Touchdown Jesus Burned Down

B's commissioning was great, and I was going to make a post about it today...but I feel that Touchdown Jesus needs a little tribute today.

We had some serious storms roll through here last night. And, about an hour from here, there is a giant Jesus statue locally known (and wikipedia-known) as "Touchdown Jesus." 6 stories high, you can see it from the highway.



Last night, it's right hand was struck by lightning and it burned to the ground :(



It even got it's own youtube video.



Things just won't be the same without Touchdown Jesus :(
