KTVQ – With Christmas less than two months away some Denver fans are customizing their own Tim Tebow jerseys. “Sports is one thing, and Jesus is another thing,” said Traci Yown, a mom Christmas shopping for her son. Instead of Tebow’s last name on the back of the jersey, it states “Jesus” along with Tebow’s No. 15. “I like to have their names, their last names on the jerseys,” she said. Some are calling the fans’ custom jerseys blasphemous. “I’m a Christian, but I mean I wouldn’t want people going around having Jesus on the back of their jerseys,” Yown said. Tim Tebow said he’s a Christian. While at Florida, he wrote scriptures on his eye black paint and now in Denver some are calling him the “chosen one.” Some have even gone as far as creating Tebow in Christ-like images. “To me it just shows a cultural bias against Christ and Christianity,” Rev. Marcus Buckley of Riverside Baptist Church in Greer. He said in a way, it’s a compliment for what Tebow stands for. “It’s not saying that he is Christ, it’s saying he’s trying to demonstrate and live that out and as Christians that’s what were supposed to do,” Buckley said. And although he said there is a fine line as to wether or not those custom jerseys are blasphemous, he said Christianity is under attack. “You can pretty much believe whatever you want to in today’s society. But as soon as you begin taking a stand for Christ, then that’s not acceptable anymore,” he said. However, Traci Yown said if she’s buying a sports jersey, it will be just that.
Is this real life? Some Broncos fans think Tebow is some sort of Messiah? Hey idiots did you see that stat line Sunday! It was the fucking Sabbath and he went 2/8 for 69 yards. You think Jesus would have only made 2 completions on Any Given Sunday? For sure not. Unless of course he was doing that whole “resting” thing. Maybe thats it. Maybe Tebow sucks so bad because he’s always resting on the 7th day.
But fuck that noise. Thats not the Jesus I know. Jesus would have balled out for like 500 yards and 4 TDs. I mean what did Jesus do when they ran out of wine at that party? Just turned all the water to booze and kept the party going. Jesus ain’t no chump. Dude wouldn’t even let himself stay dead. No chance he woulda let the Chiefs hold him to 69 yards passing.
But whatever. You Denver fans wanna pretend Tebow is Jesus? Lets do this. As much as it pains the Irish Catholic inside me, this Thursday night is officially Good vs Evil. Tim “People Think I’m The Chosen One” Tebow vs. Rex “I’ll Tell People To Shut The Fuck Up When They Are Dickheads” Ryan. If Tebow really is Jesus he’ll exercise some hot shot Son of God type of skills to make sure he takes out the loud mouth Jets. Unfortunately this is the real world and Tebow isn’t actually a Messiah. He’s just a shitty quarterback and the Broncos are gonna get rolled.
PS – Over/Under combined passing yards between Tebow and Sanchez this Thursday – 149.5 yds.
PPS – Word on the street is Jesus is upstairs getting a personalized robe that says Rodgers on the back.
