After beating up Charleston Southern, now the “greatest ever.”

September 9, 2009

I know it’s typically easy to exaggerate just a tad on how ridiculous the obsession over Saint Timothy is… but no exaggeration is needed here.

Why are we documenting every detail of this meaningless 62-3 blowout? For posterity, that’s why. It didn’t matter that Florida was playing I-AA Charleston Southern on Saturday. When you’re watching history being made, you want to record it for future generations, right?

And make no mistake about it, there’s a very good chance we are watching college football history unfold. We are watching arguably the greatest player in the 140-year history of the game quarterbacking his final season.

To college football fans, this is like watching the Beatles’ last concert at Candlestick Park in ’66. It’s like seeing Lou Gehrig saying farewell to Yankee Stadium with his famous words, “I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth.”

This is a season when college football fans should consider themselves the luckiest people on the face of the earth.

How many times do we get a chance to watch the greatest who ever played a sport? None of us got a chance to watch Babe Ruth. Many are too young to remember Muhammad Ali or Jim Brown.

Luckily, we did get to see Michael Jordan.

And now Tebow.

I was going to write something witty and incredulous here, but frankly I don’t anything needs to be said… the joke writes itself. Gaytors have now jumped from comparing Tebow to Herschel Walker and O.J. Simpson… to Lou Gehrig, Muhammed Ali, Babe Ruth, Jim Brown and Michael Jordan. We’ve made the jump from comparisons to great college athletes, to historical professional icons.

If only Timmy could make the jump from college sports to professional sports himself.
