Love thine BCS
Initially, this angered me. Like so many of the shenanigans they've pulled in the past, I felt the bitter sting of injustice stirring inside me. However, while watching the Christmas Devotional later tonight, this scripture was mentioned:
Matthew 5:44 - "But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you."
What a great scripture for the Christmas season! It rang true to me on so many levels, but especially with the whole BCS thing. If the BCS is the enemy (and they are) then we should love them. We may not agree with how things are run. We may not be happy with the pairings in the bowls. We may feel that the whole BSU-TCU thing is a filthy cop-out that leaves nothing to be proven and drastically cheapens the work that both teams have put into the season. Nevertheless... *deep breath*... hostility is not the way to enact change. Let us search for other options (namely a playoff) with love in our hearts.
After all, it is the Holiday season. :)
