God is apparently a basketball fan.
From last week, an article in the New York Times about sham prep schools whose only purpose is to give aspiring basketball players a bogus diploma to get them into college.
And what's so amusing about that? Well, the names of some of those bogus schools: Redemption Christian Academy, Lutheran Christian Academy, Genesis One Christian Academy, God's Academy, ...
Does anyone else see the common theme here?
AFTERSNARK: I'm thinking that, if you call your school "God's Academy," you best have one muthafuckin', kick-ass hoops team to back that up with.
SPEAKING OF REALLY DUMB ATHLETES, there's a raging controversy at the moment based on U of Texas superstar quarterback and Rose Bowl-winning Vince Young scoring disastrously low on the Wonderlic intelligence test at the recent NFL combine, as you can read here.
As you can read in that piece, out of a maximum of 50, most teams would like their potential quarterbacks to score in the 30s somewhere. According to reports out of the combine, Young scored a six on his first attempt, and a 16 on a re-test. This is for a college graduate.
Feel free to take a shot at some sample Wonderlic questions here.
