Seems like just June 19, 2013 that I was congratulating Tim Tebow for signing with the New England Patriots.
Happy as I was for the kid, I did wonder what would happen if the Pats didn't keep him on the roster. In fact, I even came up with 10 jobs that he could pursue if the whole football thing didn't work out for him, like ChristianMingle.com spokesperson, president of the International Vest Wearers Association, shirtless rubber bracelet model and Tim Tebow look-alike.
Now that Coach Bill Bellichick has given him the old heave-Hoseah, Tebow's days in the NFL may be numbered. Fortunately, he's is already a man in motion.
According to a recent article on jacksonville.com, Tebow is backing several PDQ restaurants in Jacksonville, which are set to begin construction in the near future.
Never having been to one of the fast-casual chicken chain restaurants, I can't say for sure what will be on the menu, but I do have some suggestions for what the now-Tebow-financed eateries might offer.
- Breakfast: Pro-Life Cereal (no Denver omelets)
- Appetizer: Tebowings, served plain—with no sauce whatsoever (no New England clam chowder)
- Entrées: eye-blackened chicken, Heismanwiches, Timmychangas in unspicy variety only (no items served New York-style including pizza, pastrami, bagels or cheesecake)
- Beverages: cherry pop, Mountain Didn't (generic Mountain Dew), virgin dacquiris and John Boat 3:16 (non-alcoholic version of Intuition Ale Works' Jon Boat)
And if PDQ doesn't succeed, he can always open an In-N-Out-N-In-N-Out-N-In-N-Out Burger.
UPDATE: September 3, 2012, 1:56 p.m.
I think all guests should be seated by Tim who will serve as maître T'bow. They should add bottled holy water to their beverage selection. And Chris Shriver thinks there should be no seats in the restaurant ... only benches.
