Congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks on winning the XLVIII Super Bowl Game.
I posted an interview by Pastor Mark Driscoll, with five of the Seahawks players, including quarterback Russell Wilson, last Friday. Within that post I expressed my hope that these fine men, all of whom professed and reaffirmed their faith in Jesus during the interview, would win the Super Bowl.
In addition, it was my hope that Tim Tebow, who was subjected to non-stop vilification for his faith while playing professional football in 2011, would be pleased to see that there are brave young Christian professional sportsmen who are following in his footsteps and publicly affirming their faith in Jesus.
Well, not only did the Seattle Seahawks win the Super Bowl, they crushed the Denver Broncos, who were favored to win – 43 to 8! This was definitely one for the Good Guys!
Quarterback Russell Wilson continued the affirmation of his love for Jesus when he began the game by making the sign of the cross on the field. I’m sure Tim Tebow would be pleased.
So, not only did the Seahawks attest to their faith in their public interview with Driscoll before the game, they reaffirmed and signaled their faith while entering the field, they fought valiantly and won the game and just for good measure, they walloped the Broncos, all in the name of the Lord! Now, no one could ask for more from this resounding victory.
But, yes, it gets better. Although I’m sure that Tim Tebow was pleased with all of the above accomplishments, there is one more thing for which Tim may be personally pleased.
You see the defeated Broncos quarterback, Patton Manning, was the guy who replaced Tim as the Broncos quarterback. Tim was unceremoniously traded (despite Tim’s winning record) to NY Jets because he was embroiled in his faith-based, media “scandal” AND, the Bronco’s management failed to support him in any way. So, they more than deserved the stomping they got today.
And, although Mr. Tebow, who is a devout Christian, would probably not put it in these words – Ah! Revenge is Sweet!
