She never took one for granted after that.
“Watching athletes pointing to the heavens to acknowledge their savior after scoring a touchdown, you’d think God actually cared about which team won.”
I’m not sure the good rabbi understands what they are thanking God for in that gesture. Could it be that the elation they feel for what they just accomplished with their teammates, and shared with 100,000 fans (not to mention television audience) might be something worthy of thanks? Is God to be altogether removed from joy? Nice message, rabbi.
It seems to me that the guy who missed the last tackle before the touchdown was also performing at the peak of his abilities, too.
You never see them acknowledge God in it.
Friday, today on Michael Medved’s show he was talking about camping out illegally at Gettysburg when he was 17 years old and that they did indeed see the purported ghosts of Gettysburg. He described them as like “apparitions”.
Now, let me qualify this, I think he was saying it in the first person but not positive, I happened to tune it in right when he began his speech, not sure what he said immediately before. Had to say this. One often hears about the so-called ghosts of Gettysburg. Kind of wild.
Found this other thread, after hearing the story, I hope he’s not a Bigfoot freak.
