Tebow and the Broncos were THE luckiest SOB's in the history of football. Thankfully it's over.

Brady certainly put on a quarterback clinic for young Mr. Tebow yesterday. I hope the Superbowl matchup is Packers/Patriots. Go Pats!
That said, the Tebow story definitely generated bucket loads of positive press for the league. Just ask Jack Johnson.

Yeah, what happened to the good old days when quarterbacks sexually assaulted college girls in restrooms in backwoods bars in Georgia? When they sent cell phone pictures of their wang to the gals in the front office? When players had to supplement their NFL income by selling cocaine? When players shot themselves in the leg with the gun they brought into a nightclub? And all the media and fans had the common goal of defending them. Waaaay better than this God and Jesus stuff.

Then he appears in a pro-life commercial that airs during the Super Bowl and suddenly everyone discovers that he's incapable of tying his own shoelaces, let alone playing in the NFL. Yeah, right.

I understand your sarcasm and it's not lost on me, but addiction of any sort is just that and baby, this kid is hooked on Jesus. Yeah, it's a little less egregious than rape/drugs/guns/thuggery but if you saw the footage you might agree with me that the kid could use a REAL friend and his constant acapella hymnal singing while staring blankly into space, or better yet, as his teammates walk quietly away is the sign of a troubled mind. He's one step away from being in the stands with a multicolored fro-wig and a John 3:16 sign. I wish him well and I hope he can find some way to live a little bit for himself instead of his imaginary friend in the sky.

p.s. slightly off topic, but if you think a fervent devotion to religion has never hurt anyone...I have a couple million people sprinkled throughout history that might disagree.
