Gotta love this: the upstart Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who has attracted nationwide attention for his ostentatious Christianity, is fond of associating himself with the New Testament verse John 3:16. For you damned heathens out there who may not be familiar with this oft-quoted passage, it says:
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Here’s the sort of thing I’m talking about:
Well, in tonight’s unlikely Broncos win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Mr. Tebow completed ten passes — for a total of 316 yards. Better yet: that’s an average of 31.6 yards per completion.
I don’t know if any of them qualified as a “Hail Mary”, but that’s pretty nifty work nevertheless.
