About a month ago, Chicago Bears kicker Eddy Piñeiro made a game-winning field goal.
He reacted with a tweet telling atheists they should start believing in God:
If you don’t believe in God you better start believing he’s REAL thank you chicago! https://t.co/2sMWfsYAmy

If you don’t believe in God you better start believing he’s REAL thank you chicago!
He was even more specific during a post-game interview in which he said, “If you don’t believe in Jesus Christ, you better start, because he’s real. I promise you that.”Funny thing about that.
Earlier today, Piñeiro missed what would have been a game-winning kick. It went wide left and left the Bears with a rather disappointing 3-4 record.
The Bears still can't make a kick..

I just want a reporter to ask Piñeiro if he’s an atheist now.
Or if the missed kick was part of God’s plan, which makes his earlier boast even more ridiculous in hindsight.
Or if he’s willing to admit that God doesn’t give a damn about field goals.
Any question will do. Just get him on the record. I’ll update this post if he addresses the Christian elephant in the room.
