Okay, I have to confess: I can't really hate on Tebow winning. I mean, I hate hate hate the Tebow media phenomenon, and I'm pretty sure he's not a good quarterback, but I can't hate it when he wins.

As far as "Tebowing" goes, I'm too accustomed to watching pro sports to mind anything of that sort. I've seen approximately a million baseball players cross themselves -- same thing. Now, I'm not saying it wasn't hilarious when Stephen Tulloch sacked Tebow and then knelt in imitation of him, because it was, but if Tebow wants to keep doing that after big plays, fuck it.

I just wish the media didn't make A Thing of Tebow kneeling to thank God after big plays. Nobody gives a shit about it in baseball, right? Nobody gives a shit even in football, if a running back or receiver kisses his fingers and points at the sky. Sports players in general are superstitious and inclined to thank Jesus for a whole bunch of things.

... this just in: Tebow passed for 316 yards in this game. Tebow 3:16. AUGH. Someone get out the rainbow wig.

I sure don't want Denver to win the Super Bowl, but I'd like them to beat New England, because fuck the Pats. I'm kind of hoping that, in the course of time, they get beat by the Ravens. I grew up a Cleveland fan, but nowadays I don't hate the Ravens anymore -- sure, they used to be the Browns, but it wasn't the players' fault they moved to Baltimore. I will hate Art Modell until the day I die, but the players don't deserve to suffer for that.

Football is fucking weird. After the Lions' loss last night, we've had to figure out who we're rooting for. Honestly, it's got to be Green Bay, as much as we hate them for beating us a whole lot. They're still representing our division. So... Ravens/Packers for the Super Bowl? Who's with me?
