I enjoy watching the Super Bowl every year with friends, and lots of food. Most years like this year I don’t have a favorite that I am rooting for. Usually my teams don’t make it into the Super Bowl. My strangest Super Bowl was when I was in England doing a seminar for a group of Churches. When the pastor who arranged it called and asked me to speak, and suggested the dates they wanted me, I initially said that I couldn’t come on those dates because I would miss the Super Bowl. He so much wanted the seminar on those dates that he said that he would find me a place to watch it. What we both forgot about was the time difference between here and England. The game started there at 1 AM in the morning and got over at 4:30 AM. I preached most all day on Friday and Saturday and then preached a sermon in two different churches on Sunday morning, one at 9 and the second at 11 am and then a third church at 6 pm in the evening. The Pastor wanted to keep his word to me so he found a church member who had a large television and liked American football and talked a half dozen of the pastors who had attended the seminar to watch it with me. I talked non -stop the first half of the game explaining the rules to them as they asked me why such and such was happening. By the time half time was over every one of them was sound asleep in their chair and by the time the 3rd quarter was over I was as well. I wouldn’t have been sleeping if it had been this years game. That had to be one of the most exciting games I have ever seen. I can’t imagine how exciting it would have been to a die hard Patriots fan.
