Can I call you Timmy? Timmy, I want to start out by saying that this isn’t an easy letter for me to write in the least. You’re a great guy. How could anyone not like you? You have done nothing but work hard, give back to the community and inspire Christians across the nation. Seriously, you are almost too good to be true. I sort of feel unworthy of your perfectness sometimes. I mean I really like beer. And I’m not denying that we had some good times together. I don’t think I knew what happiness was until the night that you helped the Broncos defeat the Steelers.
When you came into my life two years ago, I had high hopes that you were going to be the next John Elway. I was already planning on becoming a regular at the restaurant you would open in 20 years in Cherry Creek. I can still picture it, “Tebow’s: A nice place for nice people”. I was going to buy cars at the Tebow car dealership. My kids were going to go to the Tim Tebow Christian Schools for Kids That Read Good. I applied for a TBOW15 vanity plate. I had no reason to not believe in a bright future for the two of us.
However, sometimes life doesn’t work out how you plan for it. Something can look absolutely perfect on paper and not work in real life. You were a college superstar and the Broncos were a team that was down on its luck. This should have been a match made in heaven. But if the Steelers game was the moment that I knew happiness, the Patriots game was the moment I knew it was over for us. Timmy, I think we are just in two very different places, and I’m not sure that either of us is a good match for each other.
Before we get more anymore invested in this situation, I think the best thing for us to do is just end things now. Let’s walk away from the past few years with fond memories. I’m moving on because it’s necessary, not because I don’t think you’re a great person. I want you to move on too and not look back. Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened. You deserve the best Timmy, and if it’s not going to be with me, then I hope you find someone else that deserves you.
Nobody will ever wear the 15 like you did.
