3½ Time-Outs Tuesday

Thanks to Mr. Larry D for hosting! Now head over to Acts of the Apostasy for more time-outs, and then write your own!


Look! There’s a halo over Mile High Stadium!! It must be God smiling down upon Tebow!! Oooor… perhaps it’s the fireworks they set off every time Denver scores. I don’t know, what are the odds??

Look, these ridiculous “signs” that Tebow fans everywhere are constantly on the lookout for are beginning to make Christians, in general, look awfully superstitious and silly. And if I hear one more friend or acquaintance utter the phrase “just have faith in Tebow” – I might just become a Raiders fan out of spite. What is there to have faith in anyway? IT’S A GAME. Do people think that God’s got money on it or something? 


Well, for some time I’ve apparently had my head in the sand and not even known that such a show as Downton Abbey exists. I think I finally gave the show a look after Jennifer Fulwiler mentioned it last week. I hopped on over to PBS’s website and watched the first episode of the first season. And then the second. And then the third. You get where this is going.

And now I think it’s safe to say I’m bloody well hooked!! Not that they talk like that on the show… that’s just how I talk. After watching Downton Abbey for five hours. In any case, if you haven’t seen it, do give the series a chance. You’ll love the characters, the wardrobe, and the story – and of course the accents, oh the accents!!


Imagine my surprise and delight when I found out my dear hubs just happened to come across this tiny, talking Chewbacca, and knew that I must have it. So he bought it for me! And yes it DOES make the Wookiee call! Be jealous.


Just the other evening I thought I saw green headlights on a car as it passed by. Indeed, and it apparently gets worse than that.

    I have a Tebow post coming out soon.

    And I never thought of 3-1/2 being marsupial. But it makes sense in a non-linear sorta way.

  2. Well, you know, numbers really should be less linear IMO, so…

    Great then, I look forward to your Tebow post, Larry!

    Oddly I just posted something on Patrick’s page earlier today, as a comment, about the Tebow stuff and its escalating absurdity…not so much picking on Tebow himself but the fans in this case who have yes indeed gone nuts…I should have posted it on both of your pages but I will copy it here too just for fun since I think it fits your post even better. I had posted it under his New Year’s article so that is why the mention of NY resolutions…anyway it is copied below:

    “Granted this has NOTHING much to do with this thread, except or unless you wish to include Tim Tebow in your NY Resolutions in some way. I am sure that was just an oversight on your part, Patrick.

    In any case this weekend, since his 316 yard game, fans all over FB and Twitter are beginning to look for ‘signs in the Bible.’ I would contend that, rather than JOHN 3:16, perhaps it is Revelation 3:16, or even Nahum 3:16. I am voting Nahum personally, although Revelation 3:16 is an interesting alternative. Something about being spit out of somewhere…Now, since we know that ‘context is king,’ one needs to read through verses 15-17 to fully appreciate this possibility. I will quote it in full since we all know that Catholics do not actually own or look at Bibles…

    [15] There will the fire devour you,
    the sword will cut you off.
    It will devour you like the locust.
    Multiply yourselves like the locust,
    multiply like the grasshopper!
    [16] You increased your merchants
    more than the stars of the heavens.
    The locust spreads its wings and flies away.
    [17] Your princes are like grasshoppers,
    your scribes like clouds of locusts
    settling on the fences
    in a day of cold —
    when the sun rises, they fly away;
    no one knows where they are.

    The interpretation is simple:

    What’s the big deal with the lights? We’ve been doing this on motorcycles since 1989… no kidding… check us out – we’re the real deal! Okay, so we don’t have cool music on our video…

    I am sad that Tebow was not photoshopped into your Jeopardy picture at the top of the post.

    And why is Newt so tall?🙂

    • Well because God made him that way, Joe:) Ron is the only photoshop casualty until next time, when I do indeed inflict my wrath upon Tebow!!!! Muahaha!

      • Joseph K. says:

        I was being sarcastic about Newt, because I wanted to act like I didnt notice Paul’s photoshop. I guess I forgot to switch to my Sarcasm font.

        Also, due to you… I am going to watch D.A. … cuz I am a follower like that, and your brain keying on something makes me think mine will too.

    • The day I need a sarcasm font is a sad day… or maybe just a day when I need to lay off the pinot gris whilst replying to comments.🙂

      Yay for pier pressure on the D.A. front! Let me know what you think.
