The Lake Elsinore Storm would like to trade for Tim Tebow

Denver Broncos Tebow fumbles after hit by Patriots Ninkovich during the first quarter during their NFL AFC Divisional playoff game in Foxborough

The worst part of being a baseball blogger is that I never get a chance to pile on media frenzies that go down in the other sports. Man, I would have loved to add (virtually nothing) to the Dwight Howard stuff. To the Peyton Manning stuff. To, well, whatever the hell people get all animated about in hockey.  But it’s out of my bailiwick, so I really can’t.

But once in a while, a small opportunity emerges. Like, say, the single-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres issuing a press release stating their desire to trade two mascots for the suddenly out-of-work Tim Tebow:

“We know that Tim was the cause for late-game comebacks in Denver and we have our own leader of rallies, the Rally Cop. We would like to offer the Broncos the Rally Cop as well as the Grounds Crew Gorilla, winner of an MiLB Golden Bobble head last season, in exchange for Tebow,” Storm vice president and general manager Chris Jones said in the announcement.

I’m assuming he’d be a pretty good hitter. He has lots of experience in sending balls to big, open grassy parts of the field where no one can catch it.

    In all the either sly or direct insults i have ever read directed at Tim Tebows lack of accuracy, that one has my vote as the best. Wow that is funny lol.

    Actually Craig, he’s deep passing game was never the issue. His faults lie with bad footwork, poor timing with five and three step drops, and implementing a West Coast offensive scheme (i.e. lots of short, accurate passes). God, you are soooo naive…

    So…would he do his Tebowing after he hits a home run?

    I guess the question now is — can Mark Sanchez hit?

      Now he gets traded to the Feens.

      Brother. The Nyorcan press will be all over Tebow. They already sound like a pack of starved hounds in the alley behind a butcher shop, waiting for Old Klaus to throw his bones out. Watch for Bobby Bonilla to send him a sympathy card after week 3.

    Too late. He’s been traded to the Jets.

    Is toe sucking a passport to hell? A deep-rooted fetish like that might be too much for Tebow’s sort of superficial religiosity, but maybe he’ll at least be able to save his coach’s sole.

    …Sorry about that.

      You make an interesting point. Rex Ryan and Tebow will have some weird chemistry to say the least. I can’t wait for the NY media to take over Tebowmania. Oh this will be fun as a Jets hater and Tebow indifferenter.

    Would it be called te-bagging when he circled the bases?

    • marshmallowsnake - Mar 21, 2012 at 1:21 PM

      Or a tea-bagger if he hits a homer?

  8. hushbrother - Mar 21, 2012 at 2:07 PM

    He’s the only QB I’ve ever seen who throws from a complete wind-up.

    I know what you mean. I kept thinking the first couple weeks of Manning-mania that Rick Manning is way too old to be thinking about playing centerfield in the major leagues again. Heck he is even older than Jamie Moyer.
