Bible Sports

In the middle of preparing for a 'Bible Overview' session this evening, so there won't be any profound posts today, even though I'd love to do a survey of Bishops Easter messages. Instead, some complete nonsense: earliest mentions of sports in the Bible -

Football tactics: "with two wings they were flying" (Isaiah 6:2)
Football vandalism: "he saw Simon and Andrew casting a net into the lake" (Mark 1)
Football coaching: " 'shoot!' Elisha said, and he shot." (2 Kings 13:17)

Cricket: "Peter stood up with the eleven and boldly declared" (Acts 2)
Cain was "driven from the ground" (Genesis 4:11)

Tennis: "If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength that God provides" (1 Peter 4:11)

Golf: "The rod will drive it far from him" (Proverbs 22:15)

there must be more.....
