    Someone in the comments called it the "I caught a fish this big Jesus". :lol: Doesn't have the same ring.

    What a disappointment! That is not a real Touchdown Jesus. His arms aren't high enough to be a goalpost. I was expecting a remake of the original with a nun in full garb (with a scarlet & gray sash) kicking a football up across his head. What were they thinking when they created this??? :eek:

    Touchdown Jesus will no longer be a destination statue for gawkers like me. Now all I have left are the giant signs in the farmer's field along 71-S asking "If You Die Tomorrow, Where Will You Spend Eternity?"

    Honestly, must we create our own comic religious diversions for entertainment along the highways of this great state?

    Count me in as just another disgruntled Buckeye.

    Eh? That pretender to the throne in Indiana has nothing to do with this. That's not exactly the Catholic Church there.

    The pastor died a while back and membership at that church has supposedly dropped a lot. I can't see that rather sad statue doing much for the cause.

    No, not at all the same. Touchdown Jesus emerging from the earth was priceless. This is what?? Well, maybe $5 Footlong Jesus, maybe I Caught a Fish This Big Jesus.

    RIP, true Touchdown Jesus. :wuzrobbed I hadn't realized that the original was made of styrofoam and fiberglass. :eek: No wonder he "burst into flames" when struck by lightning two years ago.
