Over the last couple months, I think I’ve wrote about Tim Tebow pretty much every one of them. My initial reaction was to not like the guy, not so much because of his religious stance but because he was a bad quarterback and getting undeserved chances.
Shortly thereafter, I became wrapped up in Tebowmania. All the comebacks. The winning streak. It was too good to be true. Mostly because it wasn’t true.
When the Patriots and Broncos played each other, it was the first real test of the Tim Tebow Miracle Show. And even better, it was Tebow vs. Tom Brady, formerly known for comebacks and winning and stuff. But the two couldn’t be different. One likes God, the other basically is. One has lots of sex, the other is Tim Tebow. One is good at being a quarterback, the other isn’t. And the game played out pretty much how people expected: the Broncos showed the were a complete fluke, Tebow isn’t very good at throwing footballs, and Tom Brady is super good at throwing footballs.
Tebowmania is dead. There was a collective, “Oh right, so that’s over” moment. Now maybe we can finally move on with our lives and Tim Tebow can begin his transition into ex-NFL player-turned-expensive public speaker.
