the good, the bad and the ugly.

I was going to save this post for my bi-weekly posting over at From the Sidelines but I just couldn't hold it in any longer. Plain and simple, last night sucked, big time. The Steelers lost to the Broncos and my worst enemy, Tim Tebow. I brought this on myself I was the first to say last Friday that Tebow will knock my team out of the playoffs and take the Steelers down, it would be just my luck for this to happen. And you know what... it did. GRRRR!

My only mental saving grace is that A) our team wasn't at 100% with our line-up and B) Now I can relax. Sure I wanted my boys to go all the way but let's be realistic, we aren't operating with a full starting line up, we are battered, beaten and would still have to make it through New England AND my best guess would be the Ravens in order to make it to the big game. Yes that is my prediction as much as I hate to see it happen I think the Ravens have a great shot of making it to the Super Bowl this year.

Tim Tebow. Even if I think he's BAD, he's still good. The world's golden boy. There is no denying that Tebow is a good kid. I'm just not a fan, the boy gets under my skin. I can't say anything more positive than that he's a good kid so I'll stop there. [You do realize this is killing me not to go all word vomit about him right?]

Steelers are out of the playoffs and I'm pissed but coping as well as a fan can at this point. As stated above, we could have done better, much better and frankly why the fuck didn't we try for that field goal to win the game? Sure all the odds were stacked against us, and it had never been done before but why on earth would you back down from a chance. Their Fear: Oh the ball might get tipped, the Broncs might run it back for a touch down - well GUESS WHAT... they did that anyway in overtime and we were hung out to dry. I am all about taking chances, and that was one I feel we could have risked. No guts, no glory.

I can't believe I'm going to admit this... but here goes. Last night before the game they were showing pre-game interviews with Tebow [my eyes just rolled as I typed this]. Tebow was discussing his excitement about playing against the Steelers and how he has watched them for the past decade and always admired them. Nice suck up Tebow, very sweet of you. In the process of watching this and trying not to get my eye balls stuck in the back of my head I started to joke with Mike about Tebow's lovely sore on his lip. Be it from a bump at practice, or an actual cold sore I didn't care - I started to bust on him wondering how his virgin ass contracted herpes. Well... I guess the joke was on me... after the loss I sulked... I watched Cleveland Show, Family Guy and American Dad and then went to bed... this morning I went to the bathroom and noticed I had gotten a sore on my lip, a blister if you will, over night. SERIOUSLY!?! I never get cold sores, blisters or anything funky on my lip unless they are overly chapped. I guess this is my payment for busting on one of the flock. Tebow got me back - divine justice for the golden boy. That makes me the "UGLY" for being ugly.

[You know where my heart lies]
via google • SEC, SEC, SEC, SEC

I guess either way this ends, SEC is a clear winner. But for me I will only be pleased if Bama takes the win to give us 14 National Championships.  For the record, I will say that normally LSU is one of my top five favorite SEC teams but tonight they are the enemy!

Now if you will excuse me, I've got to go find a way to hid my nasty lip AND get some things ready for the REAL game of the season! Alabama takes on LSU for the BCS National Championship. All I can say is ROLL MUTHA F'IN TIDE and I hope to end on a high note - after last night I don't know how much more I can take.

LESSON: Don't ever bust on Tebow... you might end up with bad hair, a sore on your lip or worse. He apparently IS the messiah and we should all bow down to him. Yeah, that isn't going to happen.
Pin It!

Ive never followed Tebow when he played for FL (GO DAWGS!) and I dont really follow NFL (only college)..but I DO have to say...at least America has one good (athletic) role model to look up to. I mean, look at all the guys that blow their millions, get tons of random women prego and/or STDs, etc. I hate that you (come across like) have such animosity towards him. No one is perfect, but hey, at least he's trying to be! :)

Tebow is a good guy but there are also plenty of other great players that are stand up guys across the board in the NFL. He isn't the ONLY one and I think more of the good seeds should get some limelight for their behavior as well, instead of just hearing about the bad in the other players.

I don't Tebow either because he's a former Gator. I'm with you. I'll say he's a good kid.

I think it's annoying how Tebow gets all the attention, too, but in a bad way. People are all huffy that he prays, but then they say they're anti-bullying. Seems a little hypocritical to me. Plus, haven't Matt Hasselbeck, Drew Brees, and Peyton Manning all prayed publicly? Why don't they get flack for that? This whole Tebow thing is annoying me like the Kardashians.

Anyway, I'm a Badger fan, but we'll be ROLLING TIDE tonight! LSU is so overrated it's not even funny. Good luck! :D

Ok, I have to admit that I know absolutely NOTHING about football and although I have heard Tebow's name floating around for months, I haven't had the slightest desire to find out who he is or why everybody is talking about him. I think something to do with Jesus???
