As a follow up to my previous post, I’m including a video from another blog I discovered. I was unaware that a new book – “The Best Game Ever” – has recently been released that defends the idea that the 1958 Championship is the best game ever. Take a look at author Mark Bowden as he recounts the televised matchup and its effects on the nation. I’m so glad to hear that my choice has been validated.
I am an insatiable NFL fan. When I was twenty-one years old and I first started sensing a call into Christian ministry, my greatest concern was that I might have to miss NFL games. I am so thankful that God called me to minister in a Presbyterian Church where there are no Sunday Evening Services. In the fall, after a wonderful morning of worship, there is no greater feeling for me than to buy a bucket of fried chicken, pop a couple of cold ones, and kick back in front of my big screen to watch the greatest sport on the face of the planet. Jonathan Edwards and Calvin, being pretty serious guys, would probably disapprove. But I don’t hold it against them.
