Beyond a miracle?
As Premier Christianity magazine likes to talk about celebrity gossip, this article should please them; in a recent article they raised the topic of how far should a comedian go in telling religious jokes; this is a religious joke, but at the root of it, the Lord answers why soccer is so bad these days.
Last night our Lord was seen at Old Trafford, Manchester, talking to José Mourinho; it appears that Mr. Mourinho asked the Lord for a miracle to save his job and the club.
The Lord replied, "You asked me for a miracle, but what you propose is beyond a miracle. I can't provide the miracle you need as your team lacks an essential element, that is faith. I will give you some sound advice, teach them to play from the heart, not the wallet. One of your predecessors (Ron Atkinson) made the same mistake in trying to buy success; he forgot the most successful team was built from the ruins of the Munich Air disaster by Sir Matt Busby because his team believed in themselves, not who looked best on the pitch or who got paid the most."
