GAINESVILLE -- Here's a little taste of my feature story in tomorrow's paper, which basically takes a few shots at Florida's excitable fan base. He'll never do it, but Tim Tebow should scribble a Bible verse from the Book of Revelations into his eye black on Saturday. Reason 1: A fittingly sarcastic backhand for his doubters and those among Florida's fans who think the end is extremely nigh. 2. It's Halloween, of course.
[PICTURED, Tebow will judge the wicked and unfaithful on Halloween!]
"And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every four spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird." (Ibis, we're assuming.)
"And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war."
"His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself."
"And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God."
Feel free to offer your own suggestions for Tebow's Halloween eye black. Quite fun.
