Tim Tebow shows how Tebowing is done.If you're a football fan, you've seen it done. The person quite suddenly drops to one knee, perches their elbow on the other, and rests their head on their fist. They aren't planking or owling. They're Tebowing. AKA pulling a Tim Tebow, quarterback for the Denver Broncos and hottest new Internet meme.
It's inspired by the holiest roller in the NFL, who was raised by a pastor and his wife, who homeschooled her five kids and instilled Christian values. And in case you've forgotten that part of his background, Tebow shows us. All. The. Time.
Even being told by fellow players to "shut the f--k up" when he requested they pray before a test at last year's scouting combine hasn't taken the wind out of his zealous sails. So we've had his religion bashed over our heads enough ... now let's use it to our advantage! This could be a good thing for the rest of us?
Tebowing may be the first fad to actually have some use in the real world. Planking can get you killed. Batting makes the blood rush to your head. But from this position, you can pray -- like the young quarterback himself -- ask your sweetie to marry you, even burst into song like a campy Broadway star (you'll have to spread your arms to make it work). Really, the sky is the limit!
Haven't seen a Tebow wannabe on your Facebook feed yet? The official Tebowing Tumblr presents the possibility that a surgeon can use this down on one knee, fist in the air position to celebrate a good outcome in the operating room, or to show proper reverence for the Halloween holiday (which can, frankly, use a little help with all these ridiculous attacks of late).
Have you Tebowed yet today? Come on, you know you want to!
