Adrian Gonzalez has picked his team for this Sunday’s showdown between Bill Belichick’s boys and the Broncos.
“I’m actually rooting for the Patriots because the Broncos need to lose three in a row and the Chargers need to win three in a row to get into the playoffs,” said the San Diego native, and Red Sox first baseman. “I’m rooting for [Tim] Tebow to have a great game, but the Chargers need some help.”
Truth be told, it’s rare for Gonzalez to root for the Patriots. But it’s not rare for him to cheer for Tebow.
“I always keep track of how he’s doing,” said Gonzalez via phone. “I think everything that’s going on, if you just turn on TV or sports radio, he’s being talked about, which is great. I followed him in college, also. Personally, I’m the type of person who prefers to watch a Tom Brady-type of game, but Tebow is a guy I’m always going to follow and wish the best for him and pray he continues to do well and stay healthy.”
...Gonzalez has never met Tebow, although the quarterback did visit the Sox’ first baseman’s church in San Diego recently. Still, Gonzalez still feels a kinship to his football-playing counterpart. Both are living what can be a challenging existence—Christians in the middle of a professional sports environment.
Praise be Fadda Barnald.
