Yesterday as I geared up to watch the Patriots play the Jets in the divisional round of the playoffs I thought, “I wonder how many sermons will be preached tonight on the faithful few who gave up watching one of the most important football games of the year (at least for Patriots fans) to be at evening services.”
I thought I was pretty awesome for being above such silliness.
And then the unthinkable happened … the Patriots lost to the stinkin’ Jets!
As I sat in my recliner with my beer and nachos in hand and stewed over how badly I hated being a Patriots fan, I thought “Man, I wish I had done something else tonight…”
Things I would rather have done in order of preference:
- Walked on Burning Coals
- Eaten worms
- Gone to Evening Services
- Read a Twilight book
