...a survey has found that 20 per cent of kids think he already plays for the Blues.

A total of 1,000 children were asked the following multiple choice question as part of a survey for Brent Cross Shopping Centre: Who is Jesus Christ? a) A footballer for Chelsea b) Son of God c) TV presenter d) X Factor contestant or e) An astronaut
Well, there's yer problem! They gave kids five choices. Obviously, acting purely by random chance, 20% of kids will have selected any particular one!

No {!#%@} way, Jesus plays for the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team. I've seen him hit the puck with a cross.

Simon Rice also thinks ... "It might be possible the children confused Jesus Christ with Jesus Navas, who plays for Manchester City."

Simon is a typical UK sports journalist who apparently hasn't the nous to realise that 20% of the kids in Brents Cross were taking the piss.

I don't believe in sport, anyways.

Actually, sport doesn't exist.

I count "big games" by how many rockets we could send to Mars instead. Or feed hungry people, etc.
