Have you ever fallen behind in your daily reading plan and had to end up reading the sub titles and guess what the premise is? Well prepare your hearts and minds for an Elijah-like whirlwind of information regarding the tenacious Thunder of Manhattan Christian College.
 
Lukewarm Start

The beginning of the 2015/2016 season had both its Sinai Highs and Dead Sea Lows. After failing to win the conference the year before, the Thunder got revenge on the defending champion Faith Baptist Bible and did so convincingly. This came a week after the Thunder traveled to Moberly where they have had great success against another conference foe: Tre-C-B(Central Christian College of the Bible). I did not witness the game but only received information passed down. We shot as well as Peter’s promise keeping skills in the first half and failed to make a comeback in the second half. Just as Samuel’s ghost haunted Saul, so did this loss on the Thunder’s season.

Thunder begin their ministry

By ministry, I mean domination. After falling to 5-6, the Thunder had one New Year’s resolution: be really freaking good at the game at basketball. Unlike Solomon, who probably made it a goal every year to not marry any more women, the Thunder were successful with their resolution. The thunder went 15-3 in the regular season games, including a season sweep of our un-accredited rival Ozark and a win against the top ranked team in all of NCCAA Division 2.

MCC reinstates themselves as kings of the MCCC

Remember when I said the CCCB loss haunted the Thunder? Despite splitting the season series with our in-state rival Barclay, our loss to CCCB ended up placing us in 2nd place as Barclay only dropped one game in the conference. In the conference tournament in our other home court(Ozark), both the Bears and Thunder marched their way into the championship game. Some people predicted a fantastic close game between the two rivals. Jesus said there would be false prophets and he was correct, we won by 25 and cut down the nets.

The Road to Ankeny

With the Thunder picking up momentum towards the end of the season and playing some really freaking good basketball, they had one more roadblock before Nationals. Win the region. 3rd times the charm is not in the Bible and it did not work for Baptist Bible College in the regional semifinal. We faced Tre-C-B for the fourth time this season and second time in a week. Despite having the home crowd and some valiant comebacks, the Thunder defeated CCCB and won the Central region for back-to-back seasons for the first time in school history. Today the teams were announced for the tourney and the Thunder are the #2 seed. 10 teams, 0 scholarships, 1 true champion. #rollthunder

Remember when Goliath looked across the field and  asked what the h-e-double-hockey-sticks is that kid doing here? Well our baptists friends from Waco will be asking the same question as one of the best teams from the National Christian College Athletic Association Division 2  faces off with a ranked National College Athletic Association opponent.

One of MCC's longtime rivals Hillsdale Freewill Baptist(now known as Randal University) will be facing Scott Drew's Baptist Bears this Saturday the 9th. What excites me the most about this matchup is that the transitive property can be applied here. Say BU>RU and MCC>RU and KSU>BU. At first logic would say KSU>BU>MCC>RU. BUT THE SPIRIT DEFIES LOGIC, KSU/MCC SHOULD BE PLAYED

For years I have prayed that Kansas State and MCC would duel. I would love it if the 1st half was played in the fOOD and the 2nd half was played in THE HAC. YOU GUYS MCC NOW HAS A GYM AND DOES NOT HAVE TO PAY A FEE TO THE MANHATTAN PARKS AND REC FOR CITY AUDITORIUM THAT HAD SEATS MISSING. The HAC(Howie's Activity Center) is located right in the middle of campus! MCC got destroyed by Washburn earlier but WHO CARES GO CHECKS MADE OUT TO OUR ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT. So another beatdown and another check for the Lord would not hurt anyone. MCC did beat McPherson College(scholarshiped team) for the first time in program history so that deserves an amen.

anyways I was just dreaming.  Hope everyone is having a great Advent season

Wow, I would probably get John if I took the buzzfeed test as to which Gospel writer I would be because of how long I wait to post. Hope this does not change your opinion of my writing and make you question whether I changed any main points of my story to fit my narrative.

MCC plays schools of all denominations, Catholic, Baptist, Quaker, Methodist, Lutheran, Secular, and especially the "non-denomination" colleges. I wish more denomination smack was shared during games

Lutheran school to Catholic School: We got 95 points and also 95 problems but losing ain't one.

Catholics to Protestants: We are making it rain 3s which is technically baptism so neener neener

Independent Church of Christ to Disciples of Christ: We just opened the flood gates in the second half which technically baptism by immersion so now we can accept you as members. 



Personally there is only one denomination/school I truly enjoy seeing MCC beat. For years they were un-accredited and average at basketball. Tonight they will send their ambassadors to the "liberal school" in Manhattan. Despite finally getting accredited from the higher learning council they will remain the Essau to our Jacob. For my 200th post, GO THUNDER'SADERS, BEAT OZARK.

Brothers and Sisters of goEMAW

It has been far to long since I have written you. I hope you have kept faith in our Lord and Savior oscar and have held stead fast in believing in the return of the fire and ice defense. Unfortunately, I have not been around 1415 Anderson in quite sometime. The rootin tootin thunder do not play in City Auditorium anymore(187 strong), the second winningest coach in Kansas appointed his disciple to run the program and there appears to be an instate challenger to Ozark(remember those nimrods?) for a rival. One thing has remained the same and that is how much heart the team plays with. This season has brought about much adversity, and instead of blaming fatigue from their in season tournament in Ankeny, IA, this team fought through it. They have seriously been in my T's/P's as they grieved the loss of a former player/assistant coach. #LLCW. MCC co-won the MCCC regular season title and  outright tournament title, MCC and MCCC go together like a sermon at the end of a fiscal year on tithing.  Last night in the NCCAA Division 2 Non Scholarship Tournament they fought against the Royals of Johnson University, it was an instant classic that will be on U-stream+ for years to come. Unfortunately this Thunder lost in 2Ot but this team has a lot to take pride (not the sin) in. They have a chance to end their season on a win and then look forward to the season ahead


Grace and Peace
