I love football - well, I love high school football and the NFL. I've never gotten caught by college aports for whatever reason. I probably could love that too. I know football, I can talk football, and I used to have a favorite team, but as free agency took over the NFL and no-one stayed put for long, I lost that feeling. In season, I could (and often do) watch football all day - no particularly interest in who wins or loses but I enjoy the excitement and athleticism.
I have been well aware of the "John 3:16" signs in the end zone seats forever, and have been hearing "I just thank God and my mama" from every interviewed player ever. I never heard of Tim Tebow until a couple months ago, so do not pretend to be exactly sure what the fuss is about him and why he is the focus of so much hysteria. Is he so different from all those other guys, praying and pointing to God, and thanking God in interviews throughout the decades? I don't know - whatever - but it seems ridiculous to me that anyone could believe that taking a knee after a touchdown and bowing one's head means a darn thing. Does he take a knee after a 3 yard run and thank God for those 3 yards? Or after a sack, does he take a knee and thank God it was only a 12 yard loss and not a 30 yard loss? I just don't get it.
