America Loves Tebow

For the moment, Tim Tebow is America's favorite athlete. Atheists hate that.

As Gen. George S. Patton (or at least the screen version) said: "Americans love a winner." But also: "All glory is fleeting."

UPDATE: Former NFL QB Fran Tarkenton, the son of a devout Pentecostal minister, has his own take on Tebowmania.
Although faith has been a part of football so long, a player like Mr. Tebow can still be extremely controversial among fans and pundits. But seriously, isn't it refreshing that the chatter around the NFL is about a great athlete with great character who says and does all the right things and is a relentless leader for his team—and not about more arrests and bad behavior from our presumptive "heroes?"
          Tim Tebow is the story of this football season, and a great story it is.
Just not the "Greatest Story Ever Told."

No problem here. Seem's like a nice enough guy. If it works for you, great. Someone should remind Silverman that it's only a game.
