t was January 14, 1990, and I was out for revenge! My beloved Cleveland Browns had experienced the "Drive" and the "Fumble" and all without me there to cheer them on. On that day, I entered Mile High Stadium with a small entourage of six friends (two of them Denver fans) determined to turn the tide of winning a championship game in favor of the Browns. One of my clients helped me make a sign that read:


We not only got past the security guards with this sign but I was in a section that faced out to the parking lots where all of the fans were entering the stadium. It was just high enough to let everyone see it as they arrived, but also high enough that fans who tried to climb up the outside wall could not get high enough to reach it and pull it down. The sign stayed up the entire game. Despite my best efforts, Cleveland could not win that game either and they have wallowed ever since their return to the NFL as a perennial loser.

My reasoning for confession of this long past civil disobedience is not because of moral conviction, but because of the actions of the Broncos this past weekend in the NFL draft. Their coaching staff and management moved beyond all of the smartest minds in football and drafted Tim Tebow in the FIRST round. Perhaps you think I am naive to the point of thinking Denver drafted him just because of his positive character. No, they drafted him because they think he will help them win football games. But they do love who he is as a man for sure.

I have asked you on many previous MMM’s to pray for Tim in his efforts to present a positive Christian witness to the world and I continue that request. It appears that he will have another stage to show how a man can serve The Lord and be a witness to a world that seems to value the most pragmatic of virtues. I never thought I would live to say this, but THANK YOU DENVER BRONCOS! I will start cheering for you after all!!

Luke 21:34-36 (NIV) "Be careful, or your hearts will be weighted down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth. Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man."
