You know, my retired pastor is a good olí penta-Baptist boy. He played football all thru high school(remimber, this is East Texas, football is second only the Infalable Baptist Church Grin ). Then, he went on to play for the 49ers. He hurt his knees and had to retire early. Then joined the army and played for some Military league! Every sermon, he will have at least one football analogy. Since we are using football analogies to describe the crucifixion of Christ anyway, letís talk about Lesson we learn is sports that relate to our lives, that we have carried over into life.

Health, well-being, work ethic, etc, and maybe some more spacific examples, too.

Hey, this is a good post, Tibby.   'Sorry to keep you hang'n(hehe).


One I like, which is probably common to any sport using a ball ( Roll Eyes), is, "Keep your eye on the ball."

In golf, though you were hit'n it straight down the fairway, you didn't look at that.  You kept your eye on the ball.

That for me is the same as keeping my "eye", on the good news, on Jesus Christ, in the Word; who I am(or, more accurately, who I am not  Embarrassed), and what I, or we, are here to do.

In other words, what God expects from us.

Thanks, sincere.

No, I feel pretty guilty out chasing a ball around the linx.

But I enjoy watching golf on TV--very contemplative, peacefull, thoughtful..  I like that.   Smiley   The only sport I like watching(on TV).


Tibby, you're nineteen, and you're getting too old for football?

I hate to see how it'll be at 25!   Grin


Maybe golf, huh.   Roll Eyes

Tibby at 19 cannot be to old for football.
He is more than likely out of shape and probably did no warmup. Gotta stretch those miuscles out and get them loose and limber or they will tighten up and hurt at any age when exercised.

George Blanda played in the NFL till He was 50 or 51. There is hope for a 19 year old.
