Why Point at the Sky??

I don't know how baseball players managed to get on the "fast track" about how things are run in "Heaven".

First, IF there even IS a place like heaven, how is it "our ancestors" get to say, "Sorry God, no time for You, I have to watch a ball game, and perhaps act God-like myself, and do supernatural things to affect the game!"  Bonds, Guerrero, Swisher, they all think a departed loved one is helping them.

Say you die, and your 100-trillion neuron connections actually mysteriously travel to heaven (or a parallel set in another dimension get activated.)  Why do you get to watch baseball games on Earth?  Maybe everyone in Heaven, 100% of their time, has to participate in the ongoing "Greek Olympics"?? "First Adapters" may get to call the shots!(??)

Maybe for the first 1000 years, you have to go to the Andromeda galaxy, and do "good work" pushing boulders around?  Why do baseball players make public displays indicating they think they know more about this than others know ???!

Some baseball players appear to think they have it "wired", and figure their antecedents get to become "mini-Gods" pushing baseballs over fences?  Isn't one of the Ten Commandments about "no gods before me"?  Doesn't that include ancestor-worship to give them thanks for using supernatural powers???

And, if they think God Himself is working, inning by inning, how come only one team gets a World Series victory each year, with MOST "heaven-pointers" excluded?
