[Whatever else is going on in his head, it sounds like Reggie has the media's
number on this one... I wonder if he would have said "whom" in this title, too?

   Pro Bowl defensive end Reggie White of the Green Bay Packers spoke
   with the press Wednesday as his team prepared for Sunday's playoff
   game against the Dallas Cowboys.

   White, who injured his left elbow the week before the Packers'
   Thanksgiving Day game against the Cowboys, has been wearing a
   rubber sleeve on his arm for protection.  But White said Wednesday
   there is absolutely nothing wrong with his elbow and that he is

   In fact, he insists it did not hurt him in the least the day of the
   game, even though doctors originally predicted he would be out for
   two to three weeks.  He stands by his proclamation that God healed
   his elbow in time for him to play.

   "It's been fine," he said.  "The last time we talked about it being
   healed. It wasn't hurting.  I think a lot of people still think my
   arm is not well. And it is.

   "I think some of the reason the media couldn't take me saying that
   God healed me is because y'all can't interview God.  If I would
   have said a psychic or something, you would have interviewed him."

   When he was asked what he thought God might say, White said,
   "You've got to talk to him.  You can set it up yourself."
