This fellow has a Notre Dame name because of how it starts: Ndamukong. [Weak opening, sorry] The Lions’ Suh, that is, the daylight stomper from Detroit.
He nods by calling as witness to his innocence the well-known “man upstairs,” which is to anthropormophize G-d beyond recognition except by Hispanic home-run hitters who look and point up as they round the bases.
But he of whom Ndamukong Suh spoke after going smash-and-stomp on Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith has to be NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, says one fellow.
Unfortunately for Suh, the man upstairs in the NFL is Roger Goodell, says another.
But G-d as man upstairs? Not quite how the Psalmist would have us understand Him:
