I admit it. I’m a football fan and a Super Bowl freak. There are so many things wrong with major sports today including a significant increase in human trafficking. Indianapolis even passed a special law that has already been put to good use. Two women were freed from forced prostitution.
I have friends who are vociferous in their “don’t watch the SuperBowl” campaign. I honor their fervor and dedication. I will still go to a party tomorrow to hang out with friends. I will cheer on a team and celebrate the pure meaning of competition even though it’s a very soiled affair. I hope that because of the intense focus on this and other major sporting events, we can, as a society, bring an end to human trafficking.

Now, that having been said, I am going to do a divination on which team will win. Those who read me regularly know that I don’t do a lot of prognostication. Oh, for American Idol I will once we get to the final twelve. I’ve done that for a few seasons now. But normally, this isn’t my schtick.
I pulled three cards for each team. Challenge, Opportunity, Outcome. I’m a Manning fan so I am rooting for the Giants to win since my Saints were knocked out of the playoffs–largely due to being outplayed by the other guys. Darn it!
- The Giants received:
- First Half: (21) Gaia the World
- Second Half: (1) Ace of Fire
- Final Score: (10) Ten of Earth
- The Patriots received:
- First Half: (1) Ace of Water
- Second Half: (10) Ten of Air
- Final Score: (11) Child of Water
Looks like the Giants will have the first half easily but the second half will see the Patriots have a change of leadership/focus that will send them ahead. Given the 10 of Earth is a card of completion in the Gaian Tarot, I am going to have to come down on the side of the Giants as winning this. That Child of Water makes me think the Pats are going to be a little too emotional to carry this off. However, strictly speaking, 11 beats 10 so it may be a 1 point win for the Pats. I hope not.
Whoever wins, I hope that all the major league teams (football, hockey, baseball, basketball et al)and their respective parent organizations will donate to the Not For Sale Campaign. This is not someone else’s problem. It’s not some third world country’s problem. It’s happening in your community even as you read this. Don’t fool yourself into thinking it’s not. Let your voice be heard. You can make a difference simply by echoing what others are saying. You can bring hope to the hopeless. Just Do it.
