Last night’s Stanford vs. USC game was one of the most exciting football games I’ve ever watched. It was certainly the biggest upset in college football this year and one of the most significant college football upsets of all time. I was on the edge of my seat the entire game. I hope you didn’t miss it: Stanford 24, USC 23.
I enjoyed listening to quarterback Tavita Pritchard give God the glory for Stanford’s win. It seems to me that one of the only media avenues in which Christianity receives any airtime or exerts any influence is in sports. Many of us are praying that the gospel would begin to more greatly transform and renew the television programs and movies coming out of Hollywood. I’d love to see that, but I’m increasingly appreciating the airtime given to athletes like Tavita Pritchard, Randy Couture, and others to testify to God’s glory and Christ’s sacrifice.
