Tim Tebow Scares New England Into Bringing Out Their Witches

Tim TebowWe're down to just over 24 hours until Tim Tebow attempts to prove he's not a one-hit wonder beat Tom Brady in the "who's the better quarterback game." And Tebow fans will be relieved to hear the latest news out of Foxborough gives the Denver Broncos quarterback the edge. It seems the New England Patriots have gotten really desperate.

Bostonians are actually admitting -- at least the Boston Herald is publicizing -- an actual bewitching of the AFC Divisional Playoff game by a local coven. The witches won't be hexing the Jesus-loving opponent, but they plan to give Brady and the Pats an edge over the competition. If you haven't already started laughing at the pure ridiculousness, wait! There's more!


The way the witches behind the 10-minute ceremony at Crow Haven Corner tell it, they were successful with a spiritual intervention for Charlie Sheen last year, so why couldn't they take on the quarterback who shut down the 2011 AFC Champions Steelers last weekend?

Ahem ... successful? Really? They do know the guy lost his job to Ashton Kutcher, right? And casting for Sheen's new show, Anger Management, has been a wee bit challenged by the fact that everyone thinks he's bonkers? Yup, these sorceresses are definitely the ones to jump on the tracks and stop the Tim Tebow train. Uh huh.

In case you didn't notice, that was sarcasm. Which is about all I can muster for the lunacy of counting on the chant "Tom Brady will see what he needs to see, be where he needs to be, and will take the Patriots to another victory" to make Tim Tebow cry uncle. Don't these people understand? He's got a much higher power on his side, and I don't mean his propensity for praying to Jesus Christ. Tim Tebow has got his confidence back. And that's no hocus pocus.

Are you hoping Tim Tebow works some magic in Massachusetts this weekend?
