This guy has been around for a while.
But he just came up on my “radar.” I guess because I’m not a sports fan that’s the reason I’ve never heard of the kid.
Okay so this kid plays football. He plays currently on the college level. Like I said, I’m not a sports fan.
So it came to my attention a few weeks ago that this kids, is well, a “bible thumper” in pads.
On his cheeks where you place the black paint to reduce glare (how much light is needed to produce glare off your cheeks?) he paints some reference in the bible.
Now, he doesn’t have much space to paint this stuff on. I assume he has someone write it on there for him. I mean, he’d have to know how to write backwards if he looked in the mirror to write it.
Well how he came to my attention was a sports comment I saw on line. They said that the announcers seems to cut this kid a lot of slack when he screws up. The reason they assumed was that he had those biblical references printed on his cheeks.
Personally, I think it’s a really childish thing to do. BUT…and you have to remember this, I’M A GOD DAMN ATHEIST.
To me, if I was playing on the opposing team, I’d make it a point to target this guy and take him out of the game.
But that’s just me.
So when I saw this online I just had to share it with you.
Seems “Bible Boy” has a “sensitive” side to him.
In other words, he cries. He cries especially if he screws up. I’m surprised he just doesn’t come out when he does that and say, “I want to be held….boo hooo hooo…”
American football is such a manly sport… well, use to be….

Can…can I get a hug here?…..

Here’s the article and the clip.

The Crying Game: Tim Tebow and the 10 Biggest Crybabies in Sports
Tebow might get the record for the longest cry in sports.

While the game was still going you could see him on the bench in tears, and a teammate gingerly held his head in support.

But then on the field after the game, Tebow was still visibly crying as the sideline reporter asked him the stupid non-question of "How disappointing is this for you?"

Suck it up Tim. If you cry when you win it's a little more understandable, but when you lose you just seem like a crybaby.

So what’s your opinion on this? Unless you need to be held first…..

I would have cried to, if i was going for history. They were just one more game from winning 3 National Championships in 4 years.

I can see that...BUT HE ALWAYS CRIES!.... And the sportscasters don't criticize him as they do the others in his position......
What's this kid gonna do if he turns pro? You think those linemen are gonna worry about him crying and his little cheek post-its?.....
My money's on the linemen....

He has only "cried" 1 time on television. Unless you count "the promise"

And after he made this speech, they went on to win a national championship in 2009, and went 22-0 until they lost to Alabama. What is to "criticize" he cried so what? He has done more in 4 years as a college football player than many professional players ever do. Well if you knew anything about Tebow than you would know that the way he plays is "all or nothing". The main thing the opposing defense talks about is how to tackle Tebow because he is so hard to bring down and he never gives up. So i don't think he is gonna have a problem, with your little bet.

So the "Pray in one hand and piss in the other and see which one fills up first" is true then?

I guess because I grew up here in Texas where football is EVERYTHING.
I mean EVERYTHING, I don't look at some kid as acceptable.
In this day and age where we've had over 5000 of our men and women killed overseas in Iraq in a frivolous war, that I just can't see crying over a football game.
It's just a game.
Plain and simple.
A few years ago my business partner was driving past a church in Richardson. It's right next to HWY 75. There was a bunch of people across the street from it carrying signs.
She had to go down the street in front of the church.
The people with the signs we protesting the funeral.
They were the ones with the "Fags" signs.
It was a funeral for a fallen soldier.
They were out there protesting at his funeral.
A few months before I was making up drill with my National Guard unit. Word came down that a Texas Guardsmen had died due to an IED in Iraq.
It got really quite in the unit when we heard that.
So to me, and this is just me, no one else...loosing a game, or a football game is nothing to really cry about.
A death in the family or a close friend or a disaster, things along those lines, are something to cry about.
But that's just me.

It's just when you put it into perspective you realize just how, well, childish his actions were.
What is a concern of mine is as a society, as a people, care more for a football game then those who die in the service of their country?
Are we or have we become that shallow?
