Subject: Tebow Jokes!

From: Costaki Economopoulos

Hey Kids,

I have a regular joke-driven all NFL radio segment called “Quick Snaps.”
Would LOVE to talk to you guys about writing for the site.
Perhaps a once weekly feature with several topical NFL jokes?

This week it was a PLEASURE to be a football joke writer.
Highlights below.

Let’s discuss!


Tebow’s headed to the Big Apple. I’m not a biblical scholar, but a Christian around an apple? Sounds like trouble to me.

Welcome to New York. Where 3:16 is the ratio of city blocks that smell like urine.

New York already has players with questionable talent who pray for wins. They’re called the Mets.

Tebow insists that he and starting QB Mark Sanchez have a great relationship. Yeah, well, that’s what the Clintons say too.

I looked it up. “Sanchez” is a Spanish word for “Orton.”

Hello Sir or Madam,

A couple paragraphs (crabs) about me.

Why I would be good fit?
Because you’re a square hole, and I’m a square peg. #Geometry

Not interested yet? Well I’ll let you pay me a low price of $15 a hour. Deal?
