Opening Arguments

With God on our side

I'm not prepared yet to say where the world is headed, but I have my handbasket picked out just in case:

In their simple convent, where rows of chairs are arranged in front of a television and a crucifix, the 23 nuns of the Salesian Sisters of Mary Immaculate Province briefly put aside their pleas for the sick and the poor to pray for the San Antonio Spurs.

With basketball players' names pinned to white smocks beneath their habits, the sisters faithfully gather at game time in the convent's community room, yelling "Make that basket!" and "C'mon!"

Silly nuns. God is for the Cleveland Cavaliers. He told me so.
