A Recalcitrant Wife and Mother Tells All

God is a Steeler Fan


And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away.
– Matthew 5:30


… unless those sinful fingers belong to a Steeler fan; then you should decorate those bad boys and wave ’em in the air like you just don’t care.
– The Bearded Iris





And since it’s Sunday and my favorite team is playing in the AFC Championship game this evening, I think it is only appropriate to share a little story my mom emailed me a few days ago:

Tom Brady, after living a full life, died. When he got to heaven, God was showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a faded Patriots flag in the window.

“This house is yours for eternity, Tom,” said God. “This is very special; not everyone gets a house up here.” Tom felt special, indeed, and walked up to his house.

On his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a 3-story mansion with a BLACK & GOLD sidewalk, a 50-foot tall flagpole with an enormous STEELERS logo flag, and in every window, a TERRIBLE Towel.

Tom looked at God and said “God, I’m not trying to be ungrateful, but I have a question. I was an all-pro QB, I hold many NFL records, and I even won a few Super Bowls.”

God said “So what’s your point, Tom?”

“Well, why does Roethlisberger get a better house than me?”

God chuckled, and said: “Tom, that’s not Roethlisberger’s house, it’s Mine.”
