Fantasy Football and The Church: Keeping It Unreal

September 30, 2013

“Fantasy football looks a lot better than the fantasy of actual football,” writes Nate Jackson in Sports Illustrated.

“I played in the NFL from 2003 through ’08 and was never on anyone’s big board, ” he continues in the September 16, 2013 issue.  A backup tight end and special-teamer for the Broncos, his “name wasn’t spoken by analysts.  It appeared in no headlines.”

Now he plays fantasy football “lying on the sand in Venice Beach.”  The friends he’s in touch with “are childhood and college friends, most of whom didn’t play football past high school.  We dreamed of NFL glory and superstardom.

“For many years this was my only truth.  It pushed me to work hard and believe in destiny.

“I can be Joe Montana.  I can be Jerry Rice.  I can be a superstar!

“And if I’m not — well, never mind that.  I will be!

“But I wasn’t.”

See you back here tomorrow and we’ll pick up right there.  It’s just starting to get good.
