    I honestly didn’t much care who won.

    I just like a close game.

    So for me the game was pretty satisfying.

    What a great game! When the team with the better quarterback also gets the breaks of the special teams that’s pretty much enough. The old princess and barbarian myth is reaffirmed in Las Vegas but it is hard to imagine that her attraction to him will last beyond the morning fog.

    Kansas City is going to have to raise up some new prophets per Bob Jones especially since the locals are in disarray. Still, that football game is why people watch. It had everything, except lots of controversies about the refs. That was kinda quiet.

    If conservative Christians can move away from inerrancy and creationism they would save themselves a load of misery and maybe preserve the faith of some of the children.

    I actually watch the Super Bowl, even the commercials and the halftime show. The commercials were so rapid fire and content intense I usually didn’t catch what they were promoting before the next one rolled by. The halftime show was a shoulder shrug for me. The dancing was cool and they had a few snappy tunes but I didn’t know any of them so I couldn’t sing along.

    My favorite moment was Kelce nearly knocking over Reid and then both of them putting the old ‘nothing to see here’ spin on it.

    Amazing how predictable the whole thing was; a last minute win at the hands of the dominant quarterback. We’ve never seen that before. And we don’t seem to tire of it.

    Anyway it was a nice 5 hour distraction from real life with my favorite person at hand.

    Dread,

    Agree on all points…

    The best part of the day for me was the retrospective on the original “NFL Today” with Brent Musberger… I missed a bunch of it, but what I saw brought back the feels…

    bob1,

    It was a great game…especially the ending.

  5. Captain Kevin says:

    I’m not a prude (ok, maybe a little), but I don’t understand why the halftime producers felt it necessary for Usher to do a strip show in addition to him spending lengthy time staring longingly at Alicia Keys breasts and derrière.

  6. Kevin H says:

    There is a big part of me that thinks the $7 million would be better spent on helping those in need. But there’s also a part that recognizes that good does come from the He Gets Us commercials, even as many criticize them. The He Gets Us campaign has a whole host of local pastors on their rolls who they refer people to who contact the campaign needing someone to talk to or wanting to know more about Jesus. There are lots of stories of people who have been impacted through such.

  7. Kevin H says:

    I wish Andy Reid had Patrick Mahomes when he was with the Eagles.

  8. Michael says:

    Kevin,

    There’s a big part of me that wants to like the commercials because the people I don’t like, don’t like them.

    I don’t know how you would measure their success.

    I do know they also sponsor the NASCAR racecar of the driver I really can’t stand, so they must be wrong… 🙂

  9. Kevin H says:

    I wouldn’t know how you would measure their success either beyond how many references they’re able to make to local pastors, but even that can’t really indicate how much real impact there is in the end.

    I personally would probably rather the money go to help those in need, but at the same time I am still thankful for the lives that are impacted for good and that a picture of Jesus is broadcasted that is much closer to reality than what has been often broadcasted in our culture.

    As for NASCAR, I know nothing, but Jesus didn’t wash the feet of any Dallas Cowboys in that commercial, so I’m good. 🙂

    One socual media thing that touched my heart today was a FB “reel.”

    Taylor Swift in concert thanks her audience and says “Do you have time for one more?”

    The girl videoing from the audience screams back: “I have time but do YOU?!” (It seems she was genuinely concerned that Ms Swift make her boyfriends game).

    If we Christians could only care for each other so genuinely

  11. Michael says:

    Steven…well said…

  12. Linn says:

    It was a good game, although I was said that the 49ers lost. I grew up with all the San Francisco teams. so I have my preferences. 🙂
    The stuff people are saying about Taylor Swift-I do believe that American education has failed us all, and I’ve been teaching 40+ years.

  13. Dan from Georgia says:

    Amen to #5…mind if I post that on my FB feed, with proper accredation of course? I want to see if I can lose a few FB friends. No, seriously. Well stated.

    I bore easily of the SB commercials…seems like they are all little stories with cameos and rarely pique my interest but that is just me.

    The game was great! It was nice to see a game where someone isn’t villified as causing a team to lose.

  14. Michael says:

    Dan,

    You can always use whatever you want…no credit needed…

  15. Reuben says:

    My concern for the football game was a bet I had with others on how many times Taylor Swift would be shown on the TV. My bet was 26+. It turned out to be 12 or 13, so I lost the bet.

    Companies (Capitalists) spent seven million a commercial to ensure more income. Why should Churches (Capitalists) be any different?

    Point #1. I didn’t see the irresponsibility at all. In fact I believe it was responsibility that drove it. For that, I am grateful. I reject the apology. Outright. I love you anyway.

  16. Dan from Georgia says:

    With all the crap out there about conspiracy theories, Jesus is woke because he washed feet, Trump and Biden, Taylor Swift is a secret agent, chem trails, etc., I do have to say that I am SO glad that I got a solid foundation back in the last 80s and early 90s from reading the WHOLE Bible through and from attending my conservative (non-political) church.

    It is absolutely stunning and sad how so many believers fall into this stuff I mentioned above. I am not perfect, but I am thankful I haven’t been swallowed up in that.
