And Another Thing

And more on The Tebow

The Blob has made its position known on Tim Tebow and his well-chronicled religious devotion. (To summarize: I have no problem with it, because the ostentation seems genuine, if not exactly what the Bible preaches. But those who do have a problem with it aren't "persecuting" the man).

That said .... It's hard not to chuckle a little when you read stuff like this.

I mean, seriously? Forty-three percent of Americans really think God helps Tebow win?

OK, I can see where The Tebow's faith affords him a confidence and serenity that serves him well in pressure situations. But I don't think that's the same thing as saying God helps him win. That suggests an extremely infantile understanding of how a higher power operates, in my humble opinion.

I don't think God's a Broncos fan. I think he's a humanity fan. There is a difference.

Besides, if he's really sitting up there in front of some celestial 52-inch Blu-Ray wearing a No. 15 Broncos jersey, where do you go with that this weekend after the Patriots clobber the Broncos in Foxborough?

You'd pretty much have no recourse, if you were to remain intellectually consistent, but to conclude that means Bill Belichick's more powerful than God. And nobody wants to go there.
