Whenever I tell people I hate Tim Tebow, I usually get one of three responses (paraphrased, obviously):
“Why? Because he’s a winner and you just hate people who are successful?”
I love Tom Brady, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Michael Phelps, and several other winners. Nice try.
“Why? Because he’s a Christian?”
I’m a Christian. And I wouldn’t care if he was preaching any other religion either. I respect anyone who takes their religion seriously.
“Why? Because he played for Florida?”
Ok, maybe this one’s sort of true. Whatever.
But with the Tim Tebow era set to begin (again) in Denver, I thought I’d give you Teblow haters out there some ammunition. Good luck, and God speed.
1) Tim Tebow should have been flagged for taunting almost every single game in college. What you miss in that video is the announcer saying something similar to “That may be the first mistake he’s ever made.” Really? He does that stupid gator chomp to his opponent every single game. Why is he getting a free pass?
3) Is Tim Tebow the first player ever to show leadership skills? Was Colt Mccoy not a great leader and a winner in college? And he can throw the ball! Wow, no wonder he was on the board way past Tebow in the NFL draft.
4) Is it just me, or does this guy love the attention just a bit too much? It’s fine that he announced that he was coming back, but did he have to do it a second time at the basketball game just to get more cheers? They loved you and want you back. We get it. And then you had to go ahead and make a documentary? Stop it. Please.
5) At least try to be a little original.
6) Watch ESPN this week. No one else gets this much attention. As sports fans, we want to see greatness. We want to see history rewritten. We want to see what we thought was impossible. We don’t want to see a 3rd string QB go 11 for 26. So stop trying to convince us that we should.
With that said, I'm happy that he's getting a chance to play. He'll finally get to prove how terrible he actually is.
And if by some miracle, he starts playing well and starts winning championships...well, then God help us all.
