Kurt Warner: "God Is To Blame For This Loss"

Sun Feb 01, 2009 at 11:05:36 PM PST
Tampa, FL (KE) -- Kurt Warner, the 37-year-old veteran quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals, seemed to blame the Christian God for the team's heartbreaking loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday night's Superbowl XLIII. Speaking to a pool of gathered reporters outside the team's locker room, Warner stated, "I always credit God for my victories and earlier this week I said I had an advantage in tonight's game because of the power of Jesus. Clearly, however, Jesus let me down. And so I am not responsible for tonight's loss. If you want someone to blame, this one is 100% on the man upstairs."

For a while, it appeared that God would give the Cardinals their first Superbowl win in franchise history. But with time running out at the end of the second half, the Steelers, trailing by a field goal, managed to score the game-winning touchdown.

"Did you see the way that Santonio Holmes came down with that ball?" Warner asked sports reporters incredulously after the Superbowl. "Both his feet touched the inside of the endzone before he went flying out of bounds. You can clearly tell that invisible angels pushed his toes into the turf to give him that touchdown completion. Clearly, God made us lose."

God's abandonment of Kurt Warner and the Arizona Cardinals was foreshadowed at the end of the first half, when Warner attempted a touchdown pass from the Steelers' one yard line, which was intercepted by Harrison and run back for a 100-yeard interception return and a touchdown. "That's really when I started to suspect that God and Jesus had forsaken me," Warner admits. "I walked in the faith of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. And how does he repay me? By feeding the ****ing ball to Harrison and turning a Cardinal touchdown into a Steeler touchdown like it was water turning into wine."

Warner is also quick to notice that if that play had not been intercepted, the Cardinals would have won by ten points instead of losing by four. "God cost us the Superbowl," Warner stated, matter-of-factly. "It's as simple as that."

This is outlandish, to the point of over the top silliness. So far, I can find only one media outlet that is carrying this thing, the DailyKos. I almost thought this was an Onion story.

Until a major news outlet carries this story, I am calling BS on this.

I would hope most people would be able to recognize snark when it's this over-the-top. I thought it was funny.
