    Ok so I got get to work this morning, and we spread out to do stretches like always. Me and this other guy are talking about the games, and the conversation just went to places I never expected, and it went quick. So here is the conversation as close to word for word as I remember it. Hopefully you guys get some sort of entertainment out of it, or something. Just try to follow along. This is hard to convey via message board.

    Guy #1 - And my hatred for Peyton Manning grows.

    Me - You hate Peyton Manning? I love Peyton Manning.

    Guy #1 - I just have no respect for him.

    Me - How can you not respect Peyton Manning?

    Guy #2(Barging in from nowhere) - *Sarcasm* Oh how many Super Bowls has Peyton won? How many times has he lost to Tom Brady?

    Guy #1 - I just don't respect him because of how he had the rules changed because the Patriots defenders used to be so physical with his receivers when he was with the Colts .

    Me - Yea he babyed about it, but he's played with the same rules as everyone else since then and he's still just better than almost every other QB,

    Guy #2 - *More dbag sarcasm* Oh, how many national titles did Peyton Manning win? ZERO

    Me - National Titles? What like college? Who cares? Tim Tebow was one of the greatest college players of all time. Is he better than Peyton Manning?

    This is where the conversation starts getting really stupid.

    Guy #2 - Tim Tebow is better than 90% of the QBs in the NFl right now.

    Me - *Baffled look* Are you serious? Tebow can't even throw.

    Guy #2 - If you could have Kellen Clemens or Tim Tebow, who would you take?

    Me - Kellen Clemens. Tebow is crap.

    Guy #2 - I can name 13 QBs right now that aren't as good as Tim Tebow. Tebow beat the Steelers in the playoffs. Tebow is a winner

    Me - That was a fluke. He made 1 throw the whole game, and it just happened to be to a wide open receiver after a blown coverage in overtime. If Tebow was so good he'd still be in the league.

    And here he goes full ragman. Guy #1 is pretty much just standing there staring back and forth.
    Guy #2 - Tebow isn't in the league because we live in a Christian hating society.

    Me - *Stunned silence, staring at him* Are you kidding me? We lived in a society controlled by Christians. When's the last time you saw an Atheist elected to public office?

    Guy #2 - Try going to school and saying something bad about God. You'd get expelled!

    Me - You have no idea what you're talking about. If it was a Christian hating society, you would get expelled for saying you love God, not for saying you hate him. This country it run by people of the Christian faith, that's just a fact. Good or bad, it's true.

    Guy #2 - Our president is a Muslim!

    Me - Dude come on. Obama is a Christian.

    Guy #2 - Oh yea? Look at his name. That's a Muslim name.

    Me - *Walking away* People aren't grouped into religion based on their names, man. That's freaking ignorant.

    Conversation ends because stretches are over.

    Ok so there it is. I just felt like I should get that out there. This was only about a 2 minute conversation that went from Peyton Manning to Tim Tebow to our Muslim President. I just thought it was nuts, and not where I thought it was going to go. Especially considering it was only 6 in the morning. Way too early for crap like that.

    I feel like @ball in the baskett. Long rant about my day with no real point lol.

    Fair question. I was referring to the IQ level behind his replies. Perhaps if he had been submitting his responses to me in writing there would have been a lot of caps.

    I was actually getting irritated. Not even because of what he was saying, but the way he was saying it. Ignorance at that level is just so incredible, it's hard to even laugh at. I mean you guys know me, I don't have any problem debating religion and whatever, but the person I'm talking to has to be at least halfway competent. And the fact that me and guy #1 were having a simple conversation about sports and guy #2 just jumped in and hijacked it. I got a little irritated.

    Guy #1 ended up coming over to me a while later basically like, Wtf was that dude talking about.

    This is actually the first real conversation I've ever had with him. We talked briefly about the national championship game because he's an Alabama fan too, but that's it. So needless to say he makes a very poor first impression.

    Next time you see guy #2 approach him, tell him that you weren't formally introduced and that your name is Steve Abdul Khadim. And please have your Smartphone with you to tape it.
