team jesus

26 Oct

While I was interviewing a standardized patient–a large black Baptist woman who used prayer as the main form of treatment of diabetes–she explained that she was a “football widow,” meaning that she lost her husband to the football games every Sunday and Monday nights.  I asked her what sports teams, if any, she supported.  “Oh honey, the only team for me is TEAM JESUS!!!”  It took all my self-control to not respond with something like, “That’s John and me!”

Needless to say, she thought it was a pretty awesome sign that the first two medical students she saw were Jesus and Christian, respectively.  Go team.
