A Poker Chip and a Super Bowl

I know you shouldn't yell, especially on a Sunday, but I did. On a Sunday a few months ago during the Super Bowl.
But, hey, my New York Giants were playing for the championship. And they needed my help, right, my encouragement, and my suggestions of course. How could they hear me if I didn't yell? I know it's, okay, just earth stuff, but it was fun to watch them win; especially since I have a special attachment to the Giants that goes back to our years in the New York area, when I used to speak for some of their pre-game chapels.
What most people don't know is that some of the Giants' dramatic late-season turnaround is traceable, in part, to a chapel they had last November. The speaker was challenging the attendees to be "all in" as husbands and fathers, as spiritual leaders and as followers of Jesus. Then he gave them something I don't ever expect to get from my pastor - a poker chip.
