Looks like the quarterback competition prayer-off between Josh McCown and John Beck has taken an interesting turn. A Texas TV station is reporting that McCown has injured his throwing hand in a wood cutting incident. Actually, he almost lost a finger. Thaaaaat's right.
McCown needed six stitches to the index finger on his right hand a couple of weeks ago when he was injured while he and his brother, Luke, were cutting firewood. Josh McCown told Tyler television station KETK that he was holding the firewood and his brother, a backup quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, made the mistake of cutting his finger instead of the firewood.
I've been saying all along that the QB job was going to come down to who prayed the hardest between these two. Looks like today, the advantage goes to Beck. Mormons are a mysterious bunch, what with their magical underwear and their blockbuster sequel to The Bible. Plus they have Donnie Osmond, so right there one should know not to fuck with a Mormon.
But, to be fair, I think Jesus hasn't been sure which way to go with this. Both Beck and McCown have been pretty devout. But then someone goes and does something somewhat imprudent like holding firewood while someone else tries to chop it.
So it's now clear that Jesus doesn't necessarily side with the pious but, rather, will take sides against the fucktard.
