Tim Tebow is everywhere. This week he takes on the Golden Boy Tom Brady. If you had to design the perfect quarterback you model him after Brady. Brady is a winner, as is Tebow. But the similarities end there and this drives people crazy. Today we are going to examine why so many people have come to hate…. Tebow Time.
You hate him because his arms are bigger than yours and your girlfriend knows it.
You hate him because he was home schooled and home schooled kids are weird.
You hate him because he has a chiseled Jaw.
You hate him because he wears his beliefs on his sleeve. Or eye black/wrist band.
You hate him because he had an autobiography written at age 24.
You hate him because you’ve never been able to pull off the jump pass.
You hate him because he wasn’t supposed to get drafted in the first round.
You hate him because he was in a commercial celebrating his relationship with his Mom and people took it as a pro life message.
You hate him because you want to draft a QB in next year’s draft but has making it near impossible to do so. (This one is directed at John Elway)
You hate him because you got Tebowed.
You hate him because Skip Bayless loves him.
You hate him because no matter how bad he is in the first 3 quarters, he turns into a different player in the 4th.
You hate him because he is the only man that could kill Chuck Norris.
You hate him because no one ever mentions his defense, Matt Prater’s clutch leg, or Willis McGahee’s resurgence. Even though everyone always mentions his defense, Matt Prater’s clutch leg and Willis Mcgahee’s resurgence.
You hate him because he’s saving himself for marriage.
You hate him because the Green Bay Packers are 13-0 and no one is really talking about it.
You hate him because 3 guys are on pace to break Dan Marino’s single season passing yards mark and no one talks about them.
You hate him because everyone else is doing it.
You hate him because you don’t know him and you refuse to read past headlines and the talking heads of ESPN.
You hate him because no matter how many reasons there are for why he shouldn’t succeed, he does.
You hate him for being the role model that sports has been dying for.
You hate him because he didn’t actually win a game, the other team lost it. Every week. Tebow isn’t responsible for any of this. None.
You hate him because no matter how many over the top and even rude questions that people ask him he smiles and responds with more class than anyone you’ve ever seen.
You hate him because he’s a better person than you. That’s right, I said it. Think about this, many people watch reality shows for the drama and how crappy their lives are so the viewer can say “Geez, at least my life’s not like THAT.” This is the same reason you want to see him fall. It will make you feel better about you. I’ll bet that struck a chord, it’s because it’s true.
You hate him because you can’t explain him, and we always fear what we do not understand.
As you can see these are all ridiculous reasons to hate Tim Tebow. But people do and it blows our minds. Enjoy the ride folks. We’d rather listen to stories about Tebow all day compared to coaches raping young boys, linebackers shooting guns in neighborhoods or fights breaking out after basketball games.
