yeah.

regarding

THAT UPCOMING 2020 US OPEN LADIES ( WOMEN’s ) SINGLES FINAL LAWN-TENNIS MATCH BETWEEN VICTORIA AZARENKA AND NAOMI OSAKA

later today SAT.12.09.(SEP).2020,

when two players that you really like are facing off against each other / one another, which of the two do you support ?

yeah.

i mean,
in the absence of any extenuating? circumstances that may pre-dispose you to supporting one over the other may polarize you into favouring one over the other,
who do you support ?
one way or another ?

in that conundrum, very frankly,

i suppose the thing really to do is to fall back on that old wisdom commonly pronounced among the educated Onitsha igbo / eeboe … historically …

and which goes something like this :

EVERY BODY PRAYS TO GOD.

AND SO,

WHEN TWO FOOTBALL TEAMS ARE ABOUT TO PLAY A MATCH AND YOU SEE ALL THE FOOTBALLERS IN THE 2 OPPOSING TEAMS KNEELING DOWN IN THE PITCH TO PRAY BEFORE THE MATCH STARTS

( …. this is a common sight – historically and till date – on many football fields across Nigeria whenever 2 teams are about to play a football match …. )

DOES IT MEAN THAT GOD IS GOING TO REJECT THE PRAYERS OF ONE TEAM ?

AND ANSWER THE PRAYERS OF THE OTHER TEAM ?

AFTER-ALL IT IS A COMPETITION
AND IN A COMPETITION EVENTUALLY ONE – NOT TWO – ONE OVER-ALL WINNER MUST EMERGE.

SO IT’S REALLY A CASE OF

EVERY MAN / EVERY WOMAN FOR HIMSELF / HERSELF
AND
GOD FOR US ALL

i.e A CASE OF EVERY TEAM FOR ITSELF
AND
GOD FOR THEM ALL
AND
GOD FOR US ALL.

in effect,
MAY THE BETTER COMPETITOR WIN,
IN JESUS NAME,
AMEN.

so i guess applying this to a match between
the BEAUTIFUL NAOMI and the BEAUTIFUL VICTORIA

i guess it is

VICTORIA AZARENKA for HERSELF,


NAOMI OSAKA FOR HERSELF,


GOD FOR THEM BOTH,
GOD FOR US ALL,

and

MAY THE BETTER COMPETITOR WIN,
IN JESUS NAME,
AMEN.
