Default Great Article on Tebow

Yeah, yeah, yeah, more Tebow nonsense, but this is a pretty great article.

I don't understand why people are so impressed by this Klosterman article.. a bunch of horse**** if you ask me.

People buy into his nonsense for the same reason they bought into the Tebow anti-hype coming into the nfl... because the "smart people" were saying it...

Maybe because he's the only guy who has tried to peel back the layers of why this is really happening? He's a sociologist in many ways and always tries to understand reasoning for things people accept as simple truth.

Sorry if this is too much for you.

Reason? Social understanding? MacGruder has no time for these things.

Any article not stating, clearly and unequivocally, "TEBOW IS NUMBER 1!!11!1!" is to be ignored and mocked.

To hell with curiosity. The world is flat.

Note that it has been guys like MacGruder and Broncbow who reacted negatively to a thoughtful look at what makes Tebow a divisive figure. Short of Klosterman declaring it a matter of "dooshes being haterz," I don't think any write up on the topic had a chance to appeal to them.

this guy doesn't peel back the onion at all imo.. he just added another pretentious layer that didn't need to be there... tebow is a great player.. why can't people just accept that? because they don't understand how and claim others are the stupid ones not them.. now that is projecting....

I love how his first sentence states he watched the game and the next sentence had me wondering whether or not he a actually watched it at all.

Then trying to read it was like trying to listen to someone pile on a bunch of syllyables why really saying nothing at all. WHAT A POMPUS ASS.

I love HOW his murderer metaphor had nothing to do with Tim at all. It reminded me of Billy Madison and the puppy metaphor.

"People once thought the earth was flat. 1 But here's a more complex scenario: If you were living in Greece during the sixth century, and there was no way to deduce what the true shape of the earth was, and there was no way to validate or contradict the preexisting, relatively universal belief that the world..."

Actually all they had to do is got out to the horizon and notice how the line of sight was decreasing in height by the distance traveled. You could actually use that equation to not only tell the eart was round, but how big it was. Columbus knew this... College, highschool tebow proved he was not flat... what a stoopid doosh

The last sentence really sums up the Tebow Thing and it has everything and very little to do with football.


"He is making people wonder if they should try to believe things they don't actually believe."

I'll have to ask Kaylore. I am already his 4th wife so I need to sort out whether I get to have multiple hubbys. I used to be married to Hotrod viritually, but we broke up via OM PM and then he disappeared. So sad, he was the best ex-faux-internet hubby a girl could ask for.

You cannot marry boobs unless he leaves boobs as collateral, in which case some "fooling around" is permitted.

Sorry, boobs you heard my man, I only do as he says. and if the fooling around occurs be sure the camera has been charged, sometimes Kaylore gets distracted and forgets.

The obscured truth, the "mystery" and unexplainable thing about Tebow is that he keeps kicking everybody's ass.

He's good. He can throw it. This will all seem funny one day. But I suspect it will take years to work through the "Tebow learned to throw with his legendary work ethic!"

He cold always throw -- the problem is his mechanics from the feet up to the arm are too slow for the NFL game, and he's had a learning curve to run NFL plays. Huge shocker.
