Are you Tebowing?

The Super Bowl is coming up..are you throwing a party?!!

Every year my dad throws a huge Super Bowl party with TVs in every room and outside, food covering all the tables, and cars parked all over his half acre field. You can be there will be some Tebowing going on this year!!

Why not throw a Tim Tebow Party?!!

According to Wikipedia:

In 2010, a new rule for the next NCAA football season, dubbed "The Tebow Rule" by media because it would have affected him, banned messages on eye paint. During his college football career, Tebow frequently wore references to biblical verses on his eye black.

"Tebowing" is a neologism for the the act of taking a knee in prayer during an athletic contest.

"Tebowing" was officially recognized as a word in the English language by the Global Language Monitor, due its level of worldwide usage, which was comparable to the word "Obamamania" (referencing President Barack Obama).

In December 2011, the life-sized wall adhesions company Fathead released a "Tebowing" sticker that became the company's best-selling product in two days.

 Are you Tebowing?!!

  1. Hrm, thanks for sharing this I wasn't to up to date with all this ;)

  2. LOL I wonder if he knew he was going to be a media sensation when he did that?! :)

  3. I'm a fan of Tebow since he played for my alma mater (Go Gators!) and brought us 2 national championships.  From what I've seen of him, he is sincerely a nice guy devoted to his faith.  He visited the pediatric ward at the hospital where I work frequently when he went to school here and his foundation has raised a lot of money for the sick kids. 
    I think most of the Tebowing going on though is in parody of him and his faith.  I wish the analysts would give him a break, but he does truly seemed to be blessed and it's fun to watch him pull out these crazy overtime wins.  I would normally think there's no way in hell they beat the Patriots, but you never know with Tebow!

  4. I have never heard of this before! Can you post some pictures?

  5. I'm a big fan of Tebow but am conflicted this week.  Would love to see his success continue, but the Broncos are playing my beloved Patriots!  I suppose I'll be happy either way!

    • Haha, Cyndy, it’s really more about the “movement” he’s causing than the team…although I have to say I’m much more a Broncos fan than Patriots…teehee!! ;)

  6. I love this phenomena!

    Thank you for education. It's all new to me.

  11. Oh Janet!  What a great post!  He is so inspiring and really bringing God to the forefront in a lot of ways.  Yay for Tim Tebow!  But….I have to admit….I'm sad that they beat my Steelers last weekend!

  12. Yay for praying in public!

  13. I won't be Tebowing, I'll be doing the Discount Doublecheck with Aaron Rodgers hahaha!

  14. I guess my ignorance is blaring since I misspelled "football!"
    **Sorry**

  15. I love how new words are created!

  16. I heard of Tebowing, but I had no idea what it meant until now.  Thanks for the share. I don't know much about footfool, but I do enjoy the energy of the crowd at live games, the extent of my knowledge stops there (I know sad huh?) LOL.

  17. You should post a family picture doing it. LOL

  18. Nope! Sorry, I'm cheering on the Ravens for the play-offs! No Tebowing in this household :P

  19. How interesting!  I hadn't hear of this before. 

Speak Your Mind
