What If Tim Tebow Were Human?

Certainly you still don't believe Tim Tebow is human, do you?

Two national championships, two SEC conference championships, a Heisman, countless other individual football awards, academic awards, missionary work, prison yard speeches, The Promise, legendary status, and even a line of orange and blue thongs in honor of his name.

As Coach Urban Meyer remarked, "He's not like the rest of us."

For a brief moment in Kentucky the world held it's breath in disbelief that Tebow might actually be human, felled by the massive knee of a fellow Gator, lying motionless on the field as if struck by a Kryptonite bullet.

Later we realized that he indeed was not like us, playing the entire game in Death Valley against the LSU Tigers.  Just like his previous battles, Tebow willed his team to victory again, seemingly invincible.

Seriously, how do we know if he is really human?  Perhaps he is the first mutant on earth with superpowers.  Perhaps there are others.  Isn't it uncanny how Brandon Spikes resembles The Predator?  And can humans really run as fast as Percy Harvin, Jeffrey Demps, and Chris Rainey?  Mutants, all of them.

I'm not writing this to create hate against non-humans or to incite the NCAA to investigate illegal use of mutant superheroes in college sports.  I'm just asking a legitimate question that some may not have thought about yet.

Just ask yourself this question, "If Tebow were human, would I still like him as much?"

For a Gator like me, the answer is clear.  Whether he is white, black, brown, yellow, human, mutant, vampire, or anything else, as long as Tebow wears the Orange and Blue he is alright with me. 

I love Tebow. 

I said it.  I love Tebow, whether he is human or not.  Even his trite fist pumps and thuggish excessive celebration antics do not diminish my love and respect for Tebow.

Certainly I am guilty of some form of discrimination.  All of us are whether we realize it or not.  I hate Bulldogs, abhor Seminoles, and the damages made by Hurricanes are still considered as criminal in my book.  Lock them all up I say.

However, when it comes to the Orange and Blue of the Florida Gators there is no color, no mascot, no school its equal.

All colors, races, and creeds are welcomed to don the Orange and Blue...just as long as you can play some ball.
