In a recent press release by the Vatican, American football star Tim Tebow has been named the ‘second coming of Christ.’
There has been much talk in the news and on social media sites that God is helping Mr. Tebow win games after he had 316 passing yards in a single game.
Pope Benedict is currently in Somalia for a tour of Africa extending to the next two weeks.
“The Catholic Church has always been a big supporter of the NFL. We have a lot more in common than most people think. We keep people indoors on Sundays; We go on longer than we have any right to; A lot of people only care once a year; We incite near-xenophobic levels of competitiveness towards our neighbors; and we always have at least one Hail Mary. In hindsight, we should have been looking to football for a savior for ages now. Just look what it did for the beer and guacamole industries.”
