However, Charlie has outdone himself with this pronouncement in the wake of Colorado's sack-drowning at the hands of the Red Sox in this year's Series:
"These guys did amazing things," Monfort said. "I think this team is a better team than Boston. It would have been nice to have another two, three, four days. We'll wake up tomorrow and go, 'There's no baseball game to go to,' but what a deal they did. It's an amazing thing they accomplished just to get here."
That statement is, if you think about it, fairly genius. Follow the chain: Christians are strong and awesome; the Rockies are Christian; therefore the Rockies must be strong and awesome. External data proving or disproving the chain is unnecessary (and possibly immoral).
That is a pretty damn good way of preempting questions about the WS loss: "Charlie, can you explain why your team was swept?" "They weren't swept. In Heaven, that is. Down here, results were more equivocal."
So here's to you, Mr. Monfort. Would that we all could selectively deny reality like you. The world would be a much more interesting place.
