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.

RANT TIME, y'all! > > Escape from New Orleans: OK, so Chris Paul is the new Helen of Troy, apparently. First, David Stern blows up the Lakers trade in an attempt to regain the swag he lost during the lockout, the poor New Orleans GM almost jumps off a bridge, the Lakers move Odom to Dallas for a pizza puff, New Orleans tries to move Paul to the Clippers and the league wants the '92 NBA All-Star team for him since apparently Chris Paul...

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.

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.

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?
