September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

This guy is like on MK Ultra Mind Control...

8/9/16
Tim Tebow is baseball’s chance to make up for Michael Jordan

I remember the pitchforks-and-torches anger in 1994 when Michael Jordan announced he was going to try to play major league baseball.

The “how-dare-he” fury that came with him signing with the White Sox to be shipped to Double-A Birmingham was intense. Who was Jordan to think, at age 31, he could skip all the standard protocols necessary to play the sport at the highest level?

The grander point was missed then. The most popular athlete in the world wanted to play baseball. If he defied all odds and succeeded, great, then the most popular athlete in the world was playing baseball. And if he failed, he a) brought attention to the game; b) used his very loud megaphone to profess his love for the sport to his millions of fans around the world; and c) accentuated just how tough it is to play major league baseball, because the greatest athlete in the world would have failed at it.

The institution of baseball should have embraced this attempt and marketed the hell out of it. I don’t think it was a publicity stunt. I think Jordan — a competitive zealot — really wanted to make the majors. But even if it was a publicity stunt, so what? It was a valuable one.

Which brings us to Tim Tebow.

If my Twitter account provides any kind of unscientific polling, I already see the pitchforks and torches at the ready again.

Through his agents, Tebow announced Tuesday he has been training to try to become a major leaguer. The plan is to hold a public workout for teams later in August with the hopes of a professional contract (translation: begin in the minors).




Is it a publicity stunt? Perhaps. I don’t think so. His agency is not some fly-by-night, look-at-me shop. CAA represents about 70 major leaguers, including stars such as Buster Posey, Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom. Would it mess with its 365-days-a-year rep for one client?

“This may sound like a publicity stunt, but nothing could be further from the truth,” said Brodie Van Wagenen, co-head of CAA Baseball. “I have seen Tim’s workouts, and people inside and outside the industry — scouts, executives, players and fans — will be impressed by his talent. As an agent, I have a genuine respect for how hard it is to succeed at the game of baseball and a true admiration for those who possess the talent to play it at the major league level. Tim’s tool set is real. His physicality is unique in professional baseball. His work ethic is unprecedented, and his passion for the game is infectious. He knows the challenges that lie ahead of him given his age and experience, but he is determined to achieve his goal of playing in the Major Leagues.”

Tebow is 29. He last played regularly in high school (he has been training at former major leaguer Chad Moeller’s academy). Do I think he will make it? No. But you know what? I don’t think 40th-round draft picks will make it either, yet there is a 40th round in every draft.

The grander point is Tebow wants to play baseball. He remains, despite his failed foray in the NFL, popular.

Major League Baseball is not in a rut. It takes in roughly $10 billion a year. But there are areas that concern those who run it: a) The sport is popular locally, but lacks the national passion of the NFL and NBA; b) The sport does not entice enough of a younger demographic to play and watch the game; c) The American draft lacks impact athletes. Scouts bemoan this fact, complaining that other sports have drained the pool of quick-twitch specimens. It is one reason why Cuban position players have been so coveted in recent years — their athleticism is overt and not available in American high schools and colleges.

Does Tebow solve any of these issues? Of course not. But he is chicken soup. He wouldn’t hurt. He comes with a large following among which he has influence. How could it hurt for that following to see and hear how much Tebow loves baseball?

If he moves a bunch of kids to want to play or attend a game who otherwise wouldn’t, great. If he makes it, great, another terrific/popular athlete in the sport. If he fails, great, a reminder of just how skilled you have to be to make the majors.

I felt this way about Jordan. I felt this way in the spring of 2014, when I spoke to Tracy McGrady about his post-basketball attempts to make the majors. I felt this way when Jameis Winston and Russell Wilson have indulged their baseball passions. Heck, I felt this way in spring 2015 when Will Ferrell was allowed to play 10 positions for 10 teams in one day of Arizona spring training.

This is a moment when lots of parents are questioning whether they want to let their children participate in football because of potential damage to the body and to the brain. Here is a popular ex-quarterback shifting to baseball. It is a moment for the institution of the game to embrace.

My hunch is Tim Tebow never will play major league baseball, never really get close. But who cares? This isn’t like when the Jets traded for him and he created controversy and discomfort at the highest levels. At best, he will be assigned to a minor league team — like Jordan — and have to prove he can play this game.

It would be great for the sport if he made it even that far.

Report: Mets to sign Tim Tebow to minor league contract
9/8/16

The New York Mets will sign former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow to a minor-league contract, reports ESPN.com's Adam Schefter.

Financial terms and length of contract were not disclosed.

Tebow, 29, will now report to the Instructional League or the Arizona Fall League. The Arizona Fall League schedule runs from Oct. 11 to Nov. 19.

Tebow worked out for 28 out the 30 MLB teams during a showcase on Aug. 30, showing impressive power, running the 60-yard dash and doing outfield drills.

