God: “Pleased to be back in the game” after Hudson River crash

After a long time out of the limelight God said at a press conference today that He was pleased to be back in the game and administering to the faithful after His triumphant last minute saving of the passengers of US Airways Airbus A320 flight 1549.

"I was a touch nervous at first, you know, can I still play at the top level? You have to have some doubts after such a long time away," said the Almighty. "However I was just pleased I was able to come off the bench and make a difference, save a few souls. This was for the fans that‘ve had so much faith in Me. The American fans are awesome, man."

The Lord was speaking in response to several commentators, such as Senator Charles Schumer, saying that it was a miracle no one was killed when the 70 tonne plane hit the freezing water of the Hudson River in New York and giving thanks to God.

"Well, I can’t take all the credit, because you know I was only in the game for the last couple of minutes," He said. "If I had been able to be involved from the start I might have blown the plane and the flock of geese apart, or maybe made it a glancing blow on the fuselage. A goose can break a man’s engine you know. A bit of the credit has to go to the pilot, and all the training the aircrew have. And the ferry crews. And to Airbus, they sure built a good plane! But yeah, I saved the day. Woo! Yeah!"

God then opened the floor to questions and was asked why He delayed His return so long. He was asked if He should have been involved with the XL Airways Airbus A320 that crashed into the Mediterranean killing all on board, or the Spanair Flight JK 5022 from Madrid in which 154 people died as well as the hundreds of other accidents over the years.

"Well, you see I am married to every nun, " said God. "And that means I always have a load of Shelves to put up."
