The Real Story (And Explanation) Of Super Bowl XLVIII

Today, this blog's artist-in-residence — Tom Tomorrow (Dan Perkins) — goes into Michelangelo-mode and converts this blog into the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel with a depiction of YHWH (Yahweh), Allah, or God in human form. A quick view of this 'toon solved the mystery of the recent Super Bowl: the Bronco meltdown was caused by "The Curse of Tim Tebow." When the Denver Broncos traded Tim Tebow to the NY Jets, the curse began. The Jets traded Tebow to the New England Patriots and after that didn't work, Tim Tebow was out of professional football. The Denver Broncos were cursed thereafter. Tebo did make it into Super Bowl XLVIII, though: he was featured in a T-Mobile Super Bowl commercial. If this is (fair & balanced) superstition, so be it.