Among the teams that were reportedly interested in Tebow include the Atlanta Braves, who said earlier this week that they were engaged in conversations with Tebow's representatives with the possibility of signing him to a deal.

Tebow hasn't played organized baseball since his junior year in high school and spent six seasons on various NFL rosters, although he hadn't appeared in a NFL regular season game since 2012 when he was a member of the New York Jets.

Something with these (professing) "Christian" athletes - they always praise God when things are going good, but when they're not? They say nigh a word!

http://www.star-telegram.com/opinion/opn-columns-blogs/other-voices/article101645802.html
65 years later, television funds college football
9/13/16

The first live coast-to-coast television broadcast of a sports event occurred 65 years ago Sept. 29.

The television industry and college football have grown exponentially, together, ever since.

Is this a good thing? Maybe. Maybe not.

On Sept. 29, 1951, Duke University defeated the University of Pittsburgh 19-14 on the gridiron at Pitt Stadium before a live NBC audience.

Shortly after the Pitt-Duke game, the first live (but local) color football broadcast was a college game — between the University of California and the University of Pennsylvania.

Clearly, 1951 was an important year for television and sports.

This year, on the first weekend of college football, there were 133 college football games broadcast on TV or streamed online, stretched across five days, including a rare Sunday night college football broadcast.

Why has televised college football had such explosive growth? In a word: Money.

Television has provided college football with tremendous exposure, which, in turn, fueled interest that created demand for more college football.

It was demand that television, through the creation of networks such as ESPN, was happy to meet with an increasing number of broadcasts available every night of the week.

The initial concern that this was too much quickly gave way to the belief that 24/7 was not enough.

Satellite broadcasts and cable expanded dramatically and in the process helped to spawn scores of additional networks that were interested in sports generally and college football specifically.

The 1984 court decision, NCAA v. The Board of Regents for the University of Oklahoma, recognized that colleges have the right to sell their TV rights to the highest bidder, and television networks quickly doubled down on college football.

This exposure has changed the game.

TV money has fueled new stadiums and the growth of coaching staffs, coaching salaries and athletic training facilities.


This probably will not change in the future.

The five top conferences have either a dedicated conference network or a lucrative rights deal with one or more networks.

The result is a payment of $25 million or more to each school annually.

This money has fueled concerns about whether student athletes should be paid.

After all, if universities + student athletes = TV money, why not share?

Long-existing college conferences have disappeared and new conferences have been formed in their wake, based less on regional ties and more on television markets.

For example, the Big Ten Conference recently added the University of Maryland and Rutgers University to grab two new TV markets that the Big 10 wanted.

They were rewarded with a new agreement from ESPN, Fox and CBS worth nearly $450 million payable over six years — three times the amount of the previous deal.

The so-called Big 12, which currently only has 10 schools, is now considering going back to 12 or expanding to more.

Key factors in the selection of schools: the TV market in which a prospective school resides and the appeal of the school to the networks that have contractual obligations to the Big 12.

TV also has a major impact on game scheduling.

To justify money paid, networks want maximum exposure to drive strong ratings.

High ratings means more money; more money to TV means more money to schools, conferences and the NCAA.

Weekday prime-time games have become commonplace because there are TV slots to fill.

Sixty-five years ago, the story was television and the novelty of watching a college football game from afar.

Today, watching a college football game on TV is no longer a novelty.

And the story is not television as something new but rather television as the funding source for, and senior business partner of, college football.

This business relationship is not likely to change. How we view TV certainly will.

College sports has become big business, with media money the prime reason.

Fans have not suggested less but rather more of the same.


The challenge will be to keep the business of college football a multiparty relationship, with the college part intact and independent, not the alter-ego of a media enterprise.

That will ensure that the rise and expansion of television and college football as a business relationship was a good thing.

I heard the other day that celebs and pro athletes take these brain-enhancing drugs to help their "abilities" - Tebow hasn't played baseball since high school, and all of a sudden he has "potential"? Seriously?

Rev 18:21  And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
Rev 18:22  And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
Rev 18:23  And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

Tim Tebow Blasts A Home Run In Very First At-Bat During Mets Instructional League Game

Tim Tebow, the former NFL quarterback and Heisman winner who is attempting to launch a professional baseball career at age 29, hit an opposite-field home run on the very first pitch he saw as a member of the Mets organization on Wednesday.

Tim Tebow hit a home run in his first at-bat in Mets Instructional League play

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.” Psalm 37:23 (KJV)

In his very first at-bat, on the very first pitch, in his very first instructional league game, man of God Tim Tebow stepped up to the plate and blasted a home run to the delighted cheers of fans and teammates alike.

The pitcher is no joke. John Kilichowski went to Vanderbilt University … and was an 11th round draft pick of the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2016 MLB draft.

