On Tebowing

Standard

C’mon. You know I have to blog about this. It’ll be short and quick.

From the tebowing website–>

tebowing: (vb) to get down on a knee and start praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different.

(I would add in that tears are optional. Then I would also add in that sensitive pro quarterbacks are ridiculously dreamy. Then I would probably sigh.)

Tebow is the pioneer of tebowing. (Obviously)

I’ve always been amused by the Christian version of popular culture things. The music charts that said “if you like this secular band, try this Christian band” and all the shirt parodies are funny to me. Christians are nothing if not clever.

And then today I started getting bombarded with links to a new website: www.tebowing.com and I’ve been shaking my head and laughing all morning.  Thing is, though, if all these people posing like Tebow praying actually would stop and pray at that moment, we would be blown away by the results. How cool for an NFL quarterback to be known for his prayer pose?! I might buy a shirt from cafepress. We’ll see.

I could go on and talk about the only way Matt Prater misses two field goals in a game like last Sunday is God intervening so Tebow could lead the team to a dramatic overtime win, thus bringing glory to God… but I’m really not sure God cares that much about football.
