Are you there, God? It's me, Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow is the talk of the NFL and pretty much the entire world. Hes apparently a super nice guy and he and Jesus hang out on Sundays to play checkers and talk about how to help the poor.

He is also a very, very mediocre quarterback who is getting 110 of the credit for a team that is being carried by an improved defense and running game. But, hey, he is super nice so who cares! Right?!

This is the story about how a very religious but awful quarterback got all the credit for a running game and defense that kept bailing him out and how he finally got his wish and came face to face with a god.

Tebow was the toast of Denver and gave the people hope that they could get to the playoffs as he kept making miraculous fourth quarter come backs. Well, the media would have you believe it was all him even though he wasnt winning games for Denver, but rather just doing well enough not to lose them.His teammates grew weary of all the praise for Tebow, but what could they do? He was apparently The Chosen One and their dreams of pummeling him could not come to fruition.According to football experts, fans, and anyone with a Pabst Blue Ribbon in their hand, Tim Tebow was sent from heaven to save the Broncos and could do no wrong.But this past Sunday the evil, diabolical Patriots came to town. No problem for the Miracle Man, right? After all, Tebows priest said god was actively interfering in Broncos games to help Tebow win. Still, Tebow felt compelled to ask for one last favor.A simple request. And according to Tebows priest this was as good as done. On Sunday around 4:15 in Denver, Tebows prayers were answered and god did descend from the heavens to answer his prayers.Tebow quickly realized that the old phrase be careful what you wish for could not be more true.God came down to visit Tebow that day but he wasnt on Tebows side. He crushed the hopes of Tebow and the city of Denver, forcing Tebow to try to win a game with his arm.Tebow and the Broncos were battered and bruised as Tom Brady put on a god-like performance and showed them all what a real quarterback is.Tebow looked to the sky for help, but no helping was coming. Nothing could save Tebow and the Broncos from the Patriots machine. God did visit Tebow that day and he brought his wrath down upon the sinners in Denver.A shocked and shaken Tebow cursed the heavens as Tom Brady smiled.As Brady ascended back to his home after the convincing victory he had a few final words for the supposed Miracle Man

Andrew Hawkins celebrates joining Patriots with 'Ballers' spoof

Andrew Hawkins celebrates joining Patriots with 'Ballers' spoof

Andrew Hawkins' situation isn't far off from a character in HBO's "Ballers." And he played into those connections with a video on Twitter.

The slot receiver, who signed with the Patriots on Wednesday, shares some similarities with the fictional football player Rickey Jerret, a veteran receiver who wades through interest from a number of teams, including New England, during free agency. Because of those similarities, Hawkins spoofed on a scene from "Ballers" where Jerret works out with Patriots receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. Hawkins imposes his face over Jerret's.

Coyotes hire Craig Cunningham as scout

Coyotes hire Craig Cunningham as scout

The Coyotes have hired former player Craig Cunningham as a pro scout, keeping the 26-year-old in hockey after a cardiac episode ended his playing career this season. 

Drafted by the Bruins in the fourth round of the 2010 draft, Cunningham played 34 games for Boston over parts of two seasons before he was waived and claimed by Arizona. He totaled 19 games for the Coyotes, but served as captain of the Tucson Roadrunners, the team’s AHL affiliate. 

Cunningham was hospitalized after he collapsed during pregame warmups on Nov. 19. He was kept alive by continual CPR, but had his lower left leg amputated the next months due to an infection from the episode. 

Known as a high-character player who was popular with his teammates, Cunningham’s transition to scouting lets him further his career after a scary break. 

"I'm very excited to begin the next chapter of my life with the Coyotes," Cunningham said in a statement released by the team. "I'm very grateful to John Chayka, Dave Tippett, the Coyotes and Roadrunners organizations, and all of the great fans across Arizona for the incredible support I've received over the past year. I'm looking forward to helping the Coyotes and I can't wait to get started in my new role."

Said Chayka, the team’s general manager: ”We're thrilled to have Craig join our hockey operations department as a pro scout. Craig was a smart, hard-working player with an incredible passion for the game. We're confident that he will bring those same qualities to the Coyotes in his new role and that he will be an invaluable asset to our organization. We look forward to Craig helping us in several areas and are excited that he is staying with the club."
