TEBOW: Guess he wasn’t touched by an angel

The Denver Broncos’ convincing and lopsided 45-10 loss to New England’s rambunctious “Brady Bunch” should convince the religiously zealous and cult-like sports fans of Tim Tebow that he does not have supernatural aid or sprinkling of some magical fairy dust to account for the team’s last-minute gridiron victories.

Rather, it is more like having a hot streak at the casino tables in Reno; sooner or later the wild and fun ride ends, and the universe is in balance once more.

What makes this loss even more of a statement against divine complicity is that the Patriots are the NFL’s 31st ranked defense, but somehow they managed to sack Tebow five times.

As a suggestion, perhaps all prayers should be confined to the locker room, worship center or family dwelling instead of on the field. And any “Touched by an Angel” duties should be left to real players like actors Della Reese and Roma Downey.
