Do you Tebow?
As if winning seven of eight starts this season – most of them in more dramatic fashion than a Matt Damon/Jason Bourne movie – the ultimate sign of Tim Tebow’s arrival as a star with a higher Q rating than passer rating is that his surname has been turned into a verb.
Tebowing has become the latest rage in our trend-addicted society.
There are worse things. Like “The Office” without Steve Carrell or the Chris Paul trade drama.
If you don’t live on the cutting edge, Tebowing is the act of taking a knee and in prayerful reflection during a game, which is what Denver Broncos coach John Fox must do every Sunday afternoon now.
According to a website called the Global Language Monitor (which sounds like a seventh grade English teacher’s best friend), Tebowing is now an official word.
Not since “Obamamania” swept the country in 2008 has a word become a part of our language so quickly, according to the website. Is it necessary to ask when anyone last heard Obamamania used in a sentence?
Tebowing is likely to continue, at least through the end of the football season or until he throws three picks in a game.
No one saw it coming. No one’s sure how long it will last. And there’s no reason not to enjoy it.
