There is a lot on the line for this year’s Rose Bowl. Not only is Blue pride on the line, but my pastoral pride. A couple of weeks ago, Pastor Graydon Jessup from Eastside Christian Church in California wagered a “friendly pastoral” bet.
If USC wins the Rose Bowl, then this coming Sunday I will have to preach with USC paraphernalia, but if UM wins, then he has to wear blue and maize while he preaches.
Also, the loser will have to take a picture and send it over to the respective church. Then the winner can gloat while they give the announcements in church.
