EVERYONE should pick a team to win on #SuperBowlSunday
It reflects:
1. The Ability to Choose
2. The Power to Commit
3. The Practice of Being Mindful
Your team isn’t playing? So what!?!
This is the last game of the season and the pinnacle of the year’s work.
… and you’ll have a talking point for the next 4 months plus. #Extroverts

For #SuperbOwlSunday:
Let me introduce Ornimegalonyx oteroi, the Cuban Giant Owl, which stood up to 1.1 m high (3.6 ft) and weighed between 9 and 30 kg (20-66 lb).

It went extinct about 6,000 years ago, but during Miocene, they likely hunted mammals: seal pups, large rodents. Image
Because the Cuban Giant was probably flightless (wings too small for sustained flight), they probably were adapted to run with an assist from undersized wings, or took their buddy's sweet vintage VW Bug, as pictured here. Image
Besides pouncing on prey from rocky cliffs, they also lured food items by re-enacting that scene from Titanic, and waiting for a stupid mammal to shout : "I'm king of the world!" so they can pounce on them. Image

It’s #SuperBowlSunday! Found these @Chiefs fans at The Tavern downtown @austintexasgov. Some got here as early as 7:00AM. I’ll be talking to one superfan live on @KVUE at 5:30! ImageImageImageImage
Loved hearing @JeffJoniak again “@D_Hest23 you are RIDICULOUS” in the pregame
How many people just lost a bet on the coin toss? #SuperBowl2020

I've spent a large part of the past four years studying and writing about the history of sports & Christianity in the United States. For #SuperBowlSunday, here's a thread of my football-related essays
1. My first piece on the subject was with @ReligPolitics, a look at the blending of faith and football in my home state of Nebraska…
2. With @hhampton44, I co-wrote a piece for @CTmagazine on the theological debates over football in the game’s early years…

Oh heyyyy it's #SuperBowlSunday

Ok cool now can we talk about how the U.S. locks up huge numbers of people for being too poor to afford a lawyer who can spend more than 5 minutes on their defense…
Seriously though: few aspects of America's broken criminal justice system get less attention than the public defender crisis.

Years of underfunding have blown a huge hole in the constitutional right to counsel, literally setting up a 2-tiered system of justice based on income.
Worth noting: In addition to adequate funding to ensure PDs have caseloads that allow them to meaningfully represent their clients... decriminalizing poverty would also go a long way towards reducing caseloads bloated by "offenses" that shouldn't be crimes in the first place.

1. What if the EAGLES win the Super Bowl tonight BIGLY?
Brady refuses to shake Foles hand
He stomps off the field & does NO interviews

Then we wake up tomorrow to the headline:


and then ...
2. As Americans are up in arms over the news?

It comes out the Patriots provided the "proof" to the NFL
2 weeks BEFORE the game

The evidence was from investigators hired by the Patriots
Backed up by stories from a Patriot fan sports blog

There would be RIOTS!

3. The Patriots are odds on favorites to win the Super Bowl
Some experts say by +10 pts
Some argue the Patriots cheat to win
Some say the NFL lets them cheat

Sounds like a Presidential election not too long ago
