Divine intervention, and Republican love, not enough as Tim Tebows out.

"Darn you Sarah Palin! Darn you straight to heck!"
Courtesy of ESPN:

The New England Patriots ended Tebowmania in convincing fashion with a 45-10 rout of the Denver Broncos on Saturday night. The Patriots led 14-0 after the first quarter and 35-7 at halftime en route to piling up their most points and most total yards in a playoff game in franchise history. 

Of course this comes as no surprise to those of us who are well versed in the destructive properties of a Sarah Palin endorsement. Palin likes the cut of Tebow's jib, Tebow's shining star suddenly starts plummeting to earth until it burns to ashes on reentry into reality. How many times have we seen that exact same scenario play out?

I know, I know, there is really no proof that Palin had anything to do with the end of Tebow's winning streak. But let's face it, he WAS winning consistently until Palin got all moist while gushing about him in an interview with Fox News, which was followed by three consecutive losses, then a brief one game respite, before today's loss to the Patriots who piled up the "most points and most yards in playoff game franchise history."


Well you all might want to help me with this one, because sometimes I can be so forgetful, but WHO was it that said they did NOT believe in coincidences?

By the way, if Romney's GOP competitors had a lick of sense they would pay the Grizzled Mama to endorse him. I cannot think of anything else that is so certain to end his candidacy.

Update: Tom Brady, who DEMOLISHED the Broncos today, has a little advice for Tebow from 2008.

Do you see how it's done now Timmy?

    Dangerous thing to believe the hype over your stats when you wear letters and numbers under your eyes on national TV.

    So, so Tebow crashed and burned. Keep your religion out of my sports, and I won't play ball in your church.

    Go Packers!!! and the really classy Aaron Rodgers (not tebowow grandstanding.)

    C'mon, you gotta give the Pats SOME of the credit. If people keep blaming Sarah for Tebow losing, Mitt might take credit when we win the Super Bowl.

    GO PATS!!!

    It was a beautiful game to watch! Tebow is probably a very nice young man with a promising football career, but getting mixed up with Palin is not good...

    She keeps taking digs at Romney and he keeps rising, so if she were to endorse him he would fall - right?

  5. Anonymous9:53 PM

    Brady's comments in 2008 - Tebow, are you listening? Sarah, are you listening?

  6. At least Her Heinous, Mrs Mayor Half-Governor Quitter is still true to form:

    every single thing the Palins touch turns to shite.


  7. Here's one for Mitt:

    Read below the pic, too.

  8. Oh the young man CRYING!! Well this is football so there can only be one winner...the best team one...them's the breaks, there's always next year...shit or get off the pot......opps...I guess I got carried away with the cliches'!

    Baldy Palin probably was paid to endorse Tebow...she doesn't care where her paper comes from as long as you meet her price...what's that called again...the term seems to have escaped me!

    I wish those fucking people stop calling me! I'm not into skanks... I prefer clean educated ladies!

    Those Palin girls are just like their mother and Grandma Sally, they are all ridden hard and put away wet!!!!!


    Ps: git your fucking curse off of me. I thought you were into black basketball players?

  10. Who is Mitt cheering?

    Spread these around.

    I keep reading how liberals HATE Tebow...what a ridiculous statement!
    What I hate is the suggestion that God is at his side helping him win football games because he is such a good Christian.
    Tim read what Tom said.
    GO PACK!!!!!!

    It's way past time that this religious slant constantly being pushed by the right be stopped especially when it comes to sports and government. Many of us are getting truly sick and tired of it.

    You show me a political person pushing their stuff - their beliefs which typically include being anti women rights - they immediately lose my support and vote. And, I never listen to them again!

    What a bunch of crap we as Americans are being subjected to!!!
    Keep your religious beliefs to yourself is my advice.

  15. Anonymous12:37 AM

    God (aka Tom Brady) had to teach people a lesson in how you really win.

    Wishing, praying, and bragging won't make it so.

  16. Anonymous2:09 AM

    The overrated Broncos got crucified. HA HA HA
    I just had to say it. You know some sports writer some where is going to put this to paper and get all sorts of hate mail from Tebow fans.
    As it says in Tebow's own bible, those who wear their faith all over their sleeves (cheeks, whatever) are false.

  17. Anonymous2:26 AM

    I couldn't be happier - Tebow loses, Sarah's a loser once again and Pats WIN! Wheeeee!!


    Hopefully the stench of the Toad endorsement of Newt is enough to do him in. Hate that guy.

