I'm a believer that this world needs to believe in SOMEthing, that's for sure. This week it was an average sports figure who's been noticed more for his "faith" than his stats. If that's what gets people through the week then I'm a believer, too.

Too bad the Patriots beat the Broncos, it would've been a higher than high media trip this week.

How can Tebow be Bradied? He doesn't play against him.

I believe that we witnessed another great quarterback out there -- Tebow was Bradied!

Looked up info about Tim Tebow and his mother:

Tebow was born in Makati City in the Philippines, to American parents who were serving as Christian Baptist missionaries. His mother, Pamela Elaine, is the daughter of a U.S. Army colonel, and his father, Robert Ramsey Tebow II, is a pastor.

While pregnant, Tebow’s 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. Tebow’s mother refused and Tim was born.

J.D. Millane, writing in phillyburbs.com, said, “NFL quarterback Tim Tebow’s unapologetic public witness to his Christian faith irritates his critics ... It is not Tebow’s post-game Jesus talk that riles detractors. It’s that they know his mother, Pam, experiencing a difficult, high-risk pregnancy in 1987, chose not to abort him when her doctors insisted she would die if she didn’t.

“The decision to choose life, along with Tebow’s professional success this season leading the Denver Broncos, is a powerful pro-life message. This is anathema to pro-choicers. In the culture war over abortion, Tebow is a unique symbol and a potent threat. The rancor really began in January 2010 when Tebow and his mother made a pro-life ad that was broadcast during the Super Bowl. The ad obliquely mentioned her decision not to abort, with Pam Tebow saying, ‘Timmy almost didn’t make it into this world.’”

Isn't he the one that the Doctor's tried to convince the mom to have an abortion when she was pregnant with him...and she refused?

Well, I believe that Tim Tebow is definitely a mover, but there have been other great quarterbacks in history too. I believe Tebow is great and is entertaining. Like others in sports e.g. Sammy Sosa, he has a ritual which has caught people's attention, leading to an even larger popularity. I try not to make religion a center point when deciding whether or not I like a person. If Tebow IS who he portrays, then I see him as an extraordinary roll model for kids. Hope we don't hear of any shenanigans from him in the future. I probably won't be running out to buy the new remake of St. Elmo's Fire, however. You never said if you what you thought KJ.

Tebow is fun to watch, he makes the game more exciting. That and the fact that he is such an inspirational guy make him an awesome person.
