Some who favor religion believe that
all the answers are in the bible. I sup-
pose those who believe that might be
tempted to reference that document for
a perspective.

I wonder what football fans who are
also religious take from the following:

Exodus 31:15 Six days may work be done;
but in the seventh [is] the sabbath of rest,
holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth [any]
work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be
put to death.

Oh well, maybe trying to combine God
with NFL football isn't as keen of an idea
as many try to make it out to be, but since
the topic has been broached ...
