Tim Tebow was released from the Denver Broncos, and Peyton Manning was released from the Indianapolis Colts. Both quarterbacks. Manning was just signed to the Broncos yesterday.
The joke is that Tim Tebow is sort of controversial because he’s very forthcoming about him being an evangelical Christian. He did a stance when he prayed to Jesus that a bunch of kids started doing in high school and getting expelled for it. Hence the virgin joke. Peyton Manning has won a ton of superbowls for the Colts, hence the championship joke.
Manning has won one Super Bowl for the Colts, not a ton, and students were not expelled for Tebowing. A couple of kids were suspended when they Tebowed, not expelled, and the suspension was, at least in the case I’m aware of, not because of the act of kneeling known but because the kids organized a group of like 40 students to do it in such a way that it blocked the school’s hallways.
Anyway, no need to worry about ruining the joke by explaining it – it wasn’t very funny in the first place.
I also don’t know why you tried to explain it when you had no idea what the truth was. I have generally operated under the assumption that knowing about something is a prerequisite if one wishes to explain it.
Oh bee you poor guy! We all feel bad for you getting corrected because you wrote something you shouldn’t have to look smart. Everyone let’s not be jerks so he doesn’t sit in his bedroom sweating and crying all night about being incorrect.
