Holy tweet. This one will be hard to top. Hapless Buffalo Bills receiver Steve Johnson actually went on Twitter to berate God for letting him drop the ball.
Really? Yep, this is serious as a heart attack--or maybe a lightning strike. Take your pick.
Get a load of this histrionic tweet from Johnson to the Almighty:
I PRAISE YOU 24/7!!!!!! AND THIS HOW YOU DO ME!!!!! YOU EXPECT ME TO LEARN FROM THIS??? HOW???!!! ILL NEVER FORGET THIS!! EVER!!! THX THO...
I don't know if that celestial rant was such a wise move on Johnson's part. Is God really that concerned about the outcome of any particular football game? Somehow, what with war, famine, disease, death, frequent disasters, and ongoing creation, I think God has probably missed a few quarters. Furthermore, I doubt he TIVos any games.
Another thing: Do you think God reads his tweets? Even if he does, how seriously can you take a fool who's chewing out the Big Guy on Twitter? After all, Butterfingers Johnson's got life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and a big paycheck for playing a cool game. All these goodies come courtesy of the Lord--what more does he need? Well, perhaps a bit of double-sided tape for his game gloves. But I don't see how anyone could think that's on God.
As for praising God 24/7, that's quite a claim on Johnson's part. How much praying does he do while he's asleep? You know, it's those little fibs that catch up with all of us eventually. Remember what many of our moms told us: "God will get you for that." Or words to that effect. Maybe God "did" him to teach him a lesson; maybe Steve Johnson should "expect to learn" that life is not all about him. At least, not all the time.
So please, Johnson. If you'll "never forget this!! ever!!!", let the eternally-retained memory be the fact that YOU dropped the ball. And in the name of Facebook, get over yourself.
