EDITOR’S NOTE (George Gialtouridis): After the drug use and prostitution glorification in the subcultural music and lyrics by the equally subcultural performers during yesterday’s Super Bowl halftime show, after the white boy’s (Eminem) extended Colin Kaepernick-style kneeling at the end of the show, it was obvious after the game’s conclusion that the true glorification was to the one and only God, the God who inspired the players to give it their best, which they did, and after the game these players praised the Almighty.
But after the game, Kupp had other things on his mind besides personal heroics. “It just comes down to this team, how we’ve prepared, the way we’ve loved on each other, trusted each other,” he said. “I don’t know, I don’t feel deserving of this. God is just so good. I’m just so thankful for the guys I get to be around, for the coaches, for my family.”
Kupp then took reporters on a journey to another place, and another time, where he had a vision from God. “In 2019 we walked off the field that last time after losing to the Patriots; I wasn’t able to be a part of that thing,” he said. “But I don’t know what it was, there was just this vision God revealed to me that we were going to come back, we were going to be part of a Super Bowl, we were going to win it. And somehow I was going to walk off the field as the MVP of the game,” he said. Only one other person knew of that moment until Sunday.
“It was written already and I just got to play free, knowing that I got to play from victory, not for victory. I got to play in a place where I was validated not from anything that happened on the field but because of my worth in God and my Father,” he said.
“It was just walking off the field. It was as clear as day,” he said, according to Sports Spectrum. “I walked off the field, I turned around before walking back through the tunnel and it just hit me. It was as clear as I can see you guys here right now. Pretty incredible.”
He included part of that verse in a post-game Twitter post.
