My eldest son, a fan of both films (he is a budding filmmaker) and sports (he is a nut about NFL football and NHL hockey), writes on his blog about whether God cares who wins the Super Bowl, or an Oscar, or whatever, in the field of entertainment.
(In fact, didn’t some team win some championship recently? Ah, yes: South Africa won the rugby World Cup. Or was it someone else winning something else…? Doesn’t matter. Don’t care.)
Anyhow, I refer you to his blog and the entry of October 24, “Thou Shalt Not Thank Me for Football Excellence,” with the usual parental caution that sons sometimes express themselves in ways that fathers don’t always approve–but I like what the kid has to say this time!
