If Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos win against the New England Patriots on Saturday, Tebow Mania might just take over the world. There is something about this young quarterback that intrigues both sports fans and non-sports fans alike. The fact that he pulled off a crazy upset last week and is now facing the elite Tom Brady & Co. tomorrow night has got everyone buzzing ... can he do the impossible? Can he go all the way? Perhaps with a little bit of help from Upstairs?
As Friday the 13th is a day full of superstition and "magic," who are we to say that some higher power isn't on Tebow's side as well? Some brand-new 3:16 stats and photos have come out that show someone up there was paying attention. If you're not at least a teeny bit convinced that some kind of divine intervention was involved in this game, God must be wondering, What more do I have to do to convince these people??
So, back in his college career, Tebow played the BCS Championship Game in 2009 wearing eye black with the inscription John 3:16. This is a famous Bible passage, which reads: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
The numbers 3:16 will eerily go on to mean big things in Tebow's career. On top of Tebow throwing for 316 yards and averaging 31.6 yards per completion against the Steelers, some more creepy stats came out last week's playoff game:
Five 3:16 stats in just one game alone? Yeah, I think I'm staying in tonight and taking a cold shower. Maybe there really is something behind this freaky numbers magic, and I kind of don't want to push my Friday the 13th luck at this point!
If you still are having a hard time wrapping your head around the fact that maybe Tebow was simply destined to win this game, check out the photos taken by a fan during the Steelers/Broncos game of the "Mile High Halo." Even if this was due to pyrotechnics or an extremely lost airplane, all these stats and photos have made it clear that God doesn't care about injustice and poverty and wars, nope, He cares about football! If Tebow manages to pull off yet another upset and yet another halo appears over the stadium in Foxborough, I think we all better start believing.
How else can you explain all these freaky incidents? Does Tebow have something more than talent on his side?
