What Would Carmelo Do?

Wear your blended religiofanaticism openly with one of these devotional sports jerseys from Christian Throwback Jersey--"a proud sponsor of Jesus Christ" (via). With one of these, you too can give deeper significance to pointing a proverbial #1 digit skyward on behalf of your favorite sports team, add psalming the ball to your repertoire of hoops skills, and find forgiveness for taking The Referee's name in vain.  If I had to pick, I'd go for the Denver Nuggets "Genesis" mix with Carmelo Anthony's number. Of note: the Lakersesque "Luke" is matched with Kobe Bryant's No. 8.  Wow.  Wonder what Luke Walton thinks about that.  And what, no New Jersey Devils remakes among the hockey tops?

Drat. Time to do something about that Lions categoricon.

Psalming the ball! Love that.

I think Phil Jackson is a Buddhist. Could there be another entrepreneurial opportunity here? Maybe Zen Magic?

Hmmmm....? I wonder what Jesus thinks about all this?

You're right about Jackson, Dad, as long as you mix in his other influences. Of course, coaching the triangle demands a lot of faith. Good coaching: a lot of faith plus a multimillion dollar contract. Great coaching: a lot of faith plus a multimillion dollar contract plus superstars.

Made it to the last of the presents and didn't find a Christian Throwback this year (did get a Pistons t-shirt though).
