Dear Tim Tebow,
By Kickntrue on 12/3/09
Do you play golf... even a little bit? Eh- who cares? We'll teach you.

Look, I don't want to sound mean, but most pro scouts don't think you have a long and fruitful career waiting for you in the NFL, at least not at quarterback, which I know is where you want to play. Sure, some team will snap you up because of your leadership and intense work ethic, but lets face it, you are a fullback or tightend, and no fullback or tightend has ever lead a team. Plus, and I hate to break this to you, football is kind of tired of you.

Now golf, here is a sport where you can shine. It's just you, the ball and the course. Think how many babies you can kiss while you're playing, as you stroll down the fairways to your ball. People love your high fives after the game, but now you can give them in the game.

Think how many people you'll be able to reach. Golf's sponsorship opportunities are limitless and you don't have to wear a helmet all the time and hide your beautiful face and message. The passages on your eyeblack... keep them! It will be your thing (have you seen the pants we let John Daly wear?). Plus, now you have a hat, shirt, pants and golf bag to decorate with your favorite Bible verses.

Football is full of thugs, druggies and general creeps. You are a bastion of hope and inspiration in that muck. Golf has now had its first failed drug test and we're currently working on adding infidelity and lying to the mix. The way is being paved for you. Golf needs you Tim- and we can keep you star shining bright.

Please consider these words. I will look forward to seeing you on the course.

Sincerely,

PGA Tour/Golf Sponsors/Golf Fans/Golf In General


PS- ROLL TIDE!

Can people really stand this bible thumping d-bag outside of Gainseville?

Kickntrue says:
@jattruia- while I can understand your point... here are a couple quotes from SI.com's Andy Staples and Stewart Mandel that sum things up.

"Whether you consider him genuine or fake, Tebow, at the end of the day, is a Heisman Trophy-, SEC- and BCS-title winning quarterback who goes to class, goes to church and circumcises people less fortunate than him. More people should be so intolerable."

"While I certainly understand why non-Florida fans are "tired" of Tebow hype, the fact that so many people are actively hoping for the kid to fail is a really sad commentary on society. Fortunately, there's no shortage of money-driven/steroid-abusing/wife-cheating superstars they can root for in the pros who don't have the audacity to quote bible scripture or high-five their fans."

@jattruia - Sorry but I take offense to that remark. Embracing one's faith does NOT make them a d-bag - in fact, society can use MORE people like Tim Tebow. Look, I am NOT a Gator fan (I am rooting for a Longhorn-Gator game), but I am a HUGE Tim Tebow fan. He is real, not something manufactured by society or culture. He believes and totally has bought in to the fact that God gives us EVERYTHING!!! He appreciates what his Father has done for him and gives Him all the glory. I am truly sorry you feel the way you do...

Jattruia says:
Hey, not saying he's a bad guy or anything, i'm sure he's every parents dream come true. But, the bible thumping, scripture quoting bs get old quick. I don't see other qb's putting "athiest" on their eye black. I just get extremely annoyed with the religious force feeding in sports (and not only from Tebow). No one blames baby jebus for a loss, no need to thank him for a win.

CJ Spiller for (long-shot) Heisman! T-I-G-E-RRRRRRRR-S! Fight tigers, fight tigers, fight, fight, fight!

@jattruia - Like I said, I am truly sorry you feel that way. I will pray for you...
Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty" - John 6:35

Jattruia says:
I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.

To avoid further awkwardness, I'm just going to stick with golf convo's on this site.

One bible beater against another. Tebow vs. McCoy. While neither might have a long and fruitful career in the NFL, I would rather hang with Colt on the golf course. I think there is a chance an unapproved household word would come out after a shank into the hazard. He might even throw a club.

Hook'em Horns!

Kickntrue says:
@trikai- "Colt McCoy" ... Nope, never heard of him.

@jattruia- Amen to that brother! ... oops.
12/3/09
 
bducharm says:
@jattruia - I don't feel awkward at all...

