Football’s Missionary Position

December 7, 2009

Notice anything funny in this picture?  Anything distracting?

No.  It’s not the horrible color combination of orange and blue although that is distracting.

He’s written a bible verse reference on his under eye stickers!  Ugh.  The crowd signs with “John 3:16” are bad enough.  Now we have to see them on faces?!

Tim Tebow is the Florida Gators quarterback and a Heisman trophy winner.  He gets a lot of screen time.  He’s the homeschooled son 0f Christian missionaries.  Not surprising.

“He doesn’t do it for show or for people to talk about,” sophomore offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey said. “It’s just a way to show what he’s about, what he believes, how he lives. It’s really that simple.”

Ha.  He’s the son of missionaries.  Of course he does it for people to talk about!  The goal is for people to look up the verse.  If it was just for himself, he would write it in reverse so that he could read it in the mirror!  Or he would write it on his wrists so that he would see it every time he looked at the playbook.  It’s on his face so that other people see it and so that it appears on television.

Any chance that he’ll pick a more entertaining verse?

    So you have a problem with free speech?

    By the way you got the verse wrong. Check it out.

    I didn’t say that he shouldn’t be allowed to do it. He’s free to draw whatever he wants on his face. I just don’t think that he should because it’s annoying. He should also be honest about his motives.

    What verse did I get wrong?
