Thank you . . .


Ok, so I'm checking out the NCAA tournament scores on ol' ESPN.com and something catches my eye - do you see it?







Here, I'll highlight it for you.








Yup, that's right, Jesus helped him make the shot.





So now I'm curious and I check the boxscore to see who is named Jesus - the first time through I don't spot anyone. I'm looking at all the last names and no one is named Jesus - uh . . .

Then I find this guy who has the first name, Jesus (he's from Venezuela so it's cool). Mystery solved - except everyone else has their last name used or both their first and last name used, but not Jesus. So some ESPN writer thought it would be funny (and it is) to have the line "assisted by Jesus" show up on the Information-Super-Inter-Web-Way.

Mr. Stat-Typer-Man, we salute you.
