    In the Babylon of Daniel the prophet, worshipping the wrong God openly got you a one-way ticket to the Lion's Den. The same offense today gets you thrown into America's leftist media Termite Mound. Bill Maher, Bill Press and their ilk are to our social fabric what the termite is to architecture. The two Bills spearheaded the recent vicious attacks on Tim Tebow. His crime, he openly loves Jesus. Then he started to win games, culminating in last week's wildcard game. John 3:16 became the number one Google search the following morning. The introduction to the Good News of salvation...

  • Alabama Ties Notre Dame With Most National Titles In Poll Era

    Alabama Ties Notre Dame With Most National Titles In Poll Era Cork Gaines Jan. 10, 2012, 9:43 AM If you want another reason why the poll system in college football is absurd, just try to figure out how many national championships Alabama has after winning last night's BCS Championship game. Alabama claims it is their 14th national title. But according to the NCAA, Alabama has actually been recognized with 18 titles. The problem, of course, is that the NCAA does not have a system to determine the national champion on the field. Even with the BCS system, the NCAA still...
  • No BCS National Championship Game This Year

    For the first time since the BCS held its first "national championship" game after the 1998 season, there won't be any bowl game that can realistically be portrayed as a "national championship" game. This year's game can only be considered as giving the University of Alabama an opportunity to avenge its loss against Louisiana State University(LSU). The two schools can only play for the championship of the western division of the Southeast Conference(SEC). Alabama cannot even claim the championship of the SEC from a victory because that would require Alabama to defeat eastern division champion , the University of Georgia....
  • Pro Football Players’ Union Opposes Indiana Right-to-Work Law

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 7 Jan 2012 | John Semmens
    The National Football League’s Players’ Association (NFLPA) warnedIndianalegislators not to pass a “right-to-work” law in their state. The proposed legislation would bar making union membership a requirement for holding a job. Despite statistical data indicating that economic growth rates and per capita income growth is faster in states that have right-to-work laws, the NFLPA assailed such laws as “the wrong priority for Indiana. These laws undermine the incentive to place teamwork ahead of personal success. They reward selfishness rather than the solidarity and sacrifice that has helped make the NFL the glue that holds our civilization together.” While acknowledging that...

    Noman Says ^ | 1/9/11 | Noman
    Nothing makes a secular bigot sputter and vituperate like a Jesus-loving jock. Secularists across the nation are gnashing their teeth this evening over the latest Mile High miracle. Tim Tebow, whose apostolic Christianity has been a thumb in the eye of those who prefer that others keep their religion in the closet, had a big night. The Denver Broncos defeated the defending AFC Champion Pittsburgh Steelers (along with their bad-boy quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger) 29-23 in a first round playoff game, the first overtime game played under new, stricter rules. It ended on the first play from scrimmage in overtime with...
  • Tebow Critics Get "Tebotomy." No Fair Praying?

    I'm not a big time football fan, even though I played my fair share of football back in the day. What a thrilling end to the Denver - Pittsburgh game when Saint Tebow threw the game winning, overtime pass to the similarly remarkable Demaryius Thomas. Just as interesting as the game itself has been the media's game of trashing Tim Tebow for his praying and showing "excessive celebration" on the field by kneeling on the turf, poining his fingers up to the Lord, and other Christian confessions. The media has lightened up a bit after seeing and believing Tim's...

    Well, the statistics are in and NFL football star Tim Tebow has yet one more sterling accomplishment--but this one is not about football. It's about his book, "Through My Eyes," about his Christian life story. With staggeringly high sales, Tim Tebow has become the #1 best-selling religious author in America for 2011. Tim explains how his dad told him early in life that becoming a star gives a person a platform for good or evil. He also taught Tim that success opens the door to all sorts of temptations. So Tim purposed in his heart to become a good role...

    Tim Tebow's devotion to his religious beliefs is nothing new, but you'd never know it based on what the media is doing to him. At HuffPo: Brady Slays TebowDrudge: GOD LOVES TOM, TOO...SI: Love him. Doubt him. Praise him. Ridicule him. Gape in awe. As the last two months have shown, there are 300 million opinions of the Broncos' quarterback, and every one of them is right SNL mocks him for his religious devotion. And of course there is the incomparably disgusting and idiotic Bill Maher: A "Tebowing.com" site has been created. The cynic in me has doubts about its...

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | December 22, 2011 | Malcolm A. Kline
    One of the fascinating little oddities of academic research is the amount of intellectual capital that the best and the brightest spend in order to catch up with the rest of us. “We consider the relationship between collegiate-football success and non-athlete student performance,” three economists from the University of Oregon write in a recent study. “We find that the team’s success significantly reduces male grades relative to female grades.” “This phenomenon is only present in fall quarters, which coincides with the football season. Using survey data, we find that males are more likely than females to increase alcohol consumption, decrease...

    Best of luck to Tim Tebow and the Broncos against the Patriots this afternoon. Watching liberals’ heads explode when Tebow succeeds is even more entertaining than his stunning performances on the football field. Considering all the thugs and cutthroats who can be found in professional sports, why do they hate a decent guy like Tim Tebow? It’s simple: because they are moonbats and Tebow is good. Bill Maher, arguably the vilest creature ever to slither out of the entertainment establishment, spews Tebow hatred in the context of lefty ideology:

    CBS Sports Blog ^ | 12/17/11 | Tom Fornelli
    There hasn't exactly been a lot of good news about the Penn State football program in recent months, and the program got a bit more on Saturday. There are multiple reports coming out of State College that quarterback Matt McGloin got into a fight with receiver Curtis Drake following practice on Saturday. A fight that ended with McGloin being knocked out cold. The details of what happened or what caused the fight are still sketchy at this point, but apparently there was a heated exchange during practice, and when Drake approached McGloin in the locker room after practice, things went...

    Every so often I want to watch some TV program in my PC. Ok, it usually is football! When I google "this game lifestream" I usually get lots of sites from where I can download something for free that will allow me to watch the game. But I don't know anything about that site, how safe it is... Does any body have any recommendations? At least, does someone know how I can watch the Denver-New England game tomorrow? Thanks

    Last week the feds indicted Chicago Bears receiver Sam Hurd on drug charges as reported by The Associated Press: "the police said he told an undercover agent he was interested in buying 5 to 10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week to distribute in the Chicago area." It's funny because the line between athletes and thugs is becoming increasingly blurred. Indeed, investigators are "finding a growing connection between gangs and sports, with athletes getting caught up in senseless gang violence at times" as reported by CBS News: "a survey of 130 top athletic programs . ....
  • N.Y. teens suspended for Tebowing in school hallway

    On Wednesday, a group of high school athletes at a Long Island school were suspended for staging a spontaneous bout of Tebowing in their high school's hallway. According to Connor Carroll, a senior, the Riverhead administration handed out one-day suspensions to four student athletes after a group of Riverhead students decided to spontaneously hold a group Tebowing session in the school. Tebowing, a relatively harmless act which emerged amidst the rapid rise of the Denver Broncos quarterback, is meant to be an homage to the second-year passer's religiously focused touchdown celebrations. While as many as 40 teens (with some participants...

  • Brandon Short Defends JoePa

    An email purported to be from linebacking legend Brandon Short is circulating around the Net and describes how football coach Joe Paterno behaved on the day after his Nov. 9 firing from Penn State in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Short says that he and his wife spent part of Nov. 10 with Paterno. The email says Paterno was more concerned about how his current and former players were affected than himself, and was talked out of holding a press conference. Among Short's revelations is that Paterno specifically says that Coach Mike McQueary never told him "that he...
