto Game?

I am so happy that the Badgers no longer have basketball coaches who talk about the game along with their religious viewpoints.
