When you think Jesus Christ resurrecting from the dead, does your mind not also immediately go to Babe Ruth, Wayne Gretzky and the New York Jets?
“What we are talking about is the greatest trade in the history of the world. There have been some really big trades. The Red Sox traded Babe Ruth [to the Yankees] for $100,000. How’s that for a trade? Wayne Gretzky was traded for a couple of scrubs. How that for a trade? I got traded to the Jets. How’s that for a trade? That didn’t work out for anybody. When’s the last time a Jets trade worked out?"
I actually love the move of disguising the tactic of Tebow mentioning himself in the same breath as Ruth and Gretzky as self-deprecating humor. What you hear is him making a joke about himself, but what your brain registers is "Ruth, Gretzky, Tebow." It's genius.
And truthfully, when you look at this electric highlight tape, it makes sense.
A true New York Jets legend. But in all seriousness, anyone who can transition from his one-year stint with the Jets into the story of the salvation of Jesus Christ probably has a better calling as a preacher than a quarterback.
Maybe that will be Tebow's next venture after completing his journey through the New York Mets' minor league system.
