Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. – 1 Corinthians 9:24 (NIV)

Football is my favorite sport to watch, so when the season ends it leaves a big void in my life.

The Sunday Message

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.1 Corinthians 9:24 (NIV)

Today is Super Bowl 50. One team will leave the field with the prize of being the best team in the NFL.

I played football in middle school and high school. I loved the teamwork. I loved the camaraderie with teammates. There’s nothing much like it. You can learn a lot about life by playing the game of football. I remember as a team saying “The Lord’s Prayer” before we took the field.

OK, I love football, maybe too much. I get a little depressed when the season ends. The depression starts when football is not on during Mondays and Thursdays and Sunday nights. When the Super Bowl ends, I kind of feel there’s a void in my life for a few days.

Last year a record 114.4 million viewers tuned into to Super Bowl XLIX (49) where the Patriots topped the Seahawks. I guess I am not alone in my love for the game.

According to CBS Sports:

There have only been seven shows in American television history that have topped 100 million viewers — and six of those are Super Bowls. The only non-Super Bowl to top the 100 million viewer mark came in February 1983 when the M*A*S*H finale drew 106 million viewers on CBS.

If you watch the game today have fun and enjoy yourself – Is this a great country or what?

Football is like life – it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority. – Vince Lombardi