Like everything else on the world stage (ie, politics and elections), this too is nothing but a puppet show to bewitch the masses.

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2669519-dodgers-vs-nationals-game-5-score-and-twitter-reaction-from-2016-mlb-playoffs?utm_source=cnn.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=editorial
Dodgers vs. Nationals: Game 5 Score and Twitter Reaction from 2016 MLB Playoffs

It was truly all hands on deck for the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5.

Clayton Kershaw got the save on one day of rest after starting Game 4, following 2.1 strong innings from Kenley Jansen out of the bullpen. Six different pitchers took the mound for the Dodgers on Thursday as they secured a 4-3 win over the Washington Nationals in a winner-take-all battle.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For anyone that knows the game of baseball, starting pitchers get 4 days rest, and come playoff time when needed, 3 days rest. 1 day rest (even for limited activity) is unheard of.

Revelation 18:23  And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

Ultimately, if Tebow was called to be an evangelist, what is he doing playing around in these areas?

Tim Tebow is still worshipped in Florida, despite national condemnation
10/17/16

GAINESVILLE, Florida — On a warm night before Missouri plays Florida, a student wearing a blue and orange hat backward kneels before Tim Tebow's statue. The student rests his elbow on his knee and touches his forehead with his left fist.

The pose, patented by the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, is called "Tebowing." Tebow frequently struck the pose during games as a way to honor the Lord he said he played for, and people everywhere started striking it for pictures.

The pose helped cast a national spotlight on Tebow that still shines today.

He left Florida in 2009 as one of the most decorated college football players of all time. He won two national championships and became the first sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy, which is awarded to the most outstanding college player nationwide.

Yet it was his famous kneeling pose, and what it stood for, that gave rise to national adoration and hatred.

Many love him, but many loathe him.

One hour before Florida played Missouri, a middle-aged man held his son in his left arm. He hurriedly walked to the west entrance of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

Like hundreds of other Gator fans, he wore a blue and orange No. 15 Tebow jersey, but this model was different.

It was a New York Mets uniform.

Last month, Tebow decided to pursue a dream in another sport — baseball. His NFL career had fallen through. He wanted to give baseball a try, even though he hadn't played since high school. Tebow signed with the New York Mets organization and was placed in the Arizona Fall League at the minor league level.

The media pounced on the story. People everywhere laughed at and ridiculed Tebow.

    I hate that Tim Tebow has stained the beloved game of baseball
    — MD (@mddeange) September 29, 2016

    It would be neither. Don't give this man anymore attention. Tim Tebow should be a punchline, not a news story. https://t.co/jnZee0CT28
    — Mark Sheldon (@markdsheldon) September 28, 2016

In his first professional at-bat, Tebow hit a home run. But in the following weeks, he has looked more like what he is: an ex-quarterback attempting to play baseball.

"He's a washed-up quarterback who has size and nothing else," ESPN baseball insider Keith Law wrote in his column. "His swing is long, and he wields the bat like someone who hasn’t played the sport in more than a decade, which he hasn't."

Tebow's winding journey — from legendary college football player to poor NFL quarterback to aspiring professional baseball player — has further solidified his status as a national punching bag.

For many, the hate toward Tebow began after an emotional speech during his junior year. Florida had just lost to Mississippi 31-30. Tebow stood in front of the media, visibly upset.

"You will never see any player in the entire country play as hard as I will play the rest of the season," he said.


The raw emotion was a rare sight for a 20-year-old standing in front of the media.

Maybe that's why so many people despise Tebow — he's different. He constantly speaks about his commitment to his faith, shown in that famous kneeling pose. His speeches are candid, cheesy and frequently cliched.

"To tell you the truth, I can't really put my finger on (why people hate him), except people who have a strong faith have to stand up for it," said Dean Millward, a longtime Florida fan. "Faith is despised, and I don't know why."

After a four-year NFL career, Tebow became an SEC Network football commentator. And though he appeared on TV, it seemed he had finally escaped the national spotlight — until he wanted to play baseball.

Tebow is a marketing magnet, which can help explain why someone with high school-level experience in baseball was signed to a pro contract. He always grabs headlines, which fuels people’s hatred.

In Florida, Tebow is a living legend.

Just two years after he graduated, a statue depicting a running Tebow was erected in Gainesville. Even during his undergraduate time, mystique surrounded the left-handed quarterback.

"He was a legend already," said Tim Millward, who attended the university during Tebow's reign. "He was always just really kind."

Three trophies stand outside the west end of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. On the far right, 1996 Heisman Trophy winner Dan Wuerffel stands with the ball in his right hand, about to begin his throw. On the left is Steve Spurrier, the 1966 Heisman Trophy winner, whose right hand has almost released the ball.

