Tebowing: The rest of the story
When you want to know if something has become popular just talk to a teenager.
So I asked my daughter last night about “Tebowing” — the new
To my surprise she had indeed heard of Tebowing. As a matter of fact, she told me Tim Tebow had recently tweeted (because of course Twitter is how the kids find out about everything) that he liked the idea.
If you haven’t heard of Tebowing, here’s my brief explanation: A Denver native created or came up with the word to describe when someone gets down on a knee and starts praying, even if everyone else around them is
doing something completely different.
This apparently was inspired by Tebow, who plays for the Denver Bronchos NFL team, doing that very thing on the sidelines during a football game.
Last week, when I first heard about this, I wondered if perhaps this was something that mocked Tebow and his Christian faith. But now, I”m thinking, who cares if the intent is to mock, this may actually get some folks down on their knees and maybe they will pray.
One can only hope.
Anyway, here are some stories about the issue for those interested in what the rest of the nation is saying about this:
