Jesus may have turned water into wine, but the N.Y. Jets' Tim Tebow has managed to perform another kind of modern-day miracle by turning his faith into fame and fortune. How else do you explain the fact that one of the most talked about players in all of sports is a gimmick backup quarterback who moonlights as the guy who protects the left side of the punter? Never before has an NFL playbook combined with what some view as life's ultimate playbook to create an almost untamable marketing monster out of a guy who is, at best, mediocre at the quarterback position he was drafted to play.

It's the holiday season once again, and what kind of self-centered goon would I be if I didn't get you fine folks the gift of a rapid-fire touch-em-all column? (Note, after this year we'll have to change that phrase.) > > Firing time and the lying's sleazy: From UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel getting canned a full week before the first Pac-12 championship game (and still coaching it) to the complete farce of the Urban Meyer saga, it's that time of year where college football teams eliminate their coaches and bring in a set of fresh faces.

We said we'd never forget. We repeated it over and over every Sunday for weeks, years, decades even. We still say it as often as we can: "We'll never forget. " But the truth is, some of us HAVE forgotten. How else can we explain letting Tim Tebow slip through our fingers? We forgot. You may not know what I'm talking about, so let me refresh your memory about the lyrics to "Bear Down Chicago Bears," specifically the line: "We'll never forget the way you thrilled the nation with your T formation.

Count me as a guy seriously bummed about Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos' ignominious exit from this year's NFL playoffs, but not for any football reason (although my opinion of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady shares a lot in common with how I view the pus-like fluid that accumulates in the chaffing fat rolls of hippopotamuses). No, I love Tebow and want him to succeed because he is one of those big, bold, brash, larger-than-life public figures who demonstrates so perfectly the utter vapidity and silliness of religion.

Is it just me or is anyone else sick of all the lame "Tebowing" photos in pop culture? The media's infatuation with Tim Tebow has reached a sick level. What's puzzling is whenever the Broncos lose, Tebow's not a story anymore. But whenever the Broncos win, it's "Hallelujah, it's another miracle!" You would think Tebow is undefeated the way the media covers him. Oh, but wait, there's more! Did you hear he threw for 316 yards Sunday? Like, John 3:16! Good heavens. He also turned water into Gatorade and was drafted No. 1 on God's fantasy football team.

If planking didn't excite you. Or owling, or Batman-ing or Tebowing, along came Peebowing this week, thanks to San Diego kicker Nick Novak caught on camera urinating on the sidelines Sunday. Well, it's high time we have a "----ing" craze based on a Chicago athlete. Why let Tim Tebow and Novak have all the fun. Here are some Windy City sports figures that could inspire us to strike a pose.   Cutlering THE POSE: Take a knee. WHY: Because the Bears quarterback has proposed to Kristin Cavallari twice and often takes a...

So many superlatives have been heaped on Denver quarterback Tim Tebow that he seems almost godlike. He certainly finds ways to win - often in thrilling fashion. As for the Bears, well, they needed a victory Sunday by any means possible. Yet they did not get their wish, and now their playoff hopes might need divine intervention. Here's who looked heavenly and who was hellish against the Broncos.   FIRST QUARTER Heavenly: Charles Tillman made a leaping - and dare we say, miraculous?

The myth of The Winner is a powerful one in sports. Just ask Tim Tebow, who might be the worst passer in the NFL, yet somehow the most popular. After last week's "Miracle in Miami" you could have renamed Twitter "Tebwitter" after all the talk about the Broncos' improbable comeback. So how could a kid with a goofy delivery inspire people to buy Tebow billboards or start a hilarious new internet meme called Tebowing ( tebowing.com )? Part of it is Tebow's aw-shucks, nice guy persona, but a lot of it has to do the way we rationalize things that aren't easily digested.
