I told my wife that the Denver Broncos traded Tim Tebow to the New York Jets. I wish it had been to the Dallas Cowboys who play in Arlington, and I wish I had recorded her reaction on video. Here is how the dialog went just moments ago.
My wonderful wife immediately asked: “Can they do that?” “Doesn't that hurt Tim Tebow's feelings?”
I laughed out loud, doubting the owners of these teams consider a player's feelings like they consider the big bucks and the bottom line, yet I thought that she might be right. Maybe it did hurt his feelings.
I informed her that they can trade players depending on the contract they are under.
“Well I don't like it!” “I wouldn't wanna be in his position.” “Trading around humans … it's like a chess game … it's like trading something for a new model.”
Or in this case an older model.
“Is Pate Manning a good player?”
Well, they offered him a 5 year contract for $96 million dollars.
“Do you think his girlfriend makes that much – Taylor Swift?”
My mind spins in too many directions for words.
“They make a cute couple ... I hope they get married … Isn't she a Christian?”
Men, women, and football. There is some overlap, but the ends of this Venn Diagram are further apart than we realize.
