Tim Tebow to The DevilStay the Hell Away fromMonday Night Football (666 game)
tmz ^ | 10/8 | tmz

Posted on 10/08/2012 1:10:07 PM PDT by RummyChick

Tim Tebow just pointed out a very devilish fact ... tonight's NFL matchup is the 666th Monday Night Football game ... and it just so happens, Tim's team is playing in the game.

As the NY Jets prepare for battle with the Houston Texans ... Tebow just tweeted, "Looking forward to giving God all the glory in tonight's 666th Monday Night Football game. Romans 8:37-39."

Before you head to Google, here's the bible quote Tim referenced:

"No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, [a] 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 that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

We called The Devil for comment ... but he was too busy preparing for TMZ Live.

It’s a cruel joke for the NFL to schedule Tim’s Jets to play in the 666th MNF game. But, as usual Tim turns the table on the sinister secular MSM.

Expect Tim to finally be freed from his damnation of being a second string QB in the most decadant city in the NFL and start the game.

He will show them his talent as the greatest QB in NFL history by throwing for 667 yards and throwing for 6 touchdowns against the Texans.

He might have a better starting record in Denver than the other guy starting there now.

Ha! Would love to see Tebow throw for a bunch, win a lot, and finally rid the NFL of making us think Sanchez is any good. Sanchez and Matt Leinhert have failed miserably so far as USC stud QB’s. They did get some nice looking chicks I bet out of the starting QB thing but that’s about it.

I doubt anybody even realized it was, especially given how many “special presentation” non-Monday MNF games they have, I wonder if it’s even really the 666th.

So far this season he only has one pass attempt, I don’t think he’s even had 6 plays in one game. And even if they put him in, the rest of the team stinks. He’ll have nobody to throw to, no running game to relieve pass pressure, and the defense will keep him on the sideline for 40 minutes. The Jets are bad.

I have a feeling that his tweet will be picked up by the liberal media as an occasion to engage in cheap snide bigotry against fundamentalist Christians, completely missing the very real probability that the guy has a sense of humor and was making something that used to be called a “joke”. God forbid.

Yup I knew the number was bogus:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monday_Night_Football

“After 43 years, there now have been a total of 730 games televised by the Monday Night Football franchise.”

I suppose there’s a slim chance it’s the 666th time it’s on Monday, but even that seem unlikely. Probably somebody just made it up.

They only played 14 games a season between 1970, when MNF started, and 1978 when they started playing 16 games.

I only count 661 games.

So depending on if that “as of” is before or after the double header aired on Sept 10th. If it’s after this would be 665, if it’s before this is 667. And of course further down they say we’re at 730. One way or the other the math don’t work. 666 is next week, last week, or years ago. And really even if it was tonight do we really think the league had nothing better to do with scheduling than stick Tebow on the 666th, really. Having Drew Brees break the consecutive TDs streak on prime time sure, there’s good rating for that, Tebowing the 666th isn’t going to draw any extra fans.

The Jets certainly need to pick one or the other and stick with him for a few games. This back and forth thing they are doing makes no sense - it should have been sorted out in camp.

Then there’s pre-season monday night. Then there’s the season opener that on Thursday that used to be on ABC and was credited as MNF on Thursday. And they used to show playoffs which were MNF on Saturday. And the last few years the opening is a double header. Yeah, this math gets hairy fast.

Well see, Monday Night Football has been aired on Saturdays also. And even on Special Thursday airings.

So the 730 number I imagine includes Playoff games and Special Airings of games (Like Season Opening games that have aired on Thursdays etc.) And as far as the Double Headers well it depends if you count that as one program or two.

They’re saying it’s the 666th game, so double headers are 2.

This all shows why we should save the counting for the accountants.

See the problem is you have closed out the possibility that its a legitimate 666th something. Like did you consider its the 666th Monday MNF has aired NFL football on a Monday Night?

I used to read a lot of Robert Anton Wilson, which of course means spending time spotting the “rule of 5” and the “mystic number 23”. So yeah, I figure there’s some way tonight is the 666th something somehow, much like last week, and next week, and next year’s season opener. Once you get in practice on this everything fits into whatever number you want.

I forgot about the double headers that began in 2006 best I can figure, that would make this game 668.

But my math could be off.

Did they still call it Monday Night Football if it was shown on Thursday night? I don’t remember.

I think it might have been shown on Saturday night if Christmas fell on a Monday. (This hasn’t happened too often...the season and playoffs used to be shorter).

I don’t recall when the Thursday night package started and then was sold separately either.

Yeah, Al Michaels liked to poke fun at it. Because MNF is the brand, so when a game is under that contract with that broadcast team it’s MNF no matter when the game is.

The Saturday MNFs were all playoffs, the contract included a wild card playoff game, which was always the 2nd game (Saturday prime time).

The current Thursday package is like 8 years old, maybe 9. There was another one in the late 80s that split games between TNT and ESPN, but you gotta be really old to remember that.

Will Arian Foster score 2 TDs to preserve my undefeated fantasy football record?”

If I could guarantee the answer to that kind of a question I sure wouldn’t be sitting here working on my computer for endless hours trying to keep my business afloat. OTOH, if we must lose a game, I would rather it would be one where Tebow was the winning QB than any other. I really wish he could go somewhere where he would be appreciated and his talents developed.

To all the people trying to count up the number of Monday Night games, remember that there was no Monday Night game the week after 9/11 and some games were canceled in 1982 because of a players strike.

You were only 667 passing yards and 6 touchdowns off the mark. Better luck next time.

You know we watched that NFL football game with our Congregation and we were all praying for Tim Tebow. But, Tim’s efforts to win the game and throw for all those touchdowns were stopped by that Rex Ryan fellow.

Brother Jed with his acute insightful perception found that Rex Ryan must be possessed by Satanic forces as throughout the game kept on using the F Word!

So, Brother Jed gathered some of us male church elders to gather around the TV set to attempt to cast those Evil F Word yelling forces out of Rex Ryan.

Once those forces were gone, we hoped that Mr. Ryan would see the light and put Tim Tebow in the game.

Led by Brother Jed we yelled at the TV trying to force the F Word out of Rex Ryan! But, the more we yelled and the women prayed for Rex Ryan, the more he would yell the F Word! He even yelled the F Word in front of Tim Tebow!

“Hey you F Word forces! You must cast away from Rex Ryan!”

And when those evil forces did momentarily let go of Rex Ryan, he put Tim Tebow in the game and Tim threw that long pass that was knocked out of the Receiver’s hands by that big mean man in the dark Houston Texan uniform.

We were hoping that the Texans would let Tim’s Chosen Receiver catch that ball and let him run down the field to score a Glorious Touchdown!

Instead, all that did was to cause the Possessed Rex Ryan to use the F Word again and again!

I’m just still in shock about the Tebow game and if Rex Ryan could for one moment stop screaming that nasty F Word, just maybe he would see the light and let Tim Tenow throw the ball for touchdowns or run the ball in for a touchdown!

Maybe if the big mean men on the opposing teams defense would not be so rough with him and not throw him to the ground on every play, Tim would score all the touchdowns.

Rex Ryan’s Potty Mouth can only hurt Tim.

Every time they showed him on the TV during that game he was screaming that nasty word!

Seriously doubt it. Denver's schedule has been killer so far this year. Broncs are right where I expected them to be.

BTW, I am a lifelong Broncos fan. I admire Tebow, but am very glad to have Manning lining up behind center.
