No, No, No

I was drinking my morning coffee when the headline flashed across the bottom of the screen. That sound you heard was me choking and sputtering.

My Jets have given up two perfectly good draft picks for Tim Tebow, the worst quarterback in the National Football League.


What the hell are they thinking over there at Gang Green central?

Mark Sanchez is not, as yet, Eli Manning, but he is a talented quarterback with a good arm and he completes more than fifty per cent of his passes, none of which can be said for Tebow. The last thing he needs is a stadium full of Timomaniacs screaming for Tebow every time a pass falls incomplete. The divisions in the Jets locker room last season were well documented. THis is just going to make those problems a thousand times worse.

Nor do I think that Tebow's conspicuous piety will play well in the Big Apple. This is the city that once embraced Broadway Joe. Tebow would fit better in... well, if Branson, Missouri had an NFL team, that would be a perfect fit.

Greetings George!
I hope this finds you well and not entirely nutty. This email is some years in the formulation, but I haven't figured a way to connect with you until now (D'ope!) I'm a fan (yadda yadda) of Ice & Fire, and as it happens, a resident of Santa Fe. I'd love to get together with you to share a beer and talk fooball, but a) we're both insanely busy (with no clear sign of abatement in sight), and b) I'm a Patriots fan, born & bred. That doesn't make me the enemy, I'm actually a fairly decent fellow... heh.
So while I try to avoid news at all costs, I take it where it comes, so yours was the 1st news I'd heard about T-Bow. My first thought, besides "BWahahhhhahHHAhahahaa", was that if he ever grows into his jersey a bit, he has some promise. That is to say, I felt a good vibe, on the Jets' behalf, which is kind of new to me.

While Santa Fe's a pretty small town, I haven't run into you yet, though we came close once, last summer. At the int. of Cerrillos & Zafarano, I yelled across to you, with Paris in yer little red bug, but a massive pick'emup truck pulled betwixt us. Ah, my brushes with fame.
So on the chance you'd like to share a brew, or just tell me to gotahell for supporting a team without parallel, I can be reached @ 470-6462.

All the best, Peace, productivity, proclivity, Ken.
