Tebow Comes To Sodom

Welcome to New York, Time Tebow!

Some believe this is a bad, bad mix:

To put it in crude, political terms, Tim Tebow is a ‘red state’ phenomenon who will suddenly be in a ‘blue state’ spotlight . . . If you thought that Tebow was a nationally polarizing figure already, wait until he becomes the symbol of small town versus big city, real America versus Gomorrah, and so forth.”

Others, however, disagree:

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, who in Rome last month told reporters, “New York seems to have an innate interest and respect for religion and I’m going to bring that up because I don’t like that caricature that New York is some neo-Sodom and Gomorrah".

Er...sorry about that post title, Cardinal....

Barstool Sports goes a bit overboard...or do they?

I’m the only one on this bandwagon, and I suggest you all jump on. I may be driving it a little bit buzzed, but its time for this city to embrace the Messiah. Because if you’re not convinced Tebow is the Second Coming by now, I don’t know what else to tell you...

An entire city and half the world who doubts him. Just like my man JC, its his mission and his quest to convert the non-believers and help them see The Light. Yes, Tebow would rather be a starting QB, but God works in mysterious ways, no? The last time God sent his son down to earth to become Man, he fucking killed him by having people nail him to a cross. The second time around 2,000 years later God decided he was gonna lighten up a little bit and just make his Son a backup quarterback. Sure, its not the most glamorous position. Running the Wildcat and QB sneaking half a dozen times a game is not the glitz and glamor you’d expect from the Son of God. But its all part of God’s plan...

And just maybe it is. Mark 2:13-17:

...And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him. 16 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners? 17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

This city is rife with them.  And so, come to think of it, are the New York Jets.  How many of the Deadly Sins are epitomized by Rex Ryan (gluttony), Bart Scott (pride), Woody Johnson (greed), Warren Cromartie (excessive spreading of his bad seed), Santonio Holmes (wrath), Mark Sanchez (sloth)...the list goes on on on...

So maybe Tim Tebow is in the right place, at the right time.  No city needs the presence of Good more than Satan's Backyard.  And if there is any professional sports team that needs to be sprinkled with holy water and resurrected from a downfall, it is the New York Jets.

Good luck, Tim.  And again, welcome to the Big Apple.  Enjoy your stay....
