Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • So...why is it OK for angels of God to influence the outcome of games? And why couldn't God detect the sarcasm of Roger's dad's fateful words?
    • I always saw it as a type of "kill two birds with one stone" thing. The angels influence the outcome of relatively meaningless games (not influencing the game that had major repercussions) to have the coach feel genuine affection for Roger & JP, leading to both of them to get a good home, as well as make the coach a better person. I'd say that God did know that Roger's dad was being sarcastic, Roger didn't pick up on it.
