Jets Worry Tim Tebow Will Be Distracted By Big City Church Life

The Onion reports:

“Manhattan offers worship services at all hours of the day, with some places bearing witness to the Good News till 4 a.m.—not to mention all those millions of nonbelievers walking around to convert—and a young player with a healthy thirst for Christianity could really have himself some fun here,” said Jets coach Rex Ryan, adding that the sheer number of churches in New York means Tebow could tithe himself into bankruptcy if he’s not careful. “In the past, he’s managed to keep his God habit in check and focus on football, but in a city where a pew is never more than a minute away, we don’t know if he’ll be able to resist the temptation.”

Oy does it bug me this guy is going to be a Jet. I don’t follow football, but were I to do so, I would be a Jets fan. The other day walking through the Port Authority I saw both a newsstand and a book store each with stacks of Tebow jerseys on display. Neither of these places sold any other clothing or sports paraphernalia whatsoever. The book store had the stack of jersey and the display of a sample shirt at the middle of the front entrance, it looked like a prominently displayed altar.

To a second string quarter back. Yeesh.
