Double Indemnity...

An Interesting Football Story

American football, I mean. Really, it is. And in the New York Times. You don't have to know anything about football, just that Tim Tebow plays quarterback, which is the single most important position on a football team, that he was one of the top players in the country when he was in college but hasn't done so well as a professionial, and that he's an evangelical Christian who's very open about his faith (too open for many people, of course).

As a footnote to the story: Tebow was in the game for a while last night against the Tennessee Titans and didn't do very well, though it's hard to say how much of it was his fault. Tennessee did not fear his passing ability at all and blitzed repeatedly and successfully. So the Jets put the starting quarterback in and lost the game anyway.

Well that really was interesting. Almost miraculous!

And I really liked the headline.

See, I told you.:-)

One thing that struck me was that I didn't necessarily see the little girl's lack of injury as miraculous or near-miraculous. Providential but not miraculous. Small children have a way of taking tumbles without getting hurt.

That's true about little kids, Maclin, but even if they are pretty bouncy, I always think their guardian angels work overtime!
