A miracle from the Almighty occurred in Denver today. Tim Tebow's prayers were evidently heard and answered. Please allow me to reconstruct the miracle for you:
It is the 4th quarter with less than 2 minutes to go. The score is Chicago 10, Denver 7. Denver is out of timeouts.
Chicago had the ball. All they had to do was run out the clock and win the game.
For inexplicable reasons, Chicago running back, Marion Barber, runs out of bounds, stopping the clock. This gave Denver time to try and make a comeback.
Denver drives down the field and on 4th down with just a few seconds left, Denver is ready to try a 58 yard field goal, sending the game into overtime.
Beautiful, sweet Wifey, who cares little for football says, "I hate overtime, but I hope he makes it. I want to see Tim Tebow win."
The kick is GOOD! The game is tied and goes to overtime.
The Broncos win in overtime with another long 51 yard field goal.
And so we have a miracle in Denver. The much maligned Christian QB, Tim Tebow said, "It shows, if you believe, unbelievable things can happen. That was a great comeback for this team, led by the defense and the coaches. And a team that constantly believes."
Interesting play on words, doncha think? It was one of the ugliest games I ever remember watching but I have a feeling it will be one long remembered.
I doubt God cares much about football, but I think He appreciates it when one of His creations gives Him credit.
