Tim Tebow’s brother Peter lives in Denver, loves Jesus (according to his Twitter bio, at least, I don’t know him personally or anything) and has over 15,000 Twitter followers, because every Bill Clinton needs his Roger. When the Broncos went down to the Ravens on Saturday, Peter took to the Tweeter and did a little harmless gloating:
That’s not too bad, right? A little misplaced schadenfreude from a guy with a misguided perspective. “My brother wasn’t good enough to play for your football team! I HOPE YOU LOSE! I also hope every other team also loses, I guess!” etc. Besides, his brother kinda-sorta plays for the Jets. What’s he supposed to do, enjoy victories?
Of course, by Monday the Twitter police was all over him, and Pete was forced to issue an apology for having football opinions:
I left in the first response, because hahahahaha. I can just picture Jesus now, up in Heaven on his computer, typing out “YEAH DON’T LISTEN TO THEM PETER, BEING PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVELY VINDICTIVE VIA FOOTBALL RESULTS IS WHAT I WAS GOING FOR WHEN I DID THE WHOLE ‘DYING FOR YOUR SINS’ THING. CALL RAY LEWIS A MURDERER NEXT WEEK.”
I think the narrative would’ve been better if Peter had gloated about the Broncos loss but refused to explain why. Then we could’ve went full Jesus Christ Superstar on him.
No matter what happens, I’m going to stop listening to Howie Long and get all of my football updates from Mary Magdalene. She seems like she knows what’s going on.
