Ole Miss Football Road Trip>> Welcome to Ole Miss

I have never experienced anything like it.  When the UA team arrived at the Ole Miss Stadium, they had a horde of well-wishers to greet them.  The crowd gave the team a hero's welcome, and we got to trail along behind the team.
I imagine that this is remotely similar to the Palm Sunday welcome that Jesus received in Jerusalem.

It's a bit sad to me.  A football team gets celebrated as modern heroes.  A GAME becomes a cause for wild celebration.  A person who can throw or run a ball in a GAME outranks so many other endeavors.  Go figure.
