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 religionandpolitics.org/2015/03/17/neb…
2. With @hhampton44, I co-wrote a piece for @CTmagazine on the theological debates over football in the game’s early years christianitytoday.com/history/2017/s…

U! F! O!

April, 1976 gave the world UFO Warrior Dai Apolon (UFO Senshi Dai-Apolon).

Call it luck, call it fate, but today, #SuperRobotSunday falls on #SuperBowlSunday in a perfect mix of football and robots.
Japanese orphan/quarterback Takeshi learns that he's the lost prince of the planet Apolon, sent to Earth to escape the assassins who murdered his father in the name of General Dazaan, whose soldiers have now reached Earth in their march for conquest.

Takeshi and his friends get access to UFO fighter planes. Takeshi himself can dock with three robots: Header, Trangur & Legger, who then combine to form the mighty Daiapolon. Naturally he had football-themed weapons. The show ran for 47 episodes.

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

nytimes.com/interactive/20…
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.

US gives $500 million in taxpayer funding each year to PP
PP spent $30 million to help the Dem win back the house
PP Donated Millions to Virgina Gov

Should it be legal for a taxpayer [D+R+I] funded org. to donate money to the D party?

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:

NFL INVESTIGATING EAGLES! - 'COLLUSION WITH REFS' MAY OVERTURN WIN!

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!

@instapundit
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
