Tebow Takes To Twitter, Reiterates He’s ‘Excited’ To Play For Jets

Popular Backup QB Pokes Fun At Himself On Social Networking Giant

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — It’s Twitter Time again for Tim Tebow.

In his first tweets since being traded to the Jets last week, the popular backup quarterback wrote Thursday night that he’s, yep, “excited” to be with his new team and thanked Denver Broncos fans for their support after “an interesting couple of weeks!”

Tebow, who retweeted something on March 11, sent out four tweets and poked fun at himself: “I’ve already said it 44 times so here goes number 45: I’m really excited to be a Jet! Haha!”

He used the word “excited” repeatedly during his 30-minute introductory news conference Monday.

Tebow said he’s “anxiously looking forward” to getting to work.

“Fireman Ed and the rest of Jets nation,” he wrote, “I’m gonna play my heart out for you. J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!”

    You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation but I to find this topic to be really something that I feel I might never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very large for me. I’m taking a look ahead on your next post, I will attempt to get the cling of it!

  2. He does not force his believes upon anyone and, to my knowledge, has never done so. It’s a damn shame that one can be asked their opinion and can say most anything in the world but when they respond with something they truly believe in and that happens to be connected with Christianity, they are rediculed mercilessly. It’s a lot like Bob Dylan said, whenever he was living a hellish life, he could talk about sex, drug use, Budha, the Tibetan book of the dead, witchcraft, horoscopes, debauchery of any kind but once he became a Christian, one word about Jesus and he was the subject of abject redicule. If you have even one example of Tebow “shoving the Good Lord” into our lives otherwise, I’d love to hear it. I personally respect anyone who says what they believe in the face of media persecution. It’s a shame so many are threatened by Christianity and its truth. .

  3. When will the press and the public get over their petty, silly, moronic, bafoonish dogging of Tebow. I suggest that whenever sports talk media is contemplating their next vicious attack on Tebow that they ask themselves, “Isthis just “more of the same” of the general disdain for “all things God” and attacks on God and Christians or is this legitimate, intelligent, forward-thinking, genuine sports journalism which moves the sports world conversation forward or is it selaciousness for the sake of hyped-up sensationalized selaciousness. OK, he’s a mediocre QB who has accomplished truly amazing feats of brilliant play 20% of the time and been horrendous about 50% of the time with his genuine mediocre play making up for the other 30% of the time. But, seriously, can we get off his back on the personal aspects of his life and report- positively or negatively- in a legitimate fashion. It’s not like there isn’t enough legitimate sports issues that can be posited about him. C’mon man!!!

      I think it’s the press that has the problem – – not the public.

      If he’d go quietly about his business, and stop shoving “the good Lord” into every comment, I would agree.
