The Ballad of Kurtis and Brenda
Well I did some investigating on Snopes.com. This is a web site that evaluates these "urban legends" that circulate in cyberspace as to whether they are true or not. It seems that this ballad of Kurtis and Brenda is true as far as the big picture goes ... but false in many of the details of the story (if you want to get to the truth .... just go to http://www.snopes.com/glurge/warner.asp). But still ... the true story of their romance is indeed an inspiring one. After meeting in 1992, they married in 1997. Kurt adopted Brenda's two children. In addition, God blessed them with five more children.
As many of you know, today Kurt and Brenda Warner live in Arizona, where he is currently employed as the quarterback of the National Football League Arizona Cardinals (a far cry from stocking shelves in a grocery store which he was in fact doing prior to playing for the St. Louis Rams). His Cardinals are now headed to play my Steelers in this Sunday's Super Bowl. Kurt's relationship with Brenda and his family demonstrates that he is no ordinary jock! (And he is indeed a super star athlete as he has been named the NFL's Most Valuable Player twice and the Super Bowl Most Valuable Player in the only Super Bowl in which he has played!)
But the most important fact about this star quarterback is that he is a devoted follower of Jesus Christ! So if somehow the Steelers don't walk away from this year's SB as winners, I will be disappointed. But that disappointment will be tempered by my happiness for my brother in Christ!
