Now, I can’t really say I follow football much, but my friend AJ sent me a link to an article which made me chuckle.
Via Bleacher Report:
Nothing says “destiny” like a mass email, right guys?
Antrel Rolle thinks so—he says a sign from God guiding him along in his NFL career came Monday morning in the form of an airline deal alert.
“God, I pray that you just give me a level head,” Rolle said, detailing the words of his prayer. “I pray that you just give me a sign to lead me in the right direction, and I’ll follow your lead.”
Rolle said he woke up early the next morning to an email alert on his phone reading, “Orbitz alert: Flights to Chicago, discount fare.”
“I’m like, ‘Wow.’ It just hit [me],” Rolle said. “I never question God’s plan for me, man.”
How much was that contract worth?
Two days later, Rolle signed a three-year, $11.25 million contract with the Bears—solid money for a 32-year-old safety.
Well alrighty then…
