Silver Linings From The Tim Tebow Signing


If you haven’t heard already, the infamous Tim Tebow is joining the New England Patriots. The result will, unfortunately, be wall to wall Tebow nausea being force fed to all of us by every major media outlet for the next few weeks.

I understand that by writing this, I am contributing to the stupidity. For that, I am sorry. I can guarantee that this will be the only Tebow related article I’ll write for the next few months.

The media coverage of this signing is going to be disgusting over the next week. It’s going to be painful, and we’re all going to have to live through it. But hey, let keep things positive. There are some silver linings here, and I would be remiss not to point them out.

1) People can finally stop making the completely asinine suggestion that the Seahawks should sign him.

2) The Seahawks don’t play the Patriots this year, so we don’t have to hear about him non-stop for a full week this year.

3) Anyone dumb enough to suggest that the Patriots bench Tom Brady for that bozo is just letting us know that we can, and should, ignore them. It is also an invitation to block them on twitter.

4) Bill Belichick limits media access more than any other coach in the NFL. Hopefully ESPN and the other media outlets will find it impossible to inundate us with new ways to cover this “story” and give up. Hopefully. (I’m not counting on it though)

5) I can think of worse things than to have the Tebow circus drag down the Patriots. I don’t hate them as much a couple other teams, but it’s not like I’ll be sad if they get torn apart by internal strife like Timmy has done to his past teams.

6) And finally: People can finally stop making the completely asinine suggestion that the Seahawks should sign him. I already wrote that? too bad. It’s true. They idea was pure stupidity from the beginning, and now we don’t have to deal with it any more.

    EXACTLY! I swear to ****ing Sauron that if I were to hear one more moron saying the Hawks should grab Tebow I was going to lose my cool.

      You get high marks from me for swearing to Sauron, though it would have been higher marks had it been to Morgoth. (nerd humor)

        Bah! One fictional deity is as goo…er, bad as another. I never made it through the Silmarillion BTW so I lack sufficient nerdism to invoke the Dark One’s name I think.
        Beside I was always a Moorcock guy and not a big fan of Tolkien’s books (though Jackson’s films were great!).

    There was still a banner that said “Breaking News…” on NFL.com yesterday which means the story was very fresh and only hours old at the most and there were already 8 different articles, 3 videos, and 2 photo journals about it. And they were new!!! You would have thought Kate Middleton shaved her head or something. Damn, I mean he’s a good guy and all. The world needs good people to look up to, but whoever declared him as the most important individual of all time and decided everything he does must be covered multiple times from every possible angle should be shot! I wish him well but I don’t want to hear about him more than once a month. Keep it down to something reasonable and I might even like him again (I was impressed when he was with the Broncos, until it got out of control). He would earn high marks from me if he’d ask the media to tone it down. As it is, he can claim to be the most humble man in the world, but if he don’t try to quiet down the circus, I’m gonna figure he likes it and is addicted to the fame.

      Which is why I’ve promised to ignore him and not to write about him for a long while. At least this small corner of the web will be free from stories about him.
