Hampton Stevens at the Washington Times has published an article with which the subject, Tim Tebow, would likely humbly take issue. I agree with Stevens: Tim Tebow is quite possibly the embodiment of what we, as an American society, need right now:
A beleaguered, balkanized and self-doubting America needs a different kind of signature athlete, a different kind of hero. And we might have found him.
Last week, he did the same thing to the New York Jets and in front of the New York media that he did the week before to the Kansas City Chiefs, and for years while winning a national championship and Heisman Trophy at Florida.
Last week, America got Tebowed.
Tim Tebow is unpredictable and improbable — symbolizing the triumph of will over skill. The values he embodies are an almost perfect counter to the nation’s sour and defeatist mood. He is relentlessly polite and optimistic, ferociously hardworking, and committed beyond all else to the idea of team over self.
There's more here.
I pray that young people continue to look up to Tebow who always points such fans to Christ. Take a few minutes and maybe you will, as I did, see a small glimmer of hope for our nation's future.
