Post have been few this week. I have been at Support Raising School in KC. I have been learning the various aspects of raising support to fund your ministry. It has been eye opening. I had no idea how much time and effort went into raising support. But that hasn't stopped me from thinking of a few quick hits:
If you don't want me to ruin your football watching experience, stop reading. Here goes, It drives me crazy when I hear referees announce a false start penalty. They are redundant in their calls. It always starts, "Prior to the snap, false start on the offense, five yard penalty...." You cannot have a false start AFTER the snap. By its very definition, a false start naturally happens prior to the snap.
Another thing, it drives me crazy when blowhard ESPN analysts and radio talk show hosts refer to the NFL as the NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE. Ron Jaworski from Monday Night Football is the worst offender, followed closely by Mike Greenberg of "Mike and Mike." Everybody does it, Mark Schlereth does it alot too. Why not just the NFL or "you can't expect to survive in this league" instead of constantly saying "THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE." You don' t hear guys calling the NBA the National Basketball Association do you. Pompous blowhards.
Plus, why is it that when I'm on offense, all I need to do is break the plane of the endzone without putting my foot down in the endzone for it to be a touchdown but on a punt, I can jump in the air three yards deep, grab the ball and throw it back out of the endzone and it is not considered a touchback. Didn't I break the plane holding on to the ball?
Anyway, enjoy week four of the NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE.
