What I Know About Sports – Tim Tebow Edition

Tim Tebow is terrible & awful. Tim Tebow is amazing & a blessing. This my understanding of professional football based on Twitter, Facebook, and sporadic headlines I might catch of a sport I don’t actually follow. I know we have a Broncos fan in Philly who appreciates that the team didn’t hire dog killer, and one of my close friends from college is a lifelong Bronco fan.

The friend from Colorado recently posted a link to a story that puts some of the crazy headlines about his shortcomings in perspective.

Do you know what else Tim Tebow has never done?

Tim Tebow has not climbed all Seven Summits. He’s never built an invisible jet or hosted the Country Music Awards. If he has solved the mystery of Loch Ness, or washed dishes at The French Laundry, it’s never been written about. Tim Tebow’s portrait does not hang in the Louvre. Sandra Bullock has never made a Tim Tebow movie. Tim Tebow has never made a Sandra Bullock movie.

Sure, Tim Tebow has been on the cover of Sports Illustrated, but has he been on the cover of Dwell or Bon Appetit? That’s right: no. Loser! …

That’s embarrassing. Why do people care about him?

Yes, Tim Tebow beat the Miami Dolphins, the Oakland Raiders, the Kansas City Chiefs, the New York Jets and the Chargers of San Diego. But Tim Tebow has not beaten the Detroit Lions. Or the Detroit Pistons. Or the Detroit Red Wings. Or Manny Pacquiao. Or Dara Torres. Or Real Madrid. Or Gary Kasparov.

It is even better from the opening until the end, so go read the whole thing.

As for me, I’ll go back to ignoring the NFL and ignoring the fact that my favorite college team completely bit the dust mid-season – again.

  1. I theoretically do care about the feetball. Every year I have high hopes for the deadskins – this will be the year for one reason or another. And every year they remind me that they still haven’t realized there’s 4 quarters in the game, nor 16 games in a season. It’s embarrassing
