After demonstrating last Sunday how God was very much active in Timothy Tebow's final game this season, I have taken it upon myself to continue demonstrating how God is in every game with the "Sacrilegious Sunday" series. Here is how Patriots and Giants came to win their conferences, and how God will decide to intervene(fear?) in Super Bowl XLVI (46) at Indy.
Let us go chronologically, and start with Patriots/Ravens. This was a clear game to call on a Biblical level. Tebow thanked the 12th man this post season for win, pissing off the institution that gave us the spawn of Satan known as Rick Perry. Tom Brady's jersey number? 12. Like the disciples, tribes of Israel, and so and so forth. This hedonist is clearly God's favorite. Specific to Texans fans, justice was served with Ravens losing after last week when refs were either bribed, or lost their eye sight and called NOTHING against the Ravens. As opposed to CBS reporters pre-game saying "justice" was to Flacco for winning... You get my drift, end of story, next game.
Giants versus 49ers. Another exciting game, resulting in over time. God communicated directly through scripture and dream on this one. How? Final play of the game, game winning 31 yard field goal by # 9 Lawrence Tynes. Let's go to the 3rd book of the Bible, chapter 1, verse 9...
"But his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water: and the priest shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the Lord." - Leviticus 1:9
God was simply hungry to sweet revenge, through this sacrifice. Even Tynes immediately after the win said he dreamed of this moment. Except when he dreamed about it, he imagined it would be a 42 yard field goal instead of 31 (Super Bowl 42 was when Giants beat Patriots 17-14; add the two scores and you get length of today's field goal of "31"). Whether he misspoke, or was smart enough to make the connection is a different story.
Now we have the following scenario, God's chosen "12th Man" of hedonism from the Patriots, versus Indianaopolis' Peyton Manning brethren Eli's Giants. It is set up to be a sweet revenge match for Giants, with God as spectator. We'll see what this trickster God decides, though suspicion tells me pagan Giants will be slaughtered. Time will tell, or possibly scripture for twenty (book) 12, chapter 2 (Feb), verse 5 (Superbowl Sunday).
"And the sons of the prophets that were at Jericho came to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Lord will take away thy master from thy head to day? And he answered, Yea, I know it; hold ye your peace" - 2 Kings 2:5
Isn't prophecy rooted in Christian fundamentalism great? Or better yet how Super Bowl 46 will be the 2nd time Giants and Patriots face off to be crowned Super Bowl champions? Let's see how this human concoction Pans out with holy Bob's referencing of Tool's "46&2" from Ænema. Perhaps Arizona Bay is closer than we all realize. There might be a God after all. Let's see if people decided to learn to swim...
