You're in clouds. Tasteful Swedish furniture surrounds you. The sound of Stevie Wonder's "As" plays at exactly the right volume. New Testament God addresses you.
[gives you the one fingered sign for "need a second here"]
...yes, Oprah, I understand. Look under your chair! It's a kitten. Ha, i love doing that. No seriously, I just put an adorable kitten under your chair. She'll evaporate in six hours without you suffering any painful memories of its loss. I know! It has no claws and doesn't poop either. It's the perfect cat. I'd make more of them, but my co-workers insist on just cranking out more of their kind. Yeah, that's the regular kind. Okay, O. Love you girl!
Okay, so next on the agenda...college football! You! Yes, you. Your team is undefeated. Congratulations! Diversion is important, and pleasure a sacrament, so enjoy your good fortune. We now have to decide what is to become of all of you. I'm first going to address--
I'm sorry, that's my phone reminding me I have an appointment with Vishnu. Great guy, but little handsy if you know what I mean. But I forgive him! It's what I do. I'll be back in an hour or so, or more if VIshnu gets bent about me ordering steak and we have our usual disagreements. Me bless, and if you need anything in the meantime you can speak with my co-worker, who will be here to assist you.
A CLAP OF THUNDER. The sound of "Raining Blood." A strong smell of cheese.

--THIRTY POINT LOSS TO OKLAHOMA AND DEVOURED WOLVES IN THE PARKING LOT IT IS, PINKEL!
--Thanks and praise to you, oh God!

Mighty 'preciative, chief.
AND FOR THAT CHIEF BUSINESS I WILL ALSO HAVE YOU ACCEPT A JOB OFFER TO COACH THE BUFFALO BILLS. IT WILL SUCK, BUT YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT.
Always grateful for the opportunity, Chief.

ADDITIONALLY, I SHALL GIVE YOU THE POWER TO HEAR BCS CRITICS WHINING IN STEREO WITHOUT THE HELP OF ANY DIGITAL BROADCASTING DEVICES. TRY TO MAKE SWEET LOVE TO YOUR WIFE WITH THE SOUND OF DAN WETZEL IN YOUR EARS.
I...I don't think that's physically possible.
EXACTLY BUT THE BIRTH RATE IN IDAHO ISN'T SUFFERING IS IT? TOO BAD FOR YOU. CALL ME COMCAST BECAUSE YOU'RE GETTING SERVED POORLY AND IN A KIND OF RAPEY FASHION.

CONGRATULATIONS, NATIONAL CHAMPION.
Awww, thanks. I love you Grizzly Adams King of the Clouds and Torrence Fishburne!
IT'S GETTING MISTY IN HERE.

You may notice there's not Utah. That's because neither God nor the Blogpoll knows what to do with them.
