Ode to #4

As I'm sure everyone knows (because they follow such things) Brett Favre announced his retirement from the Packers on Monday. Funny thing is, I think this helped me understand what the apostles must have went through when Christ left them. Exclamations of "No, we're not ready! Just a little while longer!" can be heard throughout the state of Wisconsin (pertaining to Brett) at this moment as I am most sure the apostles exclaimed as well (pertaining to Jesus, not Brett Favre). But the thing is, the impact had already been left. Jesus had equipped the Apostles to carry on in His absence and even left that Holy Spirit to really move things along. And as we can see, it clearly worked because from that rose the early church and from that, we were able to know Christ too. All that to say, I have hope for the future of the Packers. Will it be the same? Of course not. But, Brett has left his impact on his team; they have to carry on in his absence.

Of course, if I listen to what Jesus says here, I should give up football all together.

My question is:
Does my "Jesus is my Homeboy" trucker hat qualify for rule number 3?

I think so, but you should wear a fake beard with it.

So, in your analogy, would Don Majkowski = John the Baptist?

Great post. And Aaron, that is my all-time favorite comment.

That's funny Aaron, because my mother and I were having the hardest time remembering who came before Favre yesterday. But yes, as a matter of fact, he did pave the way just like John the Baptist. You are correct.
