Hello Folks!

Sorry it’s been a while since my last post, as usual thing have been surprisingly busy, however today’s post couldn’t wait another day. I say this because coming up tomorrow it would be really helpful to understand the ins and outs of being a good Christian sports-fan! (Note that this can and should be applied to all sports including those featuring individual athletes).

Diagram This Out

I LOVE football! I don’t know why you call it football when you use your hands most of the time, but then calling it handball is right out! (For what it’s worth the British term for “American Football” GRIDIRON is totally awesome! Back on point I love teams playing great football, I love the Seahawks playing exceptional football, but I love my 49ers more!

I’ve been a 49er fan since the early 80’s, my first football on the telly was 49ers vs. the Raiders and it wasn’t even close. I loved the 49ers intensity and passion- I loved that they wore the color red- it always reminds me of the blood that poured from my Savior to wash my sins whiter than snow! And I’ve been a fan ever since, through lean years, through the almost there years, and now we’re back at the top of our game it’s an exciting time to be a 49er fan- just as it is right now to be a Seahawks, Patriots or Broncos fan.

Tomorrow I’m going to be enjoying the first church service (at the Packinghouse we’re going through Romans!) and then making my way to an awesome local sports bar (The Upper Deck Sports Lounge at Pharaoh’s Lost Kingdom in Redlands CA.) for both games. (What you’re about to read also applies to those watching the games at home also). There will be passionate fans there for all the teams, and there is nothing wrong with being passionate in the support of your team but you need to keep a few things in mind- some Biblical things.
