Super Bowl Champions

I can’t begin to express my excitement that my Giants won the Super Bowl. Yeah Giants! Let’s give a shout out to Eli Manning, game MVP and quarterback extraordinaire. That pass he made under pressure to David Tyree and Tyree’s catch on his helmet was a beautiful thing. The last touchdown with less than three minutes to the game was amazing. Tom and I jumped up and down and expressed our joy with disregard to our voices.

The Patriots played a good game. They had a perfect record until tonight. The look of defeat on their faces made me feel bad for them. It proves that you can have a perfect record but lose the big game and it’s like your season didn’t really matter. I think that’s a shame. They are a great team.

As excited as I am that we won, when it comes to sports there are winners and losers. I have to hand it to my team. They were the underdogs for the last three games they played, yet they won against Dallas, Green Bay and now New England. Sometimes the little guys win.

In life there are winners and losers if you look at society alone. That’s what I love about God’s kingdom. If you are for Him you always win. I’m not saying that you don’t have hard times and that bad things don’t happen to you. What I’m saying is when you’re on God’s team you win. In His kingdom the little guys win (remember David and Goliath).

Romans 8:28 says, “All things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”

I want to send out my sympathies to the fans of New England because if we loss, I would be sad. Tonight loss does not take away from your team’s great season. Congratulations to the Giants. I celebrate tonight with the fans in New York and all across this land. For those of you my friends who were cheering my team on tonight . . . I love you.

No wonder I didn't see anything earlier...you were watching the game.
Glad you're feeling better. I was a little concerned there for a minute.
Don't know much about football other than what one looks like. :)

Have a beautiful week,
Kate

It was agreat game, I was going for the Patriots. It was a fun game and we had a great Superbowl party so the loss didn't bother us too much.

Sorry to hear you were ill, hope your feeling better today.

It was a great game, and I was very glad for you and Tom that the Giants won. I am not a huge football fan. So when the Giants were ahead I was imagining how you and Tom were shouting and whooping. When the Patriots made a good play I was thinking of my relies in Boston. It was a very fun game, glad you got to enjoy it so much.

And I do hope you are all feeling much better in the health department too!

None of us really cared who would win the Super bowl since the Packers were out (we are from the MidWest) so to make the game more interesting we each had to choose a side and then guess the outcome of the game. I picked the Giants over the Patriots by 3 points. It was pretty cool that I guessed correctly. Congrats to your Giants!

Enjoy the joy!

Not all that into tv as of late and now that we are not in the US the Superbowl Sunday passed unnoticed.

I am glad you team won! Underdogs winning always make me smile.

Yes as always there will be winner and there will be loser. More important is everyone 'fight' in good spirit and friendship prevails with no hard feelings :D

Congratulation on the win!

Well we never watch football, only the 'Super Bowl'...and I was cheering for my home team the "Patriots", but I lived in NY for a couple of years also and I was very happy for their win, they played a good game and they deserve the title...

Good Post...Chris

I am glad that your favorite team won :)
As I was reading your post, I was reminded that no matter how 'good' one is during a life-time, but don't have Jesus in your life - you lose out at the end...As you said 'in His kingdom - you are a winner'.
