Sunday Tebow...

I am not a fan of the Denver Broncos.  First and foremost, because they are not the Dallas Cowboys.  Though I do like Denver, and Colorado, and the Rocky Mountains.  I am a huge Tim Tebow fan.  I wasn't always.



I only first started to pay attention to Tebow when he and his mother did the Super Bowl commercial.  I saw the huge firestorm of criticism around it, and him, his beliefs...and his throwing motion.  I saw that people wanted to attack him any way they could.  That sounded like a familiar theme..

It came more into the spotlight, when he was sacked by the Detroit Lions' Stephen Tulloch, who then proceeded to mock Tebow's praying.

What did Tebow say? “He was probably just having fun and was excited he made a good play and had a sack. And good for him.”



Tebow was born in Makati City in the Philippines, the son of Christian Baptist missionaries. While pregnant, his mother suffered a life-threatening infection with a pathogenic amoeba. Because of the drugs used to rouse her from a coma and to treat her dysentery, the fetus experienced a severe placental abruption. Doctors had expected a stillbirth and recommended an abortion to protect her life, although abortions are illegal in the Philippines, but she remained undaunted and refused having an abortion.  (For any birthers out there - Tim is eligible to be president).

Tim is the youngest of five children.  He was homeschooled all the way through high school.   Several states have proposed laws that will allow homeschoolers to play high school sports, such as Alabama, where the bill is titled "The Tim Tebow Bill."

Tebow was twice named the Florida High School Player of the Year, and won the state championship as a senior.

Tebow led the University of Florida to 2 National Championships, and won the Heisman Trophy in 2007, the only underclassman to ever win the award.

In 2008, Tebow received more first place votes for the Heisman than the winner.

In 2008, Tebow became the University of Florida's all-time career rushing touchdown leader...breaking Emmitt Smith's record.

In 2009, Tebow became the SECs all-time career rushing touchdown leader...breaking Herschel Walker's record.

Tebow's 2011 salary will be $8,230,000.






With all that, its hard to look at Tim Tebow as an underdog (again).  Yet he is...because they are out to get him.  There was a time when his values would be praised, his efforts cheered, and his reputation coveted. 

Times have changed.  Tebow is out there fighting the good fight.  I hope he keeps it up.






Oh, and I thought this was funny...

God has blessed Tim Tebow. He not only has courage to put forth his best but has the courage to stand (or kneel as the case might be) up for what he believes. We need more Christians to demonstrate their beliefs. Off hand I cannot remember the Saint who said this he is quoted as saying "Preach the Good News always, even w/o words." I will have to research this to get it right next time.

Preach the Gospel at all times...when necessary, use words.

Examples speak volumes where words would be viewed as trite.

Unfortunately there are lots of fakers out there too - just watch how many football players point skyward or kneel down and pass their hand in front of their face to make a cross sign when things go there way - it is the part time Christians that have paved the way for the changing times....

We must be diverse to Homosexuals, Bisexuals, and every other kind of creature out there, but we can't accept a christian. One word: Communism. Tear down anyone who doesn't think like you do. Destroy somebody's career because they have different views. ie. Herman Cain, Tim Tebow, Sarah Palin. Countless lives torn apart because a liberal socialist agenda.
