Tim Tebow

Now, the only person I've heard praised like Jesus more than Tim Tebow is Ronald Reagan at a GOP debate, but this was kind of awesome. "The fact that Tebow had 316 yards passing and averaged 31.6 yards per pass in the game didn't escape notice on Sunday night. Tebow wore "John 3:16" on his eye black in the 2009 BCS Championship game and has since become identified with the famous Bible message. The coincidental stats caused millions of fans to perform Google searches on the Bible passage in the past 24 hours. Here's one more unbelievable stat: John Ourand of Sports Business Journal reports that the final quarter-hour television rating for the Broncos-Steelers game was, you guessed it, 31.6."


Now, while I can't approve of Tebow's iconic post TD prayer mode, or the fact that he throws some of the ugliest passes I've ever seen in a football game, I cannot deny the inspiration. There's just something magical about Tebow.
