THIS HAPPENED. This was one of the stories on the ESPN.com front page as of 3:00PM today. The link to the story read, "Tough guy Chuck Norris sees himself in Tebow." This is the type of story that Skip Bayless thinks should be the biggest in the world and EVERYONE SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW, which is the exact reason why it is not a story. I think that's a good barometer. A sports story's importance is inversely proportional to how much Skip Bayless cares about it. Let's take this stoolmonster line by line.
When Chuck Norris watches Tim Tebow, he sees a version of himself on the football field. As such, the ultimate tough guy has come to the defense of the beleaguered quarterback in an online column.
Since when is Chuck Norris "the ultimate tough guy" in the world? Because there was a running joke about Chuck Norris Facts in like 2004? I liked those jokes. They were funny. Chuck Norris doesn't sleep, he waits. That's funny. It's funny because Chuck Norris is just that guy from Walker, Texas Ranger. He's not someone who people actually think is super badass. Like if these jokes were about Muhammad Ali or something, they'd still be kinda funny, but not as funny as they are when it's Chuck Norris, because Chuck Norris is just a random fuckin' guy who was on a goofy TV show 20 years ago. Hey ESPN: Irony is a thing.
