In the days and weeks leading up to the Super Bowl, you could hardly go anywhere without seeing blue and white. Team colors and logos were everywhere, and Colts fever was spreading! The hype was building and the cash registers were ringing as everyone bought their Super Bowl goodies and memorabilia in preparation for the big event!
Needless to say, the "big game" ended up being a big disappointment to most. Nearly every Hoosier is still trying to get over the Colts' surprising loss. Though, the important thing to remember is that it is "just a game". Who is going to remember (or care) five or ten years from now who won what? It will be just another statistic of sports history.
The things people remember most are the things that last long after the last touchdown is made. Surely, the majority would agree that there is a lot to remember about this year's Super Bowl (most of which has nothing to do with the game itself).
Probably the most talked about element of the Super Bowl has to be one of the ads. We all look forward to them; and how funny, strange, or inspiring they might be. This year was no exception. However, one ad in particular got more buzz and publicity than any other: The Tebow Ad.
Jill Stanek's article on WorldNetDailey.com reminds us all of the fact that: "There is no better public-relations strategist in the universe than God." With all the buzz about how "controversial" the ad was, you would have thought that it was an "in-your-face" pro-life ad that fiercely attacked abortion (as Planned Parenthood always fears). However, everyone was surprised at the fact that the ad did not even mention abortion. The ad simply was what it was; a simple ad to celebrate the lives of a mother and son who value the miracle of life very much. Praise God for using all the negative remarks of the pro-choice crowd to peak the interest of America and capture peoples' attention (and hopefully, their hearts as well)! Kudos, also, to the Tebow family for being unafraid and unashamed to share their story (which you can see more of at the Focus on the Family website or on Tangle).
The God-party does not end there! In fact, there is another wonderful and praiseworthy video worth talking about! It features Drew Brees talking about his faith in Christ! As a personal friend so brilliantly put it: "Can you play for a team called 'Saints' and not talk about Jesus?"
This year's Super Bowl sure was a memorable one! Any time God is praised and glorified, it is a shinning moment! Even though the Colts did not win this time, this still ranked alongside the Colts' Super Bowl win in 2007 when Tony Dungy gladly gave the glory to God! It is an awesome thing when you have humble people and players who decide to give God the credit instead of taking it all for themselves!
It is pretty certain that the Saints, and their fans, will be saying "who dat?" for quite a while. Though, whenever we hear it, we should all know the answer to that question by now: "Christ. That's 'who dat'! He is where it's at!"
