Yes, I like Tim Tebow. I like his eclectic playing style, I like his deep commitment to his non-hate-filled religious principles, and I like that he’s been raking in money and basking in fame for a few years without being involved in a sordid scandal. The same things that I like, of course, drive certain people nuts. Two sports commentators (and please understand that I don’t really follow sports) have spent the last couple of years trying to gnaw away at Tebow’s image. The most obvious line of attack, of course, is his skill (or lack thereof) as a quarterback. Just a few days ago, though, they thought they’d hit the jackpot with “proof” that Tebow is a poor sportsman and that his whole “good Christian” persona is therefore a lie.
Factually, the reporters were barking up the wrong tree. Still, the whole kerfuffle was still worth something. As Rick at Brutally Honest amply demonstrates, while the reporters didn’t hurt Tebow, they made a very convincing argument that they themselves fall far short of the true measure of a man.