@trikai - HOOK 'EM indeed - Colt WILL win the Heisman. Colt or Tim may not have a great career in the NFL BUT they are definitely quality men who will have an impact in life - WAY more important!!!

trikai says:
@kickntrue - It's understandable you are upset. I would be too if a back up quarterback from The University of Texas transferred to Ole' Miss and beat my team. Better Than Ezra still rocks!

jattruia said, "I just get extremely annoyed with the religious force feeding in sports (and not only from Tebow)."

I want to agree 100%. I'll be honest. I do not believe in God, and I have no problem with people who do because I understand religion helps out many people. However, many groups are trying to pass legislation banning figures of a certain religion in public places (eg. a statue of Mary in a public park) and I can understand why. When I am watching a sport, I really do not want to hear how God got you to this point and he is great and is the reason for all of your success.

Backquak says:
Matt if you don't have a problem with people who do have faith, why does it bother you that they want to give god the credit for their success? It sounds like you do have a problem with anyone of faith sharing their personal beliefs.
While I don't think God cares about the outcome of a sporting event, I think its great that the athletes are giving God the credit, and that God is more important to them than a game.
I think that if someone's faith doesn't bother you, it shouldn't bother you when they practice their faith by letting others know that they believe in something.

Did Kickntrue say that he circumcises people? That's just plain awkward.

swflynn says:
And as far as Tim Tebow sticks to amatuer golf, I'm down with this. I'd prefer that he just go away....which is exactly what will happen if he tries to remain a QB.
12/3/09
 
bducharm says:
@Matt - I ABSOLUTELY agree with the seperation of church and state!!! However, I agree with @Backquak!!! This country was founded on the basis of religious freedoms. As a Christian, I totally give you the right to worship or to not worship. This is what makes the USA GREAT!!! We will NOT be beheaded for claiming our faith!!!

@swflynn - I wouldn't wager any amount that Tebow goes away. I believe he will have a place in the NFL. He may not end up being a starting QB, but I believe he will play in the NFL...we'll see. Only God knows what is going to happen, right???

mmontisano says:
if our fore fathers based our country on faith, why was the first amendment the separation of church and state??????

jattruia, i totally agree.

mmontisano says:
oh yeah, GO BUCKEYES!

bducharm says:
@hackman - so that we would NOT legislate faith AGAIN, like it was happening in England...

Guys, remember - we respect your right NOT to believe, just don't disrespect our right TO believe! If you do not want "faith shoved down your throat", there is something called the mute or channel button. Exercise your right to use it...

Peace and Love...

didn't mean for it to sound disrespectful, but it's a 2-way street. if you don't want people to complain, don't bring it up.

jerdman says:
GO BUCKEYES! and as a buckeye I still think he's a tremendous football player and person. I'm not touching religion here, thats just he rolls and thats fine. I've got mad respect for him even though he was part of that shalacking of OSU a few years ago. and unfortunately, Terrelle Pryor doesn't have a fraction of the work ethic that Tebow does.

I bet Tebow could crush the ball.

TeT says:
Wow, that got off point real quick. Anybody giving odds on yea or nay "could Tebow play golf if he wanted"
12/3/09
 
bducharm says:
I say he definitely could play golf - he may not be that good but he could play! He actually would fit in nicely here on OOB...

tennesseeboy says:
As a Tennessee boy, I spend at least 3 hours a day hating the Gators during football season and about 1 hour a day hating them during the off season.

Since Tebow has beaten us for the last time, I will say that he is certainly a class act and I have great respect for him as a person and a football player.

Tim, I hope you and your coach leave the University of Florida with a national championship this year.

tennesseeboy says:
Could someone please explain this to me.

A athlete can thank his teammates, his high school coach, his wife, or his parents and know one cares. But when he thanks God people get all upset. Why?

eastmountaingolf says:
From an agnostic, I'd like to offer my perspective:

I neither condemn nor condone Tebow's relation with his believed maker. I'm fine with it, Period.

However, for those on the pro-message side of the argument, I'd like to offer the following philosophical question: what if the guy worshipped Satan, and those eye bandages said "DARK" and "LORD"?

I simply wonder.

Otherwise, funny article from a Bama supporter and, yes, T Squared is welcome in my group any day. There's no discriminating on the links, aside from net scores.
