Some Fans Will Blame God For Losing The Super Bowl
Does divine intervention play a role in the outcome of sporting events? After losing the Super Bowl 28-24 to the New England Patriots, some fans of the Seattle Seahawks may think so. According to a survey conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute, one in four Americans thinks God has a role in determining the winner of a sports event.
10 percent of respondents said they completely agree that God has a hand in sporting outcomes while 16 percent mostly agree. Still, the vast majority of the 1,012 Americans polled, 72 percent, disagreed that games like the Super Bowl were decided by some higher power. When it comes to deflated footballs, however, they might have a different opinion.
