From the "Sublime" to the "Ridiculous" ? No I think not...

After the fact update... WOW!! The Saints WON the game! We had such family fun with this event, phone calls and texts back and forth from the Smith Sibs who were not at the house, shouts of "WHO DAT?" were all around. The boys laughed at me for crocheting during THE SUPER BOWL, but I reminded them that I would always remember having fun with the family while I was making Daniel's blanket and later when I use it for him, I'll have a tangible memory of the night as well as a really pretty blue and green blanket keeping Daniel warm!

Ok I am not a huge football fan, and not even usually a Super Bowl fan, but its LOUISIANA: the Saints and their first trip to this big event EVER. The Colts are favored to win, and they may. BUT.It is sure fun seeing our Saints play so hard. I may have lived in central Oklahoma for 10 whole years this week, but Louisiana will always HOME and I am experiencing some real home state team loyalty. Its all in good fun; some of the commercials are truly funny and (since I missed it doing something in the kitchen for my mom) I HEAR that the Tebow spot was really good.........yes, its family night in front of the tv to watch football . YES, I am crocheting Daniel's new blanket too!!! AS we /they say in "Naw'lins" GEAUX SAINTS!!! The opening play of the second half was just pretty football-lovin' awesome....especially if you ARE a Saints' fan!

I wonder if I missed another Tebow commercial? The one I saw did not elude to the fact that his mom was told to abort and I only knew that from watching some other program. If the back story wasn't told I think the message was lost. It was a good story too, it needed to be told!

Ranee,
From what I saw later . the comercial referenced goingto Focus onthe Family's web site to hear the whole story. I saw the spot on internet news after the game. It was PRETTY NON-OFFENSIVE to my way of thinking. A "pro- abortion choice" spot could not have been as non-offensive...no way!!!

I believe I was watching one of those hype it up for a week superbowl shows that my dh was glued to considering it was the Colts playing.

They did tell the story, of how his mother was advised and strongly said NO to abortion. Their whole thing was so if you don't abort your baby against medical advice it will grow up to be Tim Tebow? Is that the message.

Kind of a sore subject with me since my dearest aunt went through this and was told to abort as well, SHE DID NOT, however she has much a different outcome. Still, she knew she had a "clear" heart still and did what she felt she was supposed to do in her God's eyes.
