A Pastor Blew Through His Sunday Service In Less Than A Minute To Make The 49ers-Panthers Kickoff

The battle for America’s Sundays (and souls, probably) tilted a little more in favor of football this weekend when Pastor Tim Christensen sped through his worship service at Gold Hill Lutheran Church in Butte, Montana. The (ahem) devout 49ers fan blew through his sermon in less than a minute, all in an effort to catch the kickoff for Sunday’s divisional round bout between his team and the Carolina Panthers.

Christensen even capped the abbreviated service off with a double dose of Kaepernicking and, perhaps inspired by some divine vision, a mocking of Cam Newton’s Superman celebration mere hours before Kaepernick himself would pull the same move.
