Let's take a trip down memory lane, all the way back to the SEC Championship game. The Gators played flat, to be polite, and Bama fans lost their minds and mocked our boy for "crying." And we all felt horrible, but in retrospect it was more like having an argument with your cousin before Thanksgiving dinner, because you know you'll get to take it out on him after dinner when you play some football in the yard later.
Then there was the Sugar Bowl. What a fun time, even with the roller coaster of Coach Meyer's resignation/leave of absence and the tearful farewell to Timmy T and the seniors.
Who knew that less than one month later you'd have N.O.W taking on Tim Tebow, and his mom, and Sarah Palin and Susan B. Anthony (well her list) hitting back? And such venerable pundits like The New Yorker and Chuck Colson would be on the sidelines chanting. Here's what Colson had to say:
Heisman-winning quarterback Tim Tebow knows how to play offense. He also knows to expect opposition. Unfortunately, off the field, there’s no one to throw a flag when the other side plays rough.
But that’s exactly what’s been happening. Earlier this week, Focus on the Family announced that University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, and his mother Pam, would appear in a 30-second commercial on Super Bowl Sunday. The theme of the ad sponsored by Focus, and now raising such ire, is simply, “Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life.”
We live in strange and wondrous days. So strange and wondrous that the SAINTS are in the SUPER BOWL! WHO DAT!
This may be hokey, but dare to dream. Really, whatever your dream, go after it this year. If this past year hasn't made you believe that anything is possible, despite the set backs, we don't really know what will.
Phil 4:13 I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me.
