If Jesus returned during the Super Bowl
I hear howling. It's drifting in through my closed window from the other apartment buildings nearby. The game is still on.
Now, what I want to know is, if Jesus' return occurred during a particularly important play in the fourth quarter, what would the fans do? Would there be a huge collective "Awwwww" heard throughout the land? What would the players do, the ones who kneel in prayer after a touchdown? Christ splits open the sky just as a crucial play begins that could potentially decide the outcome of the game, and the players look skyward and shout "Wait! Wait! Just let us finish this play, okay?"