    Tebow sets himself up for criticism with the scriptures under his eyes. I believe that most people would leave him alone and not give a crap if it wouldn't be for that. One thing is for sure, he is NO Aaron Rogers. Rogers is about as classy as they come. He keeps his faith private and doesn't bring to work with him.
    Go Pack Go!!

  20. St Francis of Assisi was holding the first convention of his new monastic organization in a mountain town in Italy. One brother came up to him and said, "Brother Francis - a miracle happened while I was on my way here! I was riding my donkey along a very narrow mountain path, and the donkey's foot slipped off and we seemed about to fall down the cliff. But I said a quick prayer to the Virgin Mary and my donkey regained his footing! How great is God's power!" At this point, another monk came up and said, "I too had a miracle on the journey here. I was wading across a fast-flowing stream, and lost my footing and was swept away. I would certainly have drowned had I not raised a quick prayer to my guardian angel. At that point I was carried to within reach of an overhanging branch and was able to grab it and haul myself out of the stream. What marvels happen every day!" Francis replied, "I am sincerely grateful that you have made it safely to our meeting point, brothers. On my own journey here, I too was protected by heavenly forces - so much so, in fact, that nothing exciting happened."

    Wonderful game Mr. Brady and Pats!. You all looked like the pros you are, while the Broncos looked like peewee football.
    Ridiculous that the announcers were so surprised as it was pretty much a given that Tebow is no match for Brady. No match.
    Disgusting that there was so much attention all week on Tebow, but Tom just stayed his beautiful course.
    And the went home to Giselle.

  22. Anonymous5:20 AM

    Wow, Gryphen. Once again you've shown how small-minded and mean-spirited you really are. Plays well to your small-minded and mean-spirited readers, but not to thinking, broad-minded people. Tebow is in no way tied to Palin just because she (like everyone else, apparently) can't stop talking about him. These criticisms of a person just because they are open about their faith simply plays into the hands of right-wing evangelicals screaming about the war on religion. To read the snarkiness regarding Tebow on this blog related solely to his faith is disgusting. Criticize a person's faith only after you examine how they live their life. If you would stop being so proud of your skills at snark and sarcasm and actually looked at how Tebow spends his time and lives his life, you would be ashamed. Or at least you should be, but I'm not holding out any hope.

  23. Rik Hill5:24 AM

    That comment by Brady is one of the most succinct and powerful statements I have ever read. Round of snaps buddy!

  24. Anonymous5:27 AM

    Tebow is being pwned and not the way you think.

    By all accounts, he is a genuinely nice young man who feels his good works--largely unheralded--off the field are much more important than what he does in the stadium. I wholeheartedly agree.

    His "taking a knee" is not new behaviour. He's always done this. As far as I'm concerned, this is no more sanctimonious than other players crossing themselves or pointing to the sky. But his gesture of gratitude has now been usurped by others.

    *He* isn't the one out there promoting "Tebowing;" that seems to be the domain of those Jesus warned about wanting to "pray in public."

    At this point, I'm not sure there's much he can do other than let it die a natural death. Believe me, we Americans are sufficiently shallow that we'll happily follow the next fad as soon as it comes along.

  25. Thank God Tebow was outplayed! I'm really sick of all these people who praise the Lord for their victories. Like God is paying any attention - if there is a god.

    It's just an outward display of a massive ego.

  26. Anonymous5:43 AM

    me thinks Mr God and Mrs God were watching the New Orleans/San Fran game. Not sure which one was pulling for whom, but I believe they each had different favorites,for their infighting made a terrific play off game ... right down to the wire!

  27. You wrote, "By the way, if Romney's GOP competitors had a lick of sense they would pay the Grizzled Mama to endorse him. I cannot think of anything else that is so certain to end his candidacy."

    She'd jump at the money now. That mausoleum of a house in Arizona doesn't run itself. Anybody know if she's put it on the market?

  28. Tebow himself is not the one claiming God helps him win. I cut him slack. Tebow is (overly) religious and he is a quarterback. He sees God's hand in everything, including football. But it is the media promoting divine intervention b/c the idea gets viewers and readers to the story. Just another waste of our time rather than their reporting real news we need to know.

  29. @ nswfm

    The pic's too hippy-dippy for the GOP folk and they won't read the caption, to be sure. But I did and watched the 28 minute documentary/ad -- he's a scary guy with a sickly smile that says, "Don't hurt me."

