Ok, so some backstory, realquick, I promise:
My students, half of whom are football players staring down an NFL combine in another couple of years, HATE Tim Tebow. Don’t know who Tebow is? Well, welcome back from Canada or wherever the hell you’ve been. I fucking loathe football and I know who the child-circumsizing, self-righteous bastard is. (See? Your students rub off on you. When they’re not trying to rub up ON you).
My dad, a fanatical Florida Gators fan (think Jimmy Fallon’s character from Fever Pitch, but with Orange and Blue. Going home is like having a seizure), LOVES Tim Tebow.
So I was at an impasse when I came across this tidbit of hilarity: Tebow is noted for being a bitch by his peers.
Not really, obvs, since I just posted it. My moral impasses are both short-lived and tragically trivial.
Here’s the highlight:
Per a league source, after the person administering the test to Tebow’s group had finished, Tebow made a request that the players bow their heads in prayer before taking the 50-question exam.
Said one of the other players in response: “Shut the f–k up.” Others players in the room then laughed.
Hilarity, thy name is Locker Room.
