    Default Tweet of the day

    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    What really makes that tweet are all the gif/meme responses there are to it.

    There are some very funny responses to that tweet, although I guess I shouldn't be laughing so hard given the tragedy. I was interested enough in the story to read one of the actual news reports. The decedent avoided the use of pronouns and the report, including some of the quoted observations about the victim, use the plural pronoun, which was initially confusing but ultimately instructive.

    Their partner didn't respect their wish, referring to them and "he" in his quote in the news report. SAD!

    Also, they're from the UK. This sad ending is no doubt due in large part to the U.S. military presence in the British Isles since at least WWI.
    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."
