Weird: Jets Fan Buried in Tebow Jersey

Posted by on Mar 23, 2012 at 5:11 pm

The trade of Tim Tebow to the New York Jets isn’t even finalized yet, and some folks are already taking the Tebow worship to the extreme.

A message from the Almighty was delivered Friday at the funeral of Russell Francis, the Jets superfan who predicted on his death bed that Tim Tebow would join Gang Green.

“God told me to tell everyone here that Russell was on the winning side,” said the Rev. Mark Taylor at the Open Door Church in Brooklyn.

Before succumbing to lung cancer last Saturday, Francis peered into the future and declared that Tebow, the righteous but left-handed NFL quarterback, would soon be a Jet.

Francis, who was 44, did not live long enough to see his prediction come true.

But Francis knew, the preacher told his flock, that Tebow has what it takes to lead Gang Green to football’s Promised Land, the Super Bowl.

There may not be any Jets fans still alive who’ll be around to see that day.
