I don't know what's more frightening: That someone wrote 314 words about an epic yet unfulfilling Hajj to get his hands on the new Tim Tebow kicks or that I read all 314 words.

I woke up startled at 2:20 to a bunch of IMs about the release ‚ÄĒ I didn't check their time-stamps; I thought they were live. I rushed to the site and refreshed the page ‚ÄĒ no shoe. Then I checked when the IMs were sent... D'oh! After all that, perfectly poised to buy the shoes within 10 seconds they were released...I had slept through it ‚ÄĒ and missed out.

Suffice to say, I was most definitely not asleep the next few hours, tossing and turning over my fumble.


I take solace in the fact that EA Sports had the wherewithal to go Bible verse-less with His photo on NCAA Football '11, even if they don't admit it was a conscious blackout.

Full disclosure: Tim Tebow Makes Me Hate America.


Here's some grainy footage of those lucky enough to get the Tebow cross-trainers.

Fine, that's actually a bunch of Red Star Belgrade Fans doing God knows what.
