March Memories

In the spirit of March Madness, I'd love to hear everyone's favorite March Madness Memory (or MMM lol). I haven't been a college basketball fan for too long, but a few years ago I realized the error of my ways:

I was at a church function held at one of my friend's house. It was the elite eight game between Michigan State and Kentucky. I am a Tennessee fan de jure, therefore a Kentucky fan de facto, as a result of my overall SEC fandom. Anyway, Kentucky went on to lose the game but the shot by Patrick Sparks to send it to overtime produced a hollywood-esque sports moment that has only been replicated by the David Tyree catch in the superbowl. The second he launched the three everyone went hushed. It hit the rim once, bounced again, bounced one more time, and sank. When it did, the whole room erupted. It was great. Ever since then, despite being generally a bigger football fan than basketball fan, I have considered March madness to be the single greatest sporting event in the world.

Well thanks for checking out my blog! I can't wait to read about other fan's MMM's!

Tired of all the Christian-Bashing

Over the past several days, I have been scanning the message boards as usual, looking for something to catch my eye, and I have come across a couple of threads that disturb me deeply. The first one was just an atheist who "just had to b**** about something" (quoting him there). I kept on reading and eventually posted a couple of messages. I wasn't shocked to see all the anti-chritsian material, but it still doesn't make me happy. Then I found something that made me a little happier. A thread of basically a testimony from superbowlchamps. Again, I prepared myself for the antichristians to hurl thier criticisms and again I saw them. My point is though is that it's not neccessary. I understand that they don't agree with it and that it's thier right to not believe, but how much amusement and enjoyment do they really get out of it? How many of these antichristians are now going to spend thier time attempting to cut me down now that I'm writing this? I just think it's a bit ridiculous and I applaud my fellow christians who have been brave enough to stand up for thier beliefs and encourage my quieter fellow christians to speak up as well.
