As a former college football player I have to admit this game between the Broncos and Steelers was quite the finishing act. As an observer to what this poor young quarterback, Mr. Tim Tebow has suffered at the expense of his beliefs by the media, I can only say I could not have been happier for him. As a true believer and with the final stats forthcoming I can only say WOW! I won’t get into the issue of him almost missing birth today. Again WOW!
First I will take you to the BCS Championship game in 2009 when Tim prominently displayed on his eye black the passage John 3:16. To the uninitiated the passage is as follows, “For God so loved the world he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”. Now to the stats.
Mr. Tebow finished the game with exactly 316 passing yards.(3:16)
He completed 10 passes for an average of 31.6 cards per pass. (3:16) If that is not eerie enough for a believer let alone a non believer, the TV ratings in the final quarter of Sundays game came in at 31.6. (3:16) WOW does not suffice.
Divine intervention? I know, I know, God has better things to do than worry about a football game but I see this as less than a coincidence. Tebow has been savaged by the media. It is no secret that the mainstream press hold the religious in contempt and with a healthy dose of disdain. Just watch MSNBC sometime. They make no bones about their feelings in these matters. Again I could not be happier for this young man even though I have never been a Bronco fan. In fact I would like to see him lead this admittedly underdog squad to Super Bowl victory. Now that would be a miracle.
Aside from sports aspect and looking through my political lens, I can’t help but feel ecstatic at the thought of what the ACLU must have felt after this victory. And of course I got a thrill up my leg just thinking how devastated Chris Mathews must have felt. Kind of like the one he gets when President Obama pipes up. Excuse me for mixing religion and politics, but I am not establishing a state run religion here. I am actually having loads of fun. You might also say it is not very Christian like but I am not perfect.
Just think how Olbermann must feel. I laugh as I type. Seriously it is something for us all to contemplate. Truly astonishing statistically and perhaps a message to us. As with numerous parts of creation, we are left in wonder. 3:16.
Now if the Broncos can just beat the Patriots 16-3.
