Aus der Traum

From the wonderful world of American professional sports, proof again that every day is different if not better. The biggest difference perhaps between today and yesterday is that the career of Tim Tebow who has had a Rake's Progress in the National Football League as a New England Patriot has come to an end.

He woke up yesterday morning still with the team. By mid-afternoon, he was thanking everyone for the opportunity such as it was. When you're trying to make a roaster with a Tom Brady on it, from what I understand of US pro football (which isn't much), it's like being asked to play piano on a Jerry Lee Lewis record. And if you don't know much about rock and roll, that invitation is a suicide mission.

Tebow will start the post-Labor Day work week the way a lot of us have in recent years in this economy, looking for a job. It doesn't make any difference if you're a Republican or a Democrat, there's plenty of blame to go around for the problems we're having so why bother? Blame isn't going to put people back on payrolls.  

I read an article a lot of folks who had careers in the NFL are hitting the bricks this weekend-enough talent was released suggested someone on a sports radio station I accidentally tuned to, to form three more teams. Not necessarily the news a guy like Tim Tebow, or any of the other players without jobs, really wants to hear.
