Don't tell me there are no Catholics in the NFL sports world!

Ha! Let's hear it for the Catholic worldview expressed in sports.

Charles Robinson, of Yahoo! Sports, has written a cool article for fantasy footballers called, Guilty Of Sin.

In it he details seven teams he deems guilty of one of the seven deadly sins. Ha! I say- a treat in more ways than one.

Here's an excerpt:

They are the lessons of avoidance that are supposed to keep us on the path. Stay virtuous, live right and avoid the seven deadly sins: Lust, gluttony, greed, wrath, envy, pride and sloth.

Applied to the NFL landscape, they are merely seven vices that shape the league and fill the sports pages. And believe it or not, each year they shape the Super Bowl chase. So in honor of the vices that sort out the pretenders and contenders, we give you a list of teams that have committed sins that are bound to shape the postseason.

Don't worry friend, the NFL does have a small but loyal core of devout Catholics. I don't recall all the names, but somtimes you'll see diffrent Football players on EWTN. Also, Brett Favre, Packers QB and living legend (atleat around here) is a very devout Catholic, goes to Mass weekly (and it is rumored daily) the Packers have a team preist even!