Then there's Tebow, running with the ball in his left hand.

It's an accurate representation. Tebow was the first NCAA player to score 20 rushing touchdowns and passing touchdowns in the same season.

But in some ways, the depiction is a travesty. Tebow's true impact on people — whether positive or negative — rested in the meaning of his kneeling pose. He showed his faith this way, and professed it in honest post-game comments.

On Saturday, Florida fans remembered that Tebow.

"He is totally positive about life," Dean Millward said. "He always sees the good in everything, and that lifts you up, too.”

Tebow constantly spoke about his public platform as a way of spreading his faith. When he was a junior, he led Florida to its second national championship in three years. He played the game with a Bible verse, John 3:16, scribbled on eye black under his eyes.

The next morning, more than 90 million people searched John 3:16 on Google.

The NCAA banned inscriptions with eye paint one year later, and the media called it the "Tebow Rule."

On Saturday, a winding line formed around the three statues. Everyone was waiting for a picture with Tebow. It started to rain, but the Florida faithful continued to wait patiently.

Every once in a while, someone walked toward the statue and dropped to one knee.

"It's an iconic thing," Tim Millward said of the pose. "Some of its allure has worn off, but it stands for something. It’s pretty cool."

Tebow may have changed his sport, but not his practice.

Two weeks ago, a fan appeared to be having a seizure at an Arizona Fall League game in Scottsdale, Arizona. A large crowd enveloped the man, who lay on the ground and struggled to breathe.

Tebow was signing autographs, until he saw the crowd. He hustled over and touched the man, who finally started to speak and regain his senses.

Tebow stayed kneeling until the paramedics arrived.

Acts 26:20  But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.

This is the kind of nonsense America has gotten to an all-time low now, really...

Oh wait - we thought next week's "elections" is the most important thing in our lifetime now...

Opinion: Why America needed this Cubs win

(CNN)My head hurts. My tongue is dry. My hands twitch, my nose runs, I'm breaking out in hives. I curse irrationally and I have an odd hankering for raw meat.

I'm your typical American citizen in the month of November in the year 2016, trying to hang on as this awful presidential election—historic by all measures of irredeemable awfulness—sucks out every ounce of my contaminated soul.

In other words ...

Thank God for the Chicago Cubs.

Seriously—thank God.

I know—it sounds ridiculous. I get it. But in 44 years of life, never have I (or, I believe, this nation) been more desperate for a narrative like we just saw in the 112th Fall Classic. We are a battered people, and the Cubs—who had gone without a World Series title since (let's say it one last time) nineteen ... oh ... eight—are, beyond all else, optimism.

Early this morning, by defeating the Cleveland Indians in a riveting 10-inning Game 7, Chicago offered the nation a final dose of its season-long blueprint for success. There was grittiness. There was determination. There was an unwillingness to wilt.

And there was amazing, edge-of-your-seat baseball.

Chicago carried a lead late into the game, then lost it (unexpectedly, potentially tragically) in the eighth behind their overworked closer, Aroldis Chapman.

And at that moment, as Cleveland's Rajaii Davis tied the score at 6 with a two-run homer, there was no reason—logically—to think Chicago would win. They were on the road—bullpen was bare, star reliever exposed, crowd going wild. But these Cubs aren't yesterdays' Cubs. They fought back, took a lead in the 10th, held on behind rocky pitching. It wasn't pretty or balletic. But that's OK. Baseball often is neither.

“I believe that entertainment and amusements are the work of the Enemy to keep dying men from knowing they're dying; and to keep enemies of God from remembering that they're enemies.”

“Many people are caught up with the toys of contemporary society. Because of great advancements in our culture, some have cultivated an attitude of “comfortability.” They may be going to hell, but it is going to be a comfortable ride for them.”

“Religion today is not transforming people; rather it is being transformed by the people. It is not raising the moral level of society; it is descending to society’s own level, and congratulating itself that it has scored a victory because society is smilingly accepting its surrender.”
― A.W. Tozer

“As long as you set yourself up as a little god to which you must be loyal there will be those who will delight to offer affront to your idol.”
― A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God

“...the cross of popular evangelicalism is not the cross of the New Testament. It is, rather, a new bright ornament upon the bosom of a self-assured and carnal Christianity whose hands are indeed the hands of Abel, but whose voice is the voice of Cain. The old cross slew men; the new cross entertains them. The old cross condemned; the new cross amuses. The old cross destroyed confidence in the flesh; the new cross encourages it. The old cross brought tears and blood; the new cross brings laughter. The flesh, smiling and confident, preaches and sings about the cross; before the cross it bows and toward the cross it points with carefully staged histrionics--but upon that cross it will not die, and the reproach of that cross it stubbornly refuses to bear.”
― A.W. Tozer, The Divine Conquest

“One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organization do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team.”
