Christian athletes . . .

Yesterday, Jason Elam of the Denver Broncos was on Fox News pushing his new Christian novel - Monday Night Jihad

Well, I'm not going to root for the Denver Broncos because of Jason Elam, but I will root for him.

For those of you who may not know, here are a few other athletes I do root for because they are not only Christian, but they actively work to spread the gospel:

Aaron Baddely - Golf ----- His website has a faith section.
Zach Johnson - Golf ----- He doesn't have a website, but the Master's champion took the oppurtunity to give the glory of his victory to his Lord - Jesus Christ.

Jeff Gordon - NASCAR ------ He links to a ministry on his website. By the way, if you've never watched a NASCAR race, watch the opening invocation one day. They always mention Jesus.

Danny Wuerffel - Former Saints quarterback ---- What I like about Danny is that he doesn't seem to care that he didn't "make it" as a starter in the NFL. He believes . . . Well, go here and read what he says about finding true fulfillment. You gotta love this guy.

I know there are others, but I gotta get back to work on my manuscript. Do you know any who fit this criteria?

sidenote: spellcheck ain't working and I don't have time to paste and copy from word.

David Tyree (sp.?) of the World Champion New York Giants. Sigh . . .

Shaun Alexander of my Seattle Seahawks along with D.J. Hackett, Matt Hasselbeck, and several other Seahawks.

Kurt Warner of the Arizona Cardinals.

Just to name a few.

I don't know nothin about no sports.

My spellcheck isn't working either.
And I can't spell!

Oh, mustn't forget Jon Kitna (Detroit Lions and former Seahawk).

I'm clueless on sports too, but I think that's awesome. These guys are doing what they are supposed to be doing. Being who God made them to be (athletes) and glorifying Him while they do!!

Not a player, but Tony Dungy is a guy I'll always pull for.
