Grab your barf bags; it's gonna' be a long, long week

Perhaps you were clued in by the openly-reminiscent, misty-eyed Verne and Danielson yesterday. Or, perhaps Tracy Wolfson's eye black gave it away. In any event, this is going to be a long, long week filled with over-the-top fauning, maudlin displays of Tebowlove (tm), and ridiculous pronouncements on all things Tebow.

Today, comes the beginning. From Mr. Forde at ESPN

Generosity of Spirit Sets Tebow Apart

He said afterward that he wants the fans to remember him for "how much I cared." The fact is, fans have never cared so much about a player before.

"I've never seen anything like it," Florida coach Urban Meyer said. "… He's made unselfish kind of a cool thing."

None of us has seen anything like it. What makes Tebow unique in the 140-year history of this game is not just his unquenchable spirit. It's his generosity of spirit. (-emphasis, mine)

This is just the first, but by no means the last, awkward mawkish thing written this week.

Instead of the game of the decade, the battle of #1 and #2, the battle of the two best defenses in football, the battle of Heisman finalists, the second matchup of Meyer-Saban, the seventh meeting between Alabama and Florida in the SECCG. the battle for conference supremacy, the national title implications...we are going to be exposed to nitwit human interest stories and disgusting puffery.

Grab the barf bags.
