Why Jesus Is My Homeboy

As many of your know, I'm a die-hard Denver Broncos fan – like bleed the colors die-hard. So last night in a wild turn of events we got Tim Tebow in the 25th overall pick in first round of the draft. Tim Tebow, arguably one of the greatest college Football players of all time has had it anything but easy. Now I'm not going to blow smoke up your butt and tell you he's been pal from way back, but I've liked his intensity, and he's solidified 'The Swamp' as a place you fear for another ten years. And as am an Alabama College football fan I can tell you that I've never looked forward to playing him.

That being said here's why I'm glad he's a Bronco:

  • He's a clean-cut kid that (at least by every indication) won't go around snorting coke off of a porno star while shooting guns in the locker room.
  • He's passionate. Like it or not the kid's got heart and doesn't act like he's in it to get paid.
  • He's religious. And while I'm not openly religious I don't think this is a negative as long as he doesn't pander someone else's beliefs.
  • He wants to play. I'm tired of watching player after player complain that the stacks of money that they sit on are not high enough, and I have turf toe. Oh, and BTW LeBron YOU ARE A ROLE MODEL! Unfortunately right now you're only modeling you're doing is turning the future kids to look at basketball as a way to "get paid." Leave the 'thug life' to the gangsters – they're better at it than you – ass.
  • Tebow will be good for Denver as a community leader. Sell tickets? That remains to be seen. But Denver will live and die by players that 'believe in Colorado.' Otherwise (Cutler, Marshal, Portis) you can take the next train to Get-the-hell-out-of-dodge-ville'.
  • Josh McDaniels makes great quarterbacks.
  • Tebow may not be a puritanical quarterback but there's no denying that he's extremely versatile and could be a difficult player for opponents to plan for.
  • He's big and he can run. Never hurt.

Go Broncos.

On Tonight's MNF Game – My Denver Broncos Vs. Some Other Team

Ezechiel 25:17 The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he (The Denver Broncos) who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those (The San Diego Chargers) who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

TGINFLSA - Thank God It's NFL Season Again

As you will all come to hate I'm an absolute die hard NFL and Denver Broncos fan. On my way to my jobs headquarters located on Ft. Lauderdale Florida I listened to the My Broncos play the Cincinnati Bengal's. Admittedly, from what I could get from the play-by-play it wasn't much to write home about. We're a new team, with a new head coach, new defensive coach as well as a mass assortment of new faces within the team ranks. That's the facts so it's a lot of hurry up and wait to see where we go from here.

The beautiful thing about today's game was watching the defense (ranked almost last in 2008) come up from the ashes of its past. It appears that Defensive Coordinator – Mike Nolan has this team coming of age, but I remain skeptical and it remains to be seen over the course of the seasom. Either way, today was a win even if incredibly improbable! Don't know what I'm talking about? Watch the highlights!

Lastly, I've officially joined a NFL Fantasy Football (NFLFF) for the first time. Taking this next leap scares me as the Broncos have always been connection to the NFL, but NFLFF takes it to a whole new level. I'll chime in from time-to-time to tell the three people that are reading this how things are going.
