God and Jesus: This Tim Tebow Kid is a Very Nice Boy, But We Don’t Know Him, and Don’t Blame Us For The Loss

English: Tim Tebow, a player on the Denver Bro...

God and Her son Jesus held a joint press conference today to answer the charges that they had been conspiring to help Tim Tebow win football games this season. Said God, “yeah sure – I was helping this kid all along – like I have nothing better to do with my Sundays but watch the Denver Broncos.” Jesus added, “first of all mom and I had New England minus 13 ½, so we actually wanted to see Tebow get his ass handed to himself out there. Mind you, he’s a good kid, but be that as it may, I swear on Her that neither of us had anything to do with him winning or losing – or hurting his elbow – straight up. And this business about kneeling and looking up to the sky – puh-leeze okay? I mean, give us a break…what does this guy think is up there? We do not live up there. And kneeling – for that? It’s so passé. Take my word for it – we invented kneeling for other reasons, we’ll just let it go at that, okay? Look, this kid has a 5 year deal worth $11,250,000, what’s he need us for? Mom and I are tryin’ to work some loaves and fishes miracles for people who are starving and who don’t even have a manger to piss in, so why on earth would we care about this millionaire – or any millionaire?” God leaned into the microphone – “and – why on earth would me or J help Denver, Colorado anyway? Have you noticed that Jesus and I are both black? You ever see any black people in that stadium except the people on the field? Or brown? Or Latino – right? I don’t even think there’re any Jewish people in that town. Well…maybe there’re a couple of high priced personal injury lawyers for those freaks who ski into trees. But I mean, get real – I created Colorado for bison! Denver was just an afterthought, a place the kid and I could get away for some snow boarding. And, since we’re on the subject, we had nothing to do with that song Rocky Mountain High either.” She moved over as Jesus leaned into the mike, “and you know” he said, “I never hear these guys thank us after a loss…after coming through a game unhurt…” He looked around at the assembled reporters…“I mean, if, as a lot of them say, they’re not praying to win – just to do their best, than why aren’t they just as happy that they did their job and are still in one piece? And if they aren’t praying to win but just praying to do their best, and if the other guy is praying to do his best, then it’s got nothing to do with us anyway – but everything to do with who’s best – right?” So please leave me and mom outta this okay? And while we are rooting for The Giants to win tomorrow, we will not be affecting the outcome – although we have taken them plus 8.”

  1. Your satire hits the spot. I don’t know who this Tim Tebow kid is but reading this
    I don’t need to. And that’s the excellence of it.

  4. Now if someone could get HER to pay attention to my poor NY Mets, that would be nice…
    Also, while I’m not a fan, Tebow should get credit to standing for his beliefs and (to my knowledge) not being a dick about it…

    • ok, i’ll give you that…it’s just all this thanking God after a play that gets a little annoying, as if She’s playing favorites….or even cares…or even is. anyway, yeah – i’m a Mets fan too…they might be beyond divine help EG. thanks for the comment. continue…

  5. 😆 After I regained my composure, I asked her son to help me remember where I put the info on how to show you what I was doing. I heard a sigh from afar and, I think, the word “idiot.”

  7. What in hades is a Tebow?
    Actually had to google this over-paid loon. Have a sneaking suspicion that if She really does speak to people it’s not going to be to the likes of some grandstanding millionaire athlete or George W. Pretty sure She’d be whispering into Hitchen’s ear. Just an errant thought.

    You know at least this guy is bringing prayer back to it’s rightful place: the masses including all creeds on national television (my god’s better than your god, my god’s better than yours….) and hopefully next, our schools.
    After all that’s what I want my child to learn: hard work, initiative and teamwork are futile. Faith is only for the unseen and unproven. Not yourself!

    Your piece bust me up. As always you make a fine point with humor and verve. Startled the cat with a laugh after reading ‘Take my word for it – we invented kneeling for other reasons, we’ll just let it go at that, okay?’

    Tony you never disappoint.
    -singing- Isis loves you, this I know, for Mr Tebow tells me so

  8. Now that the Broncos got blown out of Gillette Stadium last night, hopefully Tebow talk/mania will be put to rest.
    Remember, Tebow brought this religious stuff on himself, not anybody else, until the media made a big thing out of it.

  9. Beautiful! I love this! You are a genius!

  10. I’m surprised how many people care about one guy who does the kneel/thanks thing. That being said… nice humor piece. 🙂

  11. Your first five words set the whole scene, “God and HER son Jesus…” Love it! People can be just so silly…. 😉

  12. Blondegirl, it makes absolute sense…for the most part, we are illogical, fuzzy thinkers, who believe in witchcraft – or its equivalent. not you and i of course…just everyone else. 🙂 thanks so much for reading and for the provocative comment. continue…

  13. Today I was telling someone that despite Tebow being a good kid, good player, blah, blah, blah, praying in the NFL isn’t new. And there’s a bunch more praying that their team will do well also, so I doubt God takes sides when it comes to football. Typical American, ethno-centric, theocentric thinking.
    The media has made this in to more than it is. I don’t think God cares about ESPN. But if I were to say what I think God is thinking or caring about, that would make me the type of person that drives me crazy. Does that make sense?
