Head-lines on the Super Bowl

Here are some of my head-lines (remember, lines from my head) about the Super Bowl.

– We had about 50 guys from our church there watching the game. We watched it on the 52″ LCD we use as a screen during youth church. It was awesome!

– Being one of about 3 people in room of 50 routing for the Steelers was AWESOME! I mainly picked them because Pittsburg LB Larry Foote and I were in the same youth church when I got saved in high school.  Oh, and because EVERYBODY ELSE in the room picked Arizona. Gotta keep it fun, right?

– I don’t actually have much to say about the commercials. I only remember the “Chrystal Ball” commercial and the commercials for the GI Joe, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Fast and Furious (I only remember it because the teenagers got REALLY excited) and Land of the Lost movies.

– The overturned touchdown was some FANTASTIC officiating. I hated the call, but they got it right.

– The 100 pick-6 by Harrison was INCREDIBLE! That man is HUGE and he ran 100 yards off a pick in Super Bowl. That had never been done before. I guess that’s why he was Defensive Player of the Year.

– Not a Bruce Springstein fan. I never got it…

– WHY IS MATT MILLEN GIVING HALFTIME ANALYSIS??? HE ORCHESTRATED THE WORST FOOTBALL TEAM IN THE HISTORY OF THE LEAGUE! 0-16?!?! WHY DOES HE GET TO GIVE HIS OPINION DURING THE SUPERBOWL????? I don’t want to hear ANYTHING he has to say about football! Not how the game is being called, not how the uniforms look, not even if he thinks a cheerleader is cute! I don’t want to hear ANYTHING he has to say. John Madden already says the OBVIOUS stuff that happens during the game so we shouldn’t hear ANYTHING from Matt Millen. After creating the WORST team in football history, he should be banned from football for 2 years. The only way he should come back to football is if they let Michael Vick back in the league! Both of them are guilty of cruel and inhumane treatment. Vick did it to dogs, Millen did it to us Lions fans!

– That was the best fourth quarter of a Super Bowl in a LONG time!

– I didn’t know how long I could take the “Steve, you look like Mike Tomlin” comments or the “what’s the call coach?” Sigh….

– Congrats Steelers! Tomlin became the youngest coach to win a SB title. AND he’s Tony Dungy protege…gotta love that!



So, new segment called “Head-lines”. Its a segment where I just rattle off different stuff in my head.

Read and be confused.

– I’m really happy about celebrating my 4 year wedding anniversary with my lovely wife. Most bloggers say their wives are hot, but mine REALLY is.

– Thanksgiving was DEFINITELY different with mom being in the hospital this year.

– I’m actually NOT looking forward to Christmas this year. So just know that if I write a cynical post about the way we celebrate Christmas – you’ll know the heart of the matter.

– I’m REALLY digging Anthony Evan’s CD called “The Bridge”. FINALLY someone puts a slightly urban flair on worship music without making it sound like Pentacostal black church hymns or like Swizz Beats production. Good stuff!

– One of my youth leaders is blogging! Aaron Hampton is blogging about his experience being a victor of cancer and his current surgery. Check him out you will DEFINITELY be encoraged!

– I think I blog for the wrong reasons. Most people blog to express their voice, I write to find mine.

– I am slightly envious of full-time youth pastors. Being bi-vocational sucks sometimes…most times…95% of the time…maybe more. At the sametime, I’m grateful for my job. God has and will continue to provide.

– I’m a little closer to overcoming my lack of confidence and tapping into something I’ve been avoiding for a while. My wife has started to push me on this a little more too -and I never even mentioned it to her. What is it? Writing worship music.

Lots more but I’ll stop there.
