It’s one thing to be photographed crying after a game, but it’s quite another to have the tears actually flow down through your eye black Bible verse. How can anyone help but have empathy for Tim Tebow, who watched his Florida team lose its quest for perfection on Saturday to Alabama? Here is Sports by Brooks’ Cartman-like reaction to Tebow’s post-game Tears of Unfathomable Sadness, in Photoshop form. Brooks is a Georgia grad, so making this was a labor of love, I’m sure. The good thing about all of this is perhaps it will end the message-in-eye-black trend for good.
Groucho had the right idea: He wore his eye black above the eyes. Ah, hello Monday. As Groucho once said, “I never forget a face, but in your case I’d be willing to make an exception.”
ABOUT LAST NIGHT …
What you missed while putting up the world’s best Christmas decoration …
* NFL: Lucy pulls back the football just as Charlie Brown attempts to kick a game-clinching field goal for the Redskins.
* NBA: Oden out for season with knee injury. Sad. Seemed inevitable though, didn’t it?
* After further review, Charlie Weis really wishes he hadn’t opened his yap about Pete Carroll’s living arrangements.
