Top 5 Surprising Mashups of Religion and Sports

Religion has been invoked, evoked, and provoked this year in the vertiginous swirl that is Tebowmania.  Whether you can’t get enough of the Protestant Patron Saint of Comebacks, or if you can’t stomach one more second of this wedding of church and football, you might be tempted to think that Tebow was the first one to flex his faith in the sports arena.
