A little wit.
Jesus is my….co-pilot? (from SurferSam.com)
Billy Graham was returning to Charlotte after a speaking engagement and when his plane arrived there was a limousine there to transport him to his home.
As he prepared to get into the limo, he stopped and spoke to the driver.
“You know” he said, “I am 87 years old and I have never driven a limousine. Would you mind if I drove it for a while?”
Billy gets into the driver’s seat and they head off down the highway.
A short distance away sat a rookie State Trooper operating his first speed trap.
The long black limo went by him doing 70 in a 55 mph zone.
The trooper pulled out and easily caught the limo and he got out of his patrol car to begin the procedure.
The young trooper walked up to the driver’s door and when the glass was rolled down, he was surprised to see who was driving. He immediately excused himself and went back to his car and called his supervisor.
He told the supervisor, “I know we are supposed to enforce the law…But I also know that important people are given certain courtesies. I need to know what I should do because I have stopped a very important person.”
The supervisor asked, “Is it the Governor?”
The young trooper said, “No, he’s more important than that.”
The supervisor said, “Oh, so it’s the President.”
The young trooper said, “No, he’s even more important than that.”
The supervisor finally asked, “Well then, who is it?”
The young trooper said, “I think it’s Jesus, because he’s got Billy Graham for a chauffeur!”

A little whatever.
On February 22, 1980, the “Miracle on Ice” took place in Lake Placid, NY at the Winter Olympic Games. The United States Olympic men’s hockey team, made up mostly of college students who had never played professionally, scored an upset victory over the heavily favored Soviet team, 4-3. The United States team moved on to the finals, where they defeated Finland to win the Gold Medal while the Soviets were forced to settle for the Bronze. The famed event was dramatized twice, first for television in 1981’s Miracle on Ice, and then later in 2004’s Miracle.
