Sporting

by on November 8, 2013

This story was written for Trifecta’s weekend prompt, which was to depict a god of our own devising out of thirty-three. Enjoy!

“Right, let’s call roll. Thor?”

A crash of thunder.

“Thor, check. Athena…..Jupiter ….Bill. Bill? What are you?”

“Fantasy football, sir. Smote a quarterback yesterday.”

“Oh. Well. Keep up the good work then.”

  3. Ha! Awesome! I stopped short of creating my own 33-deity pantheon, but I think Bill would have a place there. 🙂

  4. Hah! I love it!

    This made me laugh. I like that his name is Bill.

  6. Smote is such an awesome word choice! Love it. And I love how I can picture this scene so perfectly. 🙂

  7. Yep… cracked me up! “Thor”::Crash of Thunder… that’s good. In fact, I’m going to see Thor @ 6 today… no kidding.
