Christ Almighty

Apparently while T.P. is off playing with the U-19 USA National Team, Mitch Platt and Ray Schafer are going to be hoopin' for Jesus. They both will be playing for Athletes in Action, a "faith based" basketball squad that tours the world looking to spread the good word. According to the AIA’s website their mission is to “bring Jesus Christ and His message of victory into the hearts, homes, and communities of millions around the world...and to share one message: Life’s greatest victory is found in a relationship with Jesus Christ.”

For some reason Sting Ray never struck me as a man of faith. Those wacky shaved lines in his hair and that monster truck he drives just didn't seem humble enough, although that ridiculous spin move to reverse lay up that he insists on doing every time he gets in the game could easily be called a "prayer" of a shot if he didn't make at least one a game.

I agree that Sting Ray isn't very Christ like; I had a class with him once, and he always showed up late, plus he would draw attention because everyone would think "Hey there's the really tall basketball player that sees any playing time
