Video: On the Sacredness of the Superbowl

From Odyssey Network’s Faith on the Record series: “We now know that the Denver Broncos will meet the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII. According to a recent poll by the Public Religion Research Institute, nearly half of Americans polled see some supernatural forces affecting the outcome of sports events. So does God pick a winner?? Who knows, says Rabbi Brad Hirschfield, but there are elements of the sacred in and around the Super Bowl.”
