Today (1976): God is Born

JoeSportsFanSenior Analyst IApril 29, 2010

There have been some pretty interesting names to come through the sports world over the years, but perhaps none better than that of Providence College basketball point guard from 1995 to 1997 who went by the name, God Shammgod, who turns 34 today.

It’s not often that someone comes along with the stones to walk up to people and introduce himself as “God,” and do so with swagger.  These people must be celebrated.  

When we did our search for his New York City birth certificate, let’s just say we weren’t shocked with what we saw...

What would your reaction be if coach called you off the bench and told you your job was to “shut down God”?  It’s safe to say that he would have the edge in the mental game.
