Robert Griffin III (or as his adoring fans and Baylor alumni know him: RG3) has won the Heisman trophy. I’m not sure if you knew that I was a Baylor alum or not based on my making fun of Aggies and wearing green all the time. And I’m not sure if you heard me as I jumped out of our recliner and screamed with joy as the announcement was made. Call me a proud Baylor alum who is happy for his school and for a great kid.
I have two favorite quotes related to all the Heisman noise. First, Kirk Herbstreit saying that RG3 has brought Baylor football back to relevancy. Ouch. Second, from a friend of mine: “I don’t know how to live in a universe where Baylor football is a winning program and we have a Heisman finalist [and now winner].” Cracking me up.
And that brings me to the non-Heisman related point of this column. Can you live in a universe where the God of the universe who is fully in control of everything becomes what is seemingly a helpless child? Can you live in a universe where a unwed teenage mother bears the Savior of the world? Can you live in a universe where a deity wins the day through a death penalty case? Can you live in a universe where a backwater prophet predicts He will die and rise again, then actually does so?
But that's just me thinking thoughts...
