Gators’ Tim Tebow downgraded to Atari

Tebow’s team, amazingly wearing Gator orange, looks for the big goal line stop.

While Penn State’s idea of using Playstation 3 for their quarterbacks to learn the playbook seems to be working well so far, it appears things haven’t been as smooth down in Florida with the Gators and their new starting QB/bowling ball Tim Tebow.  Urban Meyer and the gang had been using Nintendo’s Tecmo Bowl to ease Tebow into the system, and while seeing some positive results initially, the coaches may have gotten too ambitious as they were left scrambling following a disastrous attempt to upgrade him to Super Tecmo Bowl and it’s eight elaborate plays.

Just yesterday the mess seemed to be temporarily cleaned up when Meyer, attempting to ease the frazzled young man back into it, dusted off his old Atari, popped in their original football game, and lured Tebow into the room with a gigantic banana split.  Tebow reportedly sat down for hours without getting up once, both amazed and enthralled by the game’s stunning simplicity.

Although some may call this a set back since Atari Football is limited to only running left or running right, many feel it’s Tebow’s state of mind and satisfied appetite that is most important entering the season.

    One time my friend played Tim Tebow in Tecmo Bowl and ended up winning in overtime on a cheap field goal.

    The win was shortlived however as Tebow threw my friend into his gigantic turkey, ham, bologna, hot dog, sausage and meatloaf sandwich and ate the thing whole in one bite, thus becoming the true victor.
