My First Interview With God.

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Auto & Home & Life Insurance throughout North Carolina

Quick preface here:  I recently wrote a post about Tim Tebow.  Frankly,
I'm tired of folks giving him a bad rap for being a religious fellow.
While I'm not by definition the religious type, seems to me that Tim
is a great kid and a better role model than most professional athletes.
I ended that post with the following:

"And if Denver faces Pittsburgh in the Playoffs, two believers (Troy & Tebow)
will collide.  My guess is the better Football Team will win.  And God will face
a more interesting challenge, like who will replace Andy Rooney on 60 minutes?"

As reality would have it, guess who is playing in one of the AFC Wildcard Games? ...
Denver & Pittsburgh.  Of note, I'm a Pittsburgh fan.  That written, what transpires
before you is my very first interview with God:


Sardi - Thank you so much for joining me tonight.  I gotta ask, how are you?

God - I'm God.

Sardi - Good point.  Well let me get to it.  There is so much I want to ask, but
I won't at this juncture.  Rather than delving into war and destruction, the meaning
of life, who will win the upcoming election, and why Lennon was shot and Ringo survives,
I kind of wanted to go a different route here this evening...

God - They are your fingers and your thoughts, go right ahead.

Sardi - Your thoughts on Tim Tebow?

God - Great kid, nice story.

Sardi - Yeah, I agree.  You're awfully pithy.

God - Pithy?  You watch too much O'Reilly.

Sardi - Good point again.  I should watch more Pat Robertson.

God - I'm not quite sure about that.  I don't even watch him.  Why do you ask about Tim?

Sardi - Because I'm a Steelers fan and I know he has a close relationship with you.
And I was wondering if the game on Sunday would have a "12th Man" on the field that
may disrupt any potential Pittsburgh win.

God - You think I would get involved in a football game?

Sardi - Not necessarily, yet football is a part of life and you are a HUGE part of life
and it didn't seem a far philosophical stretch to at least ask the question.

God - What college did you attend again?

Sardi - You don't know?  But you're God!

God - I should have been your Academic Advisor because that philosophical
stretch you speak about would've made me turn you in the direction of
majoring in finances rather than the deep questions of this life.

Sardi - Okay, well who will be replacing the iconic Andy Rooney then?

God - Is Sheen sober these days?  Nevermind.  I hear Glenn Beck may be looking for work.

Sardi -  And the latter is sober these days, at least from a blood alcohol standpoint.  Whatever.  Fair enough, so about the game?

God - May the best team win.

Sardi - No predictions?

God - Not a one.

Sardi - Why?

God - Personally, I'm a Colts fan and centering my resources into the upcoming draft.

Well, Mahr is very much 'anti-religion' and always has been and Suggs is just talking smack.  But from the coverage of Tebow, you'd think the media (et al) were storming his house with torches....or crosses.  Tebow is not being persecuted for his beliefs, though 'the right' want's us to believe that he's just another example of the so-called 'War on Christians' by those damn 'liberal-elites.' It's just so much bull shit.

I've always felt it was patently ridiculous that the big guy (no, the other big guy) would be the least bit involved in the outcome of something so trivial as a football game.

He has much more important considerations on his table.  Wars, tsunamis, global warming, whether snookie is anorexic or not, how many licks it really does take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?

By the way.. I, too, interviewed the big kahuna a ways back... and he was gracious as all get out.  I'm impressed that he's acquiessed for you and me, and still holds Barbara Walters at bay.  We rock!

Just wondering what your thoughts were on the game and the 316 total yards and the 31.6 average.  Coincidence?

@ Tammy - Let me reiterate that I believe God has no interest in football.  Coincidence?  Probably.  Just like the opening kickoff bounced off the goal post and landed exactly on the twenty.  Fact is, Tim played a very good game as did Denver.  The better team one.  But let's also call a spade a spade.  Pitt lost their two starting Defensive Lineman before the second half, were without their starting Safety, Pro Bowl Center, starting Tailback, and Big Ben was 75% at best.  So that may have had a little bit to do with it as well.  No matter, Denver deserved to win and I'm happy for the fans and the organization.  Tim's a good kid, hope all this hype doesn't end up treating the reality of his career unfairly.  In some facet, it may already have.

Jason,  I am late to this party, but loved your post.  And, not from your home town, but definitely a Steelers fan.  Inherited it from my Son...he lives, eats and breathes the Steelers.......  Ahhh, next year!
