Today’s game (or tomorrow’s game, if you’re not watching it until the Sabbath is over) provided a plethora of prime examples for speakers to pick from to underscore their points in next Sunday’s talks and lessons. Show your creative elucidation of doctrine prowess in the Super Bowl of Analogies—are you ready for some object lessons?!
The following are memorable moments and images from the Big Game. In the comments, provide your best suggestions for how to use each in a talk or lesson. We’ll also take nominations for most dreaded way each might be brought up by that one guy in your Sunday School class. Game on!
ITEM 1: Mario Manningham makes a touchdown
With 3:39 left in the game, Manningham makes a key catch for the Giants. Notable about the play was how he took care to keep those feet within the boundary lines.
ITEM 2: Andy Lewis slacklines in a Toga with Madonna
In a remarkable display of balance and agility, and lots of hair, Andy Lewis rocks out with Madonna.
ITEM 3: Welker and other Giants drop passes
Missed opportunities for the Giants may have cost even the very elect Tom Brady a Superbowl win added to his record.
ITEM 4: MIA flips the bird during halftime show
In a sad bid for attention (which we will unfortunately grant her), MIA gives a middle finger to the camera during Madonna’s halftime show. WWJJD–What would Janet Jackson do?
BONUS ITEM: Clint Eastwood!
It’s halftime for America. Will we endure to the end or crash and burn in the pride cycle? How would you use this much-talked-about ad in your lesson?
