Leave it to the brilliant comic minds at Saturday Night Live to hit the Tim Tebow-shaped nail on the head.
The folks at NBC finally took their shots at the Denver Broncos quarterback. In the skit, Tebow, played by Taran Killam, is visited by his favorite homeboy, played by Jason Sudeikis, after the Broncos' miraculous 13-10 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 14.
Sudeikis goes on to reveal what bleary-eyed NFL fans have been thinking all along—that Denver's fourth-quarter success has been the product of divine intervention.
And that Tebow needs to spend more time stretching and learning the team's playbook.
Tebow comes off like a giddy schoolgirl, excited and infatuated by his unexpected visitor, who advises him and his teammates that they'd be better served playing all four quarters and singing the praises of kicker Matt Prater.
Of course, Tebow's pal gives the Broncos a few pointers about the New England Patriots, their Week 15 opponent, before he leaves to officiate a beauty pageant. He jokes that Tom Brady also has divine powers and warns of Bill Belichick's seedy connection to the underworld.
Big props to the folks at SNL for their hilarious spin on Denver's six-game winning streak. I can only wonder what they'll have to say when the 12th man on high steps in to lend Tebow a helping hand against a quality opponent like the Pats.
