Sport Psychology is God?


“I was always dismissive of sports psychology when I was competing, but I now realise that my belief in God was sports psychology in all but name.”

– Jonathan Edwards

This quote came from a blog entry on Not Just a Hat Rack by Mike Chalmers (who definitely believes in God).
