So, God Told Kurt Warner to Spurn the 49ers. What Else Did The Almighty Say?

Arizona Cardinals quarterback and devout Christian Kurt Warner briefly

considered joining the San Francisco 49ers this week, but while he was visiting the Bay Area

God apparently told Warner to forget it. "I told my wife probably 45

minutes into it that I just felt God say 'You're supposed to be in

Arizona," Warner said, "and I told her that. She tried to tell me to

stay open, but he just continued to confirm it."

What else did the Almighty whisper in Warner's ear?

  • Evoking my name in your transparent ploy to get a more lucrative contract out of the Cardinals is, well, sinful.
  • I hate it when you guys point up at me after a touchdown. It's so rude.
  • Count on the second coming before the Niners can count on Alex Smith at QB.
  • Al Davis is my toughest opponent every Sunday, if you know what I mean.
  • I thought that 100-yard interception return against you in the Super

    Bowl would teach you a little humility, but I've been wrong before. Oh,

    wait, no I haven't!

  • Go Saints!
  • The NFL's okay, I guess, but horse racing's my real passion.
  • The term "Hail-Mary pass" really pisses me off.
  • If desperate teams would simply call an "Our Father Pass," they'd be a lot more successful. Hint, hint.
  • Gotta go, I'm supposed to give George Bush a call at two. And I've got Osama at three. Those two never shut up.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
