The Deflated Falcons

What a spectacle that was witnessed in last night’s Super Bowl. As a Denver fan, I am NOT a Patriots fan, however, I can respect greatness when I see it. This idea was suggested to me after the game concluded. Being in the middle of 20 million projects right now, I loved the concept, but realized I didn’t have a whole lot of time to knock it out. This is one hour’s worth of work, but it came out pretty good. If you find it funny, feel free to pass it along, just be sure to give me, Benjamin Hummel, the credit.

Day of Rest

Just my feelings after every Bronco’s win this season.

Tiny Tim

Usually this time of year, I’ll do a cartoon about how we are losing our right to celebrate publically the spiritual meaning of Christmas. But this year, I simply could not pass up the glaringly obvious play on words with Tim Tebow and Tiny Tim.

While it may appear so at first glance, I’m not knocking Tebow. If you have followed previous columns, I’m actually an unabashed fan of Tebow’s and I’m very thankful that the Broncos organization finally gave Tebow his chance. Sure, he looks shaky in the passing game, but I think that’s something that will improve with time and game practice.

What’s really fascinating to watch is the national response to Tebow. He is a man of conviction. He’s somebody who is not ashamed of his beliefs nor is he afraid to espouse them, something that’s rare in today’s politically correct age. And because of this, he has raving fans on one side and haters on the other. Outspoken people, like Tebow, do not elicit nonresponses. You either love him or hate him.

I listened to some of the rhetoric being said about Tebow. One lady called in the radio station and lambasted Tebow for using the public airways to proclaim Christianity. She said that the public airways needs to be guarded against religious speech as it has no place on television or the radio. Soooo… according to her, free speech only applies to inside your home. Or perhaps religious speech doesn’t fall under the banner of free speech. Not quite sure, never really understood that logic.

Another crazy item to observe is the disparity between how Republicans verses Democrats respond to Tebow. According to a Public Policy Poll, Tebow is viewed favorably by 68% of Republicans but only 39% of Democrats. (source: http://www.denverpost.com/sports/ci_19610585) Sarah Palin even came out with her own endorsement of Tebow. I’m trying to figure out why that many Democrats don’t like Tebow. Do they not like faith? Miracles? Work ethic? Buzz cuts?

Certainly, many of the wins have been nothing short of miraculous. I really don’t think God cares who wins football games. And I don’t think that it is a measure of who has more praying fans. But I do know that God honors those who give Him the glory. And if Tebow winning accomplishes that feat, watch out America.

I’m hoping that the Broncos, my preferred team, starts winning with a little dominance here soon. A playoff run would be nice. Although, since I didn’t predict they would win more than four games this year, what they have already accomplished is more than beyond my expectations. This has been a fabulous ride.
