Building on the success of his Easter sermon to 15,000 folks in Texas, football superstar Tebow has made a firm decision to switch careers.

"Being a full-time preacher will mean I won't have the problem of having to retire early due to a broken body," he announced, continuing, "I'll also be guaranteeing myself a high place in heaven. That's better than a Super Bowl ring."

Religious people all over the world were delighted to hear this. They've been praying for some time that a high-profile celebrity would give up a chosen career to take up the higher calling of preaching. One of the religious zealots, eyes toward the skies, commented, "The Lord does answer prayers."

But NY Jets fans, who regarded Tebow as an answer to their prayers, aren't so sure about that. "How're we gonna find another player of his caliber for our team?"a disgusted Jets fan asked.

"No problem," replied another fan, a computer nerd, "there's an app for that."
