Sam Cook is sounding the alarm. He's qualified to do this, as someone who watches kids, and other big young people, play games against each other. Sam Cook then writes about how those kids played those games.
Sam Cook has discovered a "Tim Tebow", who, while wearing an orange-and-blue outfit, frequently advertising Nike, the Southeastern Conference, and Tostitos, also has black tape under his eyes with writing on it. The writing? -- IT REFERS TO THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE.
Not only that, but Cook goes further, and offers evidence that this Tebow believes the Bible in a way reminiscent of American wingnuts (Billy Graham) or right-wing reactionaries (Jimmy Carter).
This Tebow is enrolled in college in Gainesville, Florida, where he runs over people while carrying a striped, leather toy. And Sam Cook is glad that education will end this year, because this Tebow, who is exceptionally effective on "third down", is unlikely to embrace, anytime soon, religious universalism.
Yes, Tim Tebow both rushed and passed for 20 touchdowns last season. But remember, next time he's running a draw out of the spread formation: His father may not be enamored with the theology of the Catholic Church in, obviously, the Philippines. Sam Cook identifies himself as a (Martin) Lutheran, which means he has no objections to the theology of the Catholic Church. Especially in the Philippines.
Yes, I, too, am glad Tebow is a senior. One shudders if he had redshirted. How much can this republic take?
