Analysis: Tim Tebow vs. My Mom

Let's break it down:

(You can vote over there, by the way ------->)

While Tim Tebow has excellent mobility, and a growing grasp of NFL offensive schemes, this is counter-balanced by the fact that my mom used to be our lunch lady at school.  

My mom has never struggled against the Patriots.  

My mom has not won any Heisman trophys.  Tim Tebow has.  So there's that.  But Tim cannot make homemade french fries like my mom, to my knowledge.  

Tim does a remarkable job of taking broken plays - when things don't go right, people don't do what they should, according to plan -  and making something out of them.  But, based on observation of the years she spent as a single mom, raising my brother and me through high school, so does my mom.

Tim Tebow prays a lot.  So does my mom (See "single mom with two high school boys"...)

Tim Tebow is helping pay for a CURE hospital for the poor in the Philippines.  That's pretty awesome.  My mom never wanted me to go to CURE's hospital in Afghanistan, but she put up with it, for CURE's sake.  So they're kinda on the same team, there.

Tim Tebow responds beautifully and gracefully to public criticism.  And runs a 4.5 40-yard dash.  My mom is slower, except for that one time she saw my brother and me swimming around, for the fun of it, in a drainage ditch. She has an explosive first step.

Tie-Breaker:

My mom hand-makes awesome puppets.  Tim Tebow?  ZERO PUPPETS.

Bracket of Awesomeness

 

Here it is:  The Bracket of Awesomeness!  We took stuff listeners nominated, and had to whittle it down to 16.  Curious what you think will win.  I'm obviously, pulling for my mom.  Or toast. I do see Thin Mints as a threat, and, obviously, am also greatly threatened, as always, by David Crowder's Beard.  But YOU will determine the champ.  Voting starts Monday.
