Tebow Unlikely To Attend NFL Draft, Instead Might Go Fishing With Jesus

Casting a pall over the utter delight that would have been derived by we nonbelievers and heathens watching Jesus Quarterback sit there trying to keep his composure while team after team passed on him, Tim Tebow may not accept the invitation to attend the NFL Draft next month.

Why? He wants to go fishing with Jesus or something.

From Peter King (via The Sporting Blog):

And he said he hasn’t decided whether to accept the NFL’s invitation to attend the draft in New York — though he sounded like he wouldn’t.

“I’ve got to figure out what will be more fun for me and best for my family,” he said. “But I have to say I liked what [Cleveland tackle] Joe Thomas did on the day of the draft a couple of years ago — he went fishing with his dad.”

Oops. Got that wrong. You can see how I might have screwed that up – you know, with Tebow’s evangelical religiosity and the fact that Jesus was an avid fisherman, previous to his career as a prophet (also: an architect).

But I can see now that Tebow did not mean he might go fishing with Jesus. Instead, he might go fishing with his dad.

And I heard God loves panfish, so bring along some slip bobbers and leeches lest you disappoint Big Daddy, Timmy boy!
