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.

I really don't follow football at all anymore, though in as much as I have a team, it's the Jets. So...I thought from all the press he gets that Tebow was the best thing since sliced bread, although I despised - and will continue to despise, no matter whether he's any good or not - his "Praise the Lord" schtick. But...not so much, I gather. In which case, what the frell was the point of signing him? And as far as his holier-than-though BS goes, I'm an atheist-agnostic former Jew. I don't want God or Jesus or any other religious myth mixed in with my sports. I find it actively offensive, in fact. He's welcome to believe whatever he wants, but I resent having it shoved in my face as if it's The Only Way. I hope he's pilloried by the locals and decides to keep it to himself. Or leave. I'm fine if he leaves.

Sorry. A la my icon, I've got my rantypants on today.
