If it wasn’t nationally known before, Tebowing has now become a national phenomenon. The actual word Tebowing is now official, and holiday cards are now flooding the market with Tim Tebow Tebowing to baby Jesus.

Thanks a lot, Tim Tebow.

With that one touchdown celebration giving thanks to his savior, Tebow has started what could be the biggest sensation to sweep across the United States since acid-washed jeans and the mullet. Let’s break this down bit-by-bit to understand what we’re dealing with.

While Timmy has been guiding the Broncos to a 7-1 record, the world has been catching fire with Tebowmania.

Like Hulk Hogan before him, Tebow has become a hero to many Americans. All of these last-second comebacks when all hope looks lost is exactly what the American spirit is all about.

That’s why a Christmas card featuring Tim Tebow Tebowing to the baby Jesus makes nothing but sense. While the three wise men brought gifts that Jesus couldn’t use, Tebow brings the savior touchdowns!

As if a Christmas card of Tebowing wasn’t enough, the Global Language Monitor has added Tebowing to its list of official words. They describe the action of any player going down to one knee during a celebration as Tebowing.

That’s the best news I could have ever heard. Long after Tebow is done ruling this earth, the touchdowns scored will still be celebrated by Tebowing. And we have to call it that forever.

My advice for someone who doesn’t absolutely love Tim Tebow at this point is to first clean your heart of all the ice you keep there, and second, look at the joy it puts on the faces of the youth.

Tim Tebow is not only a great football player, he is a role model to our youth and the future face of the NFL. Better get used to his face, folks. He is going to be Tebowing his way into your heart soon enough.
