When will we see #GleeBowing?
"Tebowing" is officially a word. Finally.
I've been praying about that forever. Or a few weeks.
"The Global Language Monitor announced Monday that it acknowledges that the word Tebowing has officially entered the English language.
The website, which monitors global language trends, said in a statement to USA Today that the rapid rise of "Tebowing" as a word "has seldom been equaled, mirroring, for example, the rate of adoption of the word Obamamania in early 2008."
"Tebowing" officially entered the lexicon of Americans after the immensely popular Tebow led a comeback victory over the Miami Dolphins in his first start of the season on Oct. 23."
Tebow and Tebowing is a phenomenon (or a pandemic). It is global in scale. It is a hurricane force, an ATM machine, and maybe the most recognizable new icon in the world. It will be like Jordan's jumpman, McDonald's arches and Coke's cursive.
Heck, it may be like Jesus' cross. People say that God has better things to do than help Tim Tebow win football games. My thought is, well Tim Tebow keeps winning football games, and last time I checked, global catastrophes keep on happening. I think God must take his own advice, keep thy sabbath holy, not do any work, and watch some football.
And why wouldn't He? At a time when people are more cynical than ever, when the Catholic Church is embroiled in controversy, when church attendance is faltering, using Tim Tebow as a mouth-piece to spread His word is a great idea.
How many non-believers are looking at Tim Tebow, his faith, and more importantly, what Tebow has achieved due to his faith, and saying, "I want THAT."
Don't be surprised if Tebow saves souls and saves the church, not just the Denver Broncos.
And for those of you who are already believers, or for those of you who never will be, you can just partake in that other great American religious tradition: consumption. Now, you can finally get a Tebowing Fathead, which is one of two top-selling Tebow-related items!
(Oddly, isn't putting a Tebowing Fathead on your wall and looking up to it False Idolatry?! Oh, I'm so confused.)
