I always just assumed that Satan doesn’t watch sports. Much like God, he should have better things to do, like ensure the eternal damnation of anyone who puts time, effort, and money into customizing a jersey to feature the devil’s name and favorite number.

But that would require watching sports, so I guess the picture above from Sunday’s Broncos-Patriots game makes sense. However, I’m still a little baffled by his status as a Patriots fan. While certainly passionate, Pats fans seem pretty harmless. Satan would fit in much better in Oakland, where his disciples wear chain mail to games and have spikes growing out of their foreheads. But hey, who am I to judge the Lord of Darkness.

One of Satan’s primary enemies was defeated Sunday, and the visual evidence of his attendance as he plotted Tim Tebow’s demise was passed along into the teeth of the Internet by Lob Shots, the San Diego-based sports and pop culture blog that wished the kid from Denver who popularized the Jesus jersey was also at the game. We could have witnessed the clash between good and evil, life and death, and darkness and light. Instead we settled for Tebow vs. Brady.

Also, why is Satan wearing a Santa hat? We’re pretty sure this is how the rapture starts.
