Denver, CO. A day after his Denver Broncos were defeated 41-23 at Sports Authority Field in Denver, starting quarterback Tim Tebow, long known for his frequent sideline prayers, announced that he was renouncing Christianity. "I'm done with Him", a dejected Tebow told a Denver sports columnist during a locker-room interview at the Bronco's practice facility. "Everything that I've done was for the Lord, and how does He repay me? He sends His angels to speed the feet of the gosh darn, excuse me, Patriots' linebackers, and I spent half the afternoon on my back. No more!"
"I feel like Salieri, do you know what I mean?" Tebow stated, referring to the Austrian classical composer who was a contemporary and rival of Mozart. Impersonating F. Murray Abraham's Oscar-winning portrayal of the jealous court composer, Tebow continued: "From now on we are enemies, You and I. Because You choose for Your instrument a boastful, lustful, smutty, infantile boy--yeah, I'm talking about Brady--and give me for reward only the ability to recognize the incarnation. Because You are unjust, unfair, unkind, I will block You, I swear it. I will hinder and harm Your creature on earth as far as I am able."
"But it's not just Brady" sniffed the former collegiate star for the Florida Gators. "It's Favre. It's McMahon. It's Namath. Football is the greatest sport that the Heavenly Father invented, but who does He choose to be its heroes? Womanizers. Drunks. Partiers. My brother Aaron Rodgers is far too humble to tell you this, but despite leading the Packers to a 13-1 record, all he hears anywhere in the whole state of Wisconsin is Brett this, Brett that. I mean, Brett Favre went and played a season for the Minnesota Vikings. Lucifer's team. Aaron is a good man, and this is how the Lord treats him?"
"I'm done with God."
Immediately after the interview, Tebow reportedly sacrificed a small goat in the locker room's Jacuzzi. While team officials refused to comment on the incident, Tebow was suspended for Saturday's game against the Buffalo Bills for an unspecified violation of team rules.
