Thursday Quote Day: Shaun Alexander

For this week’s Thursday Quote Day and in honor of the Seattle Seahawks winning the Super Bowl, here’s a quote from former Seahawks RB and NFL MVP Shaun Alexander:

“I’m not really a nice guy. I’m a man of God. That means I have fire, and I have passion, and the Word says there’s nothing wrong with kicking a little butt now and then.” (Shaun Alexander)

Favorite Super Bowl XLVIII Commercials and Memories

The Super Bowl last night was a great game in my book.  Granted I’m a Seattle Seahawks fan so that made the game special to me.  It was the first time watching a Super Bowl that a team I rooted for won the big game (having seen the Titans lose in Super Bowl XXXIV and the Seahawks lose in Super Bowl XL).

I saw on social media this morning something that summed up the game:  “It was a Seahawks highlight reel with fun commercials”.  I would have to agree with that statement.  People that follow me on twitter got a lot of live-tweeting involving the game.  I tend to do that with sporting events or particular TV shows.  Like a said, it was a great game to me and I’m happy for the people of Seattle and my friends up there.  I lived there the first time the Seahawks went to the Super Bowl and can only imagine how excited the city is today.

There were some pretty good commercials last night in my book too.  Some were down on the commercials but for the most part I liked them.  There were some particular ones that I really liked and wanted to post them on here.

The first is a MetLife commercial starring the Peanuts gang.  Fitting a MetLife commercial during a Super Bowl played at MetLife Stadium:

Another really great commercial was the Cheerios commercial:

The T-Mobile commercial with Tim Tebow was pretty good as well:

There were several trailers for movies that were pretty good but the one that debuted at the Super Bowl was Transformers 4.  It’ll be interesting to see how the movie turns out:

Finally, the Radio Shack commercial was totally awesome (80’s style):

Sunday Devotional: Galatians 6:2

“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2

We are not meant to live life alone.  We were created to live in community.  In living in community, we are to care for one another.  We are to like the verse in Galatians 6:2 says ‘bear one another’s burdens’.  When we are living in community as followers of Jesus, we are able to better reflect Him.  We are showing first hand Christ’s love when we care for one another.  So this week, find someone who’s hurting and come alongside them and care for them.  If you are the one that’s hurting, express that with others so they can come alongside you.
