This, or any, Monday wouldn’t be complete without a heartwarming little Tim Tebow story.  And since he once again had a hand a rather dramatic finish, I figured it was probably time to show Tebow a little love around here.  In full disclosure, I’m anything but a Tebow fan.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of the guy.  I’m just not a fan of the football player with Tebow on the back of his jersey.  The Tebow hype and hyperbole is more than I can stomach; and I truly feel sorry for his teammates having to field questions about how a 10 for 21 performance was somehow “heroic.”   That said, he and his Bronco teammates are compiling quite a list of unexpected and somewhat miraculous victories; and Sunday’s performance may be at or near the top.

Payday for Tebow?

ESPN:  Tebow has an escalator of $250,000 in his contract for each playoff victory assuming he participated in at least 70 percent of Denver’s plays during the requisite season, according to an NFL source.

Being that he played 73 percent of Denver’s plays this season, Tebow cashed in on a quarter-million salary escalator for Sunday’s 29-23 overtime victory and could earn another $250,000 with another victory Saturday night at New England against the Patriots in a divisional-round game.

    Forget all about Occupy Wall Street… John 3:16 and Christianity are in the national discussion right now. Tim Tebow gets the ball rolling, then Focus on Family uses a national pulpit to air a John 3:16 commercial during the big game…and now the “John 3:16″ song by Cindy Tucker is becoming a up trender on YouTube and share sites. What’s next biblical trading cards???

    John 3:16 is in the spotlight where it belongs.
