    I thought assignments during SB Sunday was off limits in non-Wymount family wards. WTF is wrong with people?!?

    I remember once going to a fireside with Bruce Hurst as the speaker. It was at the tabernacle in St. George, and it was right during the second half of the SB. I distinctly remember sitting there thinking the entire time "I should be enjoying this, but I"m not because I'm missing out on the freaking superbowl. Coulnd't they have done this next week?"

    Bishop Pusey got up at the end of sacrament meeting and said 'I cannot see how anyone thinks watching the superbowl is keeping the Sabbath day holy', and then sat down. The kickoff was a couple of hours away. I wonder how many in the congregation were duly chastened (I think I may have been one of them ).

    I think a good rule to live by is to never listen to a BYU student ward bishop.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    I had a bishop in my home ward growing up say essentially the same thing. You could almost feel the congregation shrugging that that suggestion off.

    I know a BYU student ward bishop that cancelled a meeting last year because it would conflict with the Super Bowl. He is keeping the schedule clear this year. Pretty cool guy.

    I've heard mixed reviews about the guy, but that is cool. Actually, the only negative notes have related to occasional insufficiencies of smoked delicacies.

    Ha! Last year our stake scheduled a planning meeting for the self reliance group leaders. My bishop was asked to be on the leadership for it and he was happy to do it.

    The stake them set the planning meeting for super bowl Sunday night. My bishop told the stake president he already had a commitment that night. The sp laughed thinking he was joking until my bishop made it clear he wouldn’t be there since he was going to watch the super bowl. They didn’t reschedule and my bishop didn’t go.

    Who originally scheduled the meeting? Just checking on the level of coolness to assign to him.

    It was a regularly scheduled ward prayer on Sunday evening. He noticed that the game was going long and there would be a conflict so he blasted a text to the entire ward telling them that ward prayer was cancelled.

    I should totally look him up and send him a pic of me watching the superbowl, with the caption, 'who's the Pusey now, huh?'

    That would be a totally sick burn.

    Just a short get-together in the dorm activity room for 15-20 minutes to end the sabbath on a positive note. Recognize birthdays, mission calls, intro new people, etc. followed by a short hymn, thought, prayer. Then they sit around and socialize. Casual dress. We get great attendance.

    I distinctly recall the only purpose those prayers served when I was school. The opportunity to see some of the girls in their pajamas. Considering it was the late 80s and baggy sweaters and multiple layers was the prevailing style, that was like seeing an ankle or shoulder in Victorian times

    I award 7 out of 11 points. It should have been cancelled well in advance, but the act of cancelling keeps him above the 5.5 mid point threshold.

    Chiefs send Alex Smith to the Redskins.

    Smith extends his contact right away. 4 years $94M of which $71M is guaranteed.

    And at that point they determined that it would've been embarrassing to score and then not have another cool celebration prepared.

    They were just stuck.
    Not sure how I missed this earlier, but you may be on to something. They should have consulted with T.O. to get a variety of celebrations in their repertoire.

    I agree with this. The Pats are going to win big.

    Last week was an aberration — we are going to see the real Nick Foles this week and he isn’t very good.

    Hope I’m wrong.
