Divine Justice!

Football (soccer) fans in Israeli stadiums famously have a vocabulary of five (Hebrew) words: The Umpire's a SOB, when things are going bad, and God Exists, when their team is winning.

Well, here's the proof that God exists.

Though it does make one wonder. Israeli sports folk are pretty crappy. Could it be that antisemitism is God's way of improving them?

You know as well as I do that it's "the umpire is a son of a whore", which is oh so much better than SOB. ;-)

Yes, you're right.

It's not an umpire in soccer; it's a referee. That's the problem with Americans talking about sports they have no clue about.

And Yaacov, you know as well as I do that the fans of your hometown team, Betar Yerushalayim, are famous for shouting not The referee's a SOW or God exists, but Death to the Arabs.

But of course they don't mean it.
