"The St. Paul’s Crusaders pray before playing the John Carroll Patriots during an MIAA B Conference regular season game at St. Paul's School on October 12, 2012, in Brooklandville, Md. The St. Paul’s Crusaders beat the previously unbeaten John Carroll Patriots, 34-0."

When I was staffed at a newspaper in Utah, there was always talk of the living curse that was the pregame prayer.

One season, it seemed no matter who shot some sort of pregame paryer image, that team would lose. Ironically enough, it held out to be true for as long as I can remember.

Living out there, I became curious in religion on the field. I never saw much religious activity in Maryland sports before moving West. Then again, I could have been overlooking it for years.

Yet with the high percentage of those that practice religion in Utah, football certainly wasn't the only place I witnessed prayer at times I wasn't accustom to. Thinking back on it now, I'd probably have enough images to make a photo essay on it.

Alas, this team didn't fall the curse as they rolled over their opponent with no troubles.
