If that means there's going to be football in Hell, the place may not remain a deterrent for a lot of people!

In most cases we don't really know who's in Heaven or Hell. There are people who led bohemian lives of abandon, but may have ended up in Heaven due to how they ended or (granted this is more specifically Catholic) through purgation. Still several noted or interesting people have been considered holy by various Christian denominations.

Scientist Nicolas Steno and artist Fra Angelico are beatified in my faith. Dorothy Day led a pretty wild life for a time. She had an abortion and common-law husbands. Even after conversion she was a pacifist beloved by some in the counterculture and disliked by some cardinals. She's considered a Servant of God in Catholicism. Martin Luther King, Jr. is on the Lutheran and, I believe, Anglican calendar of saints. One or the other of those churches also place Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, and Chief Seattle on their religious calendar. The African Orthodox Church considers John Coltrane to be a saint or blessed.

From a Catholic perspective Oscar Wilde may be in Heaven due to his conversion near the end of life. The Vatican has hinted at this as possible. It seems likely to me there are many homosexuals, recovered alcoholics, reformed prostitutes, former strippers, etc in Heaven. Also that Hell has many boring miserly accountants who always wore ties, were punctual to all the meetings where they ripped people off, and raped their secretaries. Or bored housewives of Hell who treated poor people like dirt and tortured their children to relieve the ennui. (This is starting to sound like a weird episode of Mad Men, so I'll stop there)

Oh well, its Hell, I'll just bash his head in everyday.

I think he is a foot ball player, but why he is headed to the mythical hell I sure don’t know. (That is American foot ball)
