On our way back from Max’s school, we pass a church with a traditional sign exhorting the masses to come and pray. I’ve blogged the sign before, during the America’s Cup. The sign gets changed regularly and often says something cool or funny. One of my favourites was: “The best things in life aren’t things”.
This week, the sign has had a sporting reference. Today was Superbowl Sunday, the American Football final (a game that seems to be most similar to rugby, but with more commercial breaks). The San Francisco 49ers played in last week’s semi-final, but, much to the disgust of the locals, the 49ers lost to their sworn enemy, the Seattle Seahawks. So today’s final was between the Seahawks and the Denver Broncos. The local radio support this week has been torn between supporting the remaining West Coast team, the Seahawks, and supporting anyone that’s playing against the Seahawks, on principle.
The church signer has clearly shown where his/her allegiance lies.
