John Madden was in Green Bay to announce a football game one weekend
when he noticed a special telephone near the Packers' bench. He asked
QB Favre what it was used for and was told it was a hotline to God.
John asked if he could use it. Favre replied, 'Sure, but it will cost you $200.
John scratched his head, then thought, what the heck, I could use some
help picking games. He pulled out his wallet and paid $200. John's picks
were perfect that week.

The next week, John was in Indianapolis when he noticed that same kind
of phone on the Colts bench. He asked what the telephone was for and
Manning told him, 'It's a hotline to God if you want to use it, it will cost
you $500.' Recalling the previous week, John pulled out his wallet and
made the call. John's picks were perfect again that week.

Last weekend, John was in Foxborough, when he noticed the same kind of
telephone by the Pats' bench. He asked Tom Brady, 'Is that the
hotline to God?' Tom said, 'Yes, and if you want to use it, it will cost you
50 cents.' John looked incredulously at Brady and said, 'Wait a second,
I just paid $200 in Green Bay and $500 in Indianapolis to use the
same phone to God! Why do the Patriots only charge 50 cent?
Tom replied, 'Because in New England, it's a local call...
Welcome to God's Country.'.................
