Tim Tebow has big plans for 666th Monday Night football game
3:53PM EST October 8. 2012 - "This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666."
-- Revelation 13:18, English Standard Bible
And so it was that on the morn of the 666th Monday Night Football game in the course of mankind, Timothy Richard Tebow noticed this numerical oddity and took to the mount to declare his righteousness against the mark of the beast.
On the second Monday of October, Tebow took a respite from reading his papyrus playbook to declare his intentions for the eve: "Looking forward to giving God all the glory in tonight's 666th Monday Night Football game. Romans 8:37-39."
I'm down with Tebow's religious beliefs and appreciate that he uses his forum to promote them, but I'm not sure what he was going for here. Does playing in a game number that's identical to the mark of the beast worry him? Or is anything with the number 666 a good way to promote his faith?
The Bible verse Tebow references in the tweet says: "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God."

Is it wrong that I hope he gets injured? Seriously, the main problem with this country is that people believe in God, The Devil and Demons.

What should worry his ass is that his 0-4 team is playing a 4-0 playoff contender, and should he go in for Mark Sanchez, he'll have this to deal with.

666 was actually a reference to the Roman Emperor Nero, it had nothing to do with the devil.

Yes, because all the Fundies will then be spouting 666 garbage about why he got injured. Let your hope focus on another time.

Thanks to the discovery of a translation error, we now know the number of the beast is actually 616, not 666:

He needs divine intervention if his team is to beat the red hot Texans...

The obsession with Biblical literalism is absurd. There is so much contradictory information in the Bible and these folks are just as guilty as anyone else when they simply pick and choose the things that suit a predetermined political agenda.

He was homeschooled by a Fundie mother and everything taught him was given a link to some Bible baloney. The doofus doesn't know anything else. OTOH, by this time, he's been out and about enough to realize that he's a closet case.

666th Monday Night football game? Methinks TT would be dee-lighted if ABC/NFL surprised him with a halftime show featuring Dave Annabel, Rachel Taylor and Vanessa Williams.

Hmm. He should have prayed harder -- they lost. Again.

Did he get to play in the game?

He has become a tiresome bore with this Jesus stuff. We get it Tim, you are a Christian, good for you. Do you need to constantly announce it?

you do if you're secretly gay and desperately trying to keep that a secret....

Did his mother move to New York to continue running his life?

Did he play in Monday night's game or just watch from the bench?

Maybe his mother wouldn't let him play last Monday.