    As it looks like this creep is going to run against Obama, VOTE! Vote early, vote often...:)

    Thank you Gryphen!!!
    I'm getting so tired of this ridiculous, FAKE, phony religious B.S. having ANYTHING to do with the game of football.
    My husband and I get nto some passionate disagreements about Tim Tebow and his, ahem, "talent." He is of the belief that Tim Tebow knows something about football and doesn't care (my husband) about whether or not he makes a HUMONGOUS production of prayer on the field. I, on the other hand, find the whole display so absolutely annoying and ridiculous that I can't see past it and even give him credit for throwing a ball.
    Whew. I feel better now. Thanks for the venue.
    (And, p.s., it is so refreshing to see something else besides the ol' SP on your site. I'm attempting to quit my addiction to all things Palin and you are helping.)

  35. Anonymous6:59 AM

    Now, all my religious friends would feel that this is some kind of attack on their beliefs. ("God is everywhere, and of course HE cares," etc etc.)

    I actually think that Brady shows more respect for God than does Tebow.

    Religion should feed the spirit more than it feeds the ego. JIMO

    Peace. SunnyVee :)

  36. Anonymous7:02 AM

    Heck.. I'm a long term Broncos fan, but even I was rooting against them.. This Tebow BS has gotten absolutely repulsive.

    It's a damned football game. Sports. Not a friggin religious exercise and these cretins suggesting their God would intervene on their behalf over all other teams (or all other peoples, as is the case for those suggesting the US is uniquely "blessed") are HERETICS... If they ever read their bibles and the teachings of their Jesus, they would know that to be the case.

    I know Elway detests Tebow, though he is cowed by the religious wackos supporting him. Maybe he can find an excuse to can him now.

  37. Anonymous7:08 AM

    Well thank Zeus. I've always thought American Football to be a particularly brutal game.

    I see humiliation, sadness and a touch of anger on Tebows face as his team loses. This is the face of a "Christianist" - winning and the power to defeat his opponents "proves" that his god is the best.

    There is none of the gentle compassion that Jesus taught, and rejection of social status as important. Jesus looks at the inward heart, not the outward appearance.

  38. Jesus might like Tebow, but Aaron Rodgers is GOD! Go Pack.

  39. Anonymous7:20 AM

    "Criticize a person's faith only after you examine how they live their life."

    Fine, asshole. I criticize Tebow for associating with the HATE group Focus on the Family. If he would just act like every other religious athlete and keep it in his heart instead of spread all over the place, he would not get so much shit for it.
    he is going against his own bible, if you want to know the truth.

  42. Anonymous7:35 AM

    Agree wholeheartedly with Brady.

    It's been painful to watch the circus of jokes on Tebow's staged christian witness; by painting verses on himself and kneeling for prayer before a game. It's just a game. Jesus said it's always better to pray alone in a prayer closet.

    Tebow who signs million-dollar contracts for wrestling with a piece of pigskin doesn't really generate a thirst for spiritual things in Bronco fans during these games. The atmosphere is pure -game on!- and it grieves me, as a christian, to see a young likeable man, like Tebow, sully the name of Christ, dragging Him down to size like He's concerned about sports while others at that very moment in the world are experiencing tragedy.

  43. Anonymous7:40 AM

    I agree with 6:47, God has more important things to do, like saving lives all over the planet.

    Before high school and college games, teams pray, hoping to win. The same thing happens before professional sports games. Multiple that by the number of kids praying to pass a test, people praying to win the lottery, more people praying to meet their own true love, get rid of that no good bum, there are literally millions of prayers being made every day.

    Some of the more important prayers are for sick relatives and friends to get better, for a job so the family will have something to eat and will be able to keep their house, for the terrible storm to let up, for the plane to land safely. In the order of things, winning a football game just doesn't seem as important as rescuing people trapped in the sinking cruise ship, restoring electricity after the snowstorm, delivering fuel to Nome and curing children of terrible diseases.

    To put some perspective on how God goes around granting wishes and prayers, during the 2008 election, Sarah Palin say that God wouldn't let the wrong people win. The wrong people did not win. Thank you, God.

  46. "TMZ spoke with [Tebow's] Pastor Wayne Hanson, who runs Summit Church in the Denver suburb of Castle Rock. He attributes the success of Tebow and the Broncos to God's favor. The website writes:

    Hanson tells us, "It's not luck. Luck isn't winning 6 games in a row. It's favor. God's favor."

    Pastor Hanson adds, "God has blessed his hard work."

    We asked Hanson if Tebow would be winning games if he wasn't such a strong believer -- and the pastor replied, "No, of course not."",wp13741

    I couldn't believe what poor losers the Broncos were - starting fights on the field, simply because they knew that they couldn't win.

    Bronco fans ought to be ashamed of the poor sportsmanship of their team.
