Random thought: Do you think that some of this heightened violence is because people are somehow snapping over the belief that the world is going to end in a week?
Posted this on my FB page but wanted to post here too:
I’m sorry … I know I’m going to upset some people with this but I can’t really listen to/see it anymore without saying something … hate on me all you like or worse:
Let’s keep the football in football, people. Now there was supposedly halos over the stadium this past weekend? He threw for exactly 316 yards - so it must be a sign? Seriously people? Esta loco.
Even Tebow would tell you all that you’re taking it too far and you’re seeing things you want to see. I admit that I’m not the most religious person but even I feel like at least some of all this is blasphemy (call it the Catholic school boy in me). I know everyone wants to believe that there is a higher power on your side. I get it. However, if you believe God has nothing better to do that to ensure the Broncos and Tebow win, then that is a very selfish and superficial outlook. I’ve said this since the beginning of the season.
Root for the Broncos, I know I am. Pray for what you feel is appropriate, it’s between you and God and should be kept that way. Be thankful for what you have and hope for others to be so fortunate. Heck, if it makes you happy, even hope against all the odds that the Broncos get lucky and actually win all the way to the SuperBowl. But please, stop with making a spectacle of all this with trying to see signs and how Tebow is somehow chosen. It’s just not the case - he’s human and fallible like the rest of us. Win or lose on Sunday, it will not be the result of anyone but the players and coaches on the field during the game.
Interesting week for me:
- The timetable for me to move into my boss’ role was moved up significantly and not by his choice or mine. As a result, the work on my plate more than doubled overnight.
- I took first place in a poker tournament this week after not playing any cards in the better part of two months.
- Today is my 16th wedding anniversary. For the first time ever, my wife and I have spent it apart (she’s visiting family).
Here’s hoping that next week is much more quiet and less interesting.
