Jake Plummer on with Vic and Gary
“I can think back to when I was a kid watching sports, I mean, me and my brothers were big sports fans. It always seemed to kind of trivialize that importance of a relationship of that sorts, you know, that people have with their…with Jesus Christ or their God, whatever it was, it seemed an inappropriate place to bring it up after a football game or whatever, but…I’m not dissing the guy for his beliefs, you know, he’s obviously a good kid, he’s got a lot of strong morals and values, it’s just…you know, I’ll TiVo it, then I’ll mute it.”
A few weeks ago, my friend Ted Bartlett wrote that Tebow brought a side of religious zealotry with his main course as quarterback of the Denver Broncos.
The side dish seems to be getting larger and larger and larger. I don't think you have to be an oracle to see where all of this is heading--only five games in and now we have the talking heads discussing the idiocy of mentioning your wife after every touchdown as a substitute for mentioning Jesus Christ.
Wait until the media starts pinning Tebow down on his gay marriage positions, etc, which he has refused to discuss. Oh, wait, you think this sort of thing is going to die down ten games in? Sure it will.
John Elway thought he was evaluating quarterbacks. As it turns out, he's also got to decide if the circus generates more money or distraction.
