Cheering for the Other Side redux

I received an e-mail from David Thomas who is the sports writer for the Star-Telegram.  This is the article he wrote after he had seen the game. 

This is a wonderful example of Christians showing the love of Christ.

Unique fan support lifts spirits for players at Gainesville State School | Sports | Star-Telegram.com
The Gainesville State School Tornadoes’ spirit line stretched halfway across the end zone. The players —- all 14 of them —: ripped through the paper sign that read "GSS Go Tornadoes" as the line turned toward the playing field, then extended past the 30-yard line.

The Tornadoes sprinted through the tunnel of 300 cheering fans. The players’ black and white uniforms contrasted with the fans’ red sweatshirts and T-shirts that read "FAITH LIONS."

Gainesville State coach Mark Williams jogged outside of the spirit line. He raised his hands head-high and clapped. "Thank you, thank you," he said to anyone who could hear him.

Then Faith’s fans began making their way to the stands. Half went to the home side, half to the visitors’ side.
