The promo for ESPN said, “FANS ARE COMING HOME,” and the words were written over a packed Davis Wade Stadium where the Mississippi State Bulldogs football team plays. It was impressive.
Last Saturday, I watched the Texas Longhorns blow out Texas Tech 70-35 in front of 98,349 screaming fans. That’s 98% capacity and there were people shoulder-to-shoulder, back-to-back for as far as you could see.
“THE FANS ARE BACK and people are pumped about things getting back to normal.”
Then, I watched the Cowboys/Eagles game Monday night at AT&T Stadium and it was packed. The announced attendance was 93,267 and the byline said, “The fans are back!” You could see the same thing Saturday at nearly every college game and Sunday at every NFL game, as well.
THE FANS ARE BACK and people are pumped about things getting back to normal.
It begs the question: “IF THE STADIUMS ARE PACKED, HOW COME CHURCHES AREN’T?”
I don’t have a good answer for that?
See you Sunday!
