The NFL, human nature, and theology

Like so many others, I was watching football last night when what clearly appeared to be an interception was ruled a touchdown. The handling of the situation was an utter debacle. Referees who were out of position hesitating to make conflicting calls before declaring that it was a touchdown. it decided the outcome of the game and the officials got it wrong.

Among football fans, on blogs, and through social media, there has been outrage that this could happen.

Why?

Because it wasn’t fair. The right thing didn’t happen.

Ohio State – Wisconsin: notes and thoughts

Tension.

The Buckeyes had played such a competitive first half until a muffed punt by junior Jordan Hall and an Ohio State penalty put OSU in poor field position. Suddenly, a half that looked like it was about to casually end with OSU running out the clock was given new meaning as Wisconsin used time outs in the hopes of getting another chance on offense or forcing a Buckeye mistake.
