Let’s Keep It Simple:
1) He’s a celebrity. He’s witnessing in his workplace. Sunday church attendance is not vital. He’s ultra-American. All in all, he’s an embodiment of the evangelical ideal.
2) I don’t envy anyone who has to live his life as a symbol.
3) He’s young. Most of us would like a few replays of what we did in our twenties. Maybe he will, too. But he seems like a good kid.
4) Once after Tebow was sacked, his opponent mocked him with a kneeling “Tebow.” Tebow’s response: “He was probably just having fun and was excited he made a good play and had a sack. And good for him.” Well said, Tim.
5) At some point a journalist is likely to find some reason to do a moral “gotcha” piece on Tebow. Some will rejoice when it happens.
Five points; that’s a nice number. In conclusion and from a pure football point of view, he’s had a nice run in Denver, but he’s going to be exposed by Bill Belichick this Sunday. When that happens, you have permission to rejoice if your team is in the AFC West or if you’re a Pats partisan.
