An ideal Super Bowl



All in all, Super Bowl Sunday this year will be interesting, at best. Will New Jersey get smacked by sleet and snow? The ticket prices have already dropped in anticipation of the bad weather. Other factors for the attendees to consider will be if the storm hits, the airlines may not be able to fly out the following day. The fans might end up stranded in New Jersey longer than expected, not a comfort zone for travelers coming from other states.

But oh, the joy of watching the teams deemed the finest play their hearts out for that coveted ring. There’s a lot at stake and every player will give it their all. Perhaps that’s why so many enjoy this particular game so much. It all comes down to this. If you win, you’re the Super Bowl champions. If you lose, you’re just yesterday’s news.

So I was thinking about what kind of half-time show I would like to see if I could select it myself. I think it would be pretty cool to have God send down 20 to 30 thousand angels, let them float down on the field in all their glory, dance and sing, play their harps and other instruments and then — poof — return up to heaven, without the smoke.

Of course this will never happen. Not that God won’t be watching the Super Bowl — I’m sure He will have His eye on the game along with past Super Bowl champions and fans who are up in Heaven watching with Him from above.
