OK, here’s the question, say you got a job but you are not very good at what you do (we will pick at random, oh, being a quarterback in the NFL), you got the support of your boss and your co workers and you are really trying, but not cutting it for the simple fact that your skills are lacking and sub standard, but instead of the usual grumblings and……wait for it……Monday morning quarterbacking, the folks turn your name into a verb, and a new movement is created, but the movement kinda makes fun of you, are you insulted or elated?
Introducing Tebowing. It’s like planking, but dumber.It wasn’t enough that Tim Tebow dominated NFL headlines for a week with his comeback win over the Dolphins on Sunday. No, “Tebow” has to be a verb now, too.
What does it mean? To Tebow is “to get down on a knee and start praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different.” That’s according to Tebowing.com, your new Internet home for Tebowing.
And if you go to tebowing.com, you see more of it in action.
I gotta tell ya, this is cracking me up.
Yesterday the Detroit Lions not only put a pasting on Tebow, but decided to get into the act:
Tebow had a monster career in college, but literally hit a brick wall with The Broncos, and he’s not the first. He is a good athlete but can’t read defenses, and is not accurate in his passes. His work ethic is good so maybe, with practice, he can learn these skills.
There has been a lot of controversy over the years (Kurt Warner?) concerning sports figures thanking God or Jesus after a victory (like he really cares about some dumb sporting event). As long as what they are doing is legal, I got no problem with athletes trying to get “an edge”, thank whoever or whatever you think helped you get there. New #1 in tennis, Novak Djokovic, has been very vocal about his new gluten free diet and how that has propelled him to the top.
Whatever your motivation, and if the fans can get a little fun out of it, contort away. But the movement is not complete until there is photo documentation of some couple Tebowing mid coitus, Tebowing on top of the Empire State building, one on the top of Half Dome, and a tebower mid bow in a barrel going over Niagara falls.
