Just in case you went on a two-day heroin bender starting early Sunday or you were busy occupying stuff for the past several days, Tim Tebow really screwed up the Broncos' chance of drafting Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck after the season. He led two touchdown drives with less than three minutes remaining in the game and beat the Miami Dolphins in overtime -- and afterward, as you might expect, Twitter exploded with Tebow talk -- much of it hilarious.

The Chosen One was still trending over 24 hours after the team's second win of the season. A surprisingly large amount of NBA players offered compliments and an unsurprisingly large number of guys whose avatar is a picture of themselves taken with their cell phone in the mirror called him "fucking gay."

Here are the ten best tweets about Tebow.

10. Andrew Brandt:

It's an easy joke to make, but it's still clever -- and it gets you on the list.

We will always remember where we were when Tim Tebow led the 2nd crappiest team in the NFL to an ot victory over the worst team in the NFL.

9. Stephen Rodrick:

Only slightly less monumental than the JFK assassination, right?

I'm not where I can see the Tebow game, but did he run over and turn the Gatorade bucket into wine or heal a leper on the sideline?

8. Ryan McGee:

This tweet obviously plays on Tebow's rich history in witchcraft.

So, @RealSkipBayless wants you to remember Tebow "just won". I hope he remembers he was also "just playing the Dolphins."

7. Peyton's Head:

We're not sure what it says about America that a Twitter account making fun of the size of Peyton Manning's head has over 13,000 followers. Still, this tweet both makes fun of relentlessly annoying


gas bag Skip Bayless and points out that playing Miami is not a real NFL game.

Remember that time Tim Tebow saved the world by beating the 0-5 Miami Dolphins?

A message


executives should have read before planning their post-game coverage.

Page down for the top five.

Tim Tebow leads the Broncos to victory and I have to tell you, that guy spends more time on his knees than Ricky Martin

5. Shooter McGavin:

Apparently, the bad guy from

Happy Gilmore

has a Twitter account and likes to make religious/gay jokes.

Tebow is white, plays against Miami, loved by fans, and only plays well in the 4th quarter - complete opposite of LeBron

4. The Fake ESPN:

An ironic tweet considering LeBron James is Tebow's most famous Twitter fan.

If you are excited about Tim Tebow beating the Miami Dolphins, you are either a lunatic, or you just woke up after being frozen in 1984.

3. Bruce Arthur:

For those of you who aren't big sports fans, the 1984 Dolphins went 14-2, started Dan Marino at quarterback and played in the Super Bowl. This year's Dolphins might go 0-16, start something called Matt Moore at QB and will only go to the Super Bowl if they buy tickets.

#WeCan'tWait for Tim Tebow to quit shaving and get just a tad beefier...he's gonna be such a hot cub someday. http://t.co/Vyl6PaVh

2. Manhunt:

We got so caught up in the win that we forgot to mention

Tebow kissed a dude

-- wide receiver Demaryius Thomas. Manhunt, which claims to be the biggest and best place online for men to meet men, is pretty excited about what appears to be a Tebow man kiss.

Tim Tebow has started to call 3rd downs "Muslims" because of how much trouble he has converting them.

1. The Fake ESPN:

Making its second appearance on this list, Fake


comes strong by covering the religious and athletic bases. It's the Twitter equivalent of Tebow's second touchdown pass.
