Apparently the Mets liked what they saw: “Tim Tebow’s foray into professional baseball is going to get a lot more challenging Sunday when the erstwhile quarterback and New York Mets outfield prospect reports to the Arizona Fall League, a circuit reserved for elite prospects on the doorstep of the major leagues.” If he does well there, Tebow may be playing for the Mets as a 30 year old rookie next year. …Dude’s had an interesting career, huh?
This will undoubtedly infuriate a lot of people who typically call football ‘American football’ because to call soccer ‘soccer’ is apparently a travesty. Personally, I never could quite figure out just why he engenders such a harsh reaction from various elements of the Left. I mean, I know that the “committed Christian” thing was and is provocative to that sort, but it still seemed a bit over-the-top. Maybe it was the way that he got a team in the cellar to the playoffs? – Some people do so hate to see other people do well.
Eh. The guy may not even play all that much this year anyway.
Allahpundit says something interesting here about Tim Tebow:
I like him because I like underdogs and because he plays with heart even though he’s far from being a top-tier QB — far enough, I think, that he probably won’t be a starter for long.
Now, I don’t follow football all that thoroughly, and even when I was more interested in it I was never as into it as my little sister was and is (to be fair, she knows the game). But… taking a 1-4 team and leading them to a playoff slot may or may not make somebody top-tier, but surely it allows for a certain amount of job security, yes?
I am cheerfully certain that I will now have it explained to me why the answer is actually quite often ‘no.’ Fair enough.
You know, I don’t even watch football and I’ve gotten into the habit of checking out what the final score was for the Broncos game. Because every time Tim Tebow gets the win and thanks Jesus and the team for it, somebody goes entertainingly nuts about the former.
(Via The Right Scoop and The Radio Equalizer) I figure that eventually Tim Tebow will lose another game, although thanks to him the Broncos are in a heck of a better position for a playoff slot, which is I believe is the crazy hope that they had when they made him starting QB. And when that day comes, I will be largely grateful that I am not, say, Bill Press in the video above: largely because the video above causes me to suspect that Press may be incapable of sustaining a useful erection sans a constant obsession of just how badly he hates unabashed Christians.
