Does God care about football?

The best answer I have heard to this question comes from the movie, "Facing the Giants."
Which leads me to the question, "Does God care about the movies?"
Same answer.
Just replace a few of the words and switch it around a bit.

"Brock Kelley: So you think that God does care about football?

Grant Taylor: I think He cares about your faith. He cares about where your heart is. And if you can live your faith out on the football field then yes, God cares about football because He cares about you. He sent His son Jesus to die for us so we could live for Him. That's why we're here. But see, it's not just on the football field; we've got to honor Him in our relationships, our respect for authority, in the classroom, and when you're at home alone surfing the internet. I want God to bless this team so much that people talk about what He did. But it means we got to give Him our best in every area. If we win, we praise Him. And if we loose, we praise Him. Either way, we honor Him with our actions and our attitudes. So I'm asking you: what are you living for? I've resolved to give God everything I've got. Then I'll leave the results up to Him. I want to know if you'll join me?"

My friend, Randy, has met and spent some time with Tim Tebow, and his family.
Which clearly makes us like family with the Tebow's.
By this same formula, I am also related to Chuck Norris, John Piper, Third Day, Chris Tomlin and a host of other famous people.
I am like the crazy old aunt who shuffles around makes pickled beets and wears Nordic sweaters all year long.
 I accept this.
Here is a link to Randy's blog about "Timmy" today.
