Quote of the Day
"I hated Tim Tebow before I knew anything about his religion. Specifically, I hated him from 2006 through 2009 when he was the quarterback for the Florida Gators. I hated him far less when Alabama finally stuffed Florida in the SEC championship game at the end of the 2009 season and he sat on the sidelines bawling like a baby. At first I laughed – 'Ha, ha — how do you like it now, Timmy? Why don’t you go up in the stands and hold Mommy and Daddy’s hands?' I even clipped a newspaper photo of him, tears streaming down his cheeks, and hung it on my office wall."
-- Allen Barra in an article in Salon called "Don't Fall for Tebow"
The piece itself is kind of a mess, not unlike Tebow's record on the field. But for the most part it mercilessly ridicules Jesus's favorite quarterback (and just about everyone else's least favorite) and that's always fine with me. I can't think of anybody I'd more like to see turn up on either end of a boy-rape scandal.
