Tim Tebow Rules
Just thinking about how truly awesome Tim Tebow is.
1. He has created the feeling that God is on his side.
2. He wins more with heart and charisma than talent.
3. He has a very public charity. It does both good for the world and strengthens his status.
4. He is the king of the humble brag. He seems to be very humble but he is an exceptional businessman, a brilliant marketer, fills his website with photos of himself showing off his great physique and talent. He feels he knows the mind of God, who should be President, when life begins, and how humans must live. He is not humble. In fact, I would be shocked if he does not one day run for office. Yet he comes off as the essence of humble. Remarkable.
5. He is particularly devoted to glorifying the military without paying much attention to the carnage of war. This, while he is also devoted to Jesus, whose core messaage as I understand it, is peace and love. It's pure marketing genius. To love both God and the Military guarantees a very, very solid fan base.
6. He seems like not only a very nice guy, but a truly inspired being. He actually seems to glow.
7. His college track record is amazing, and he is currently (though I doubt this will last) a massive force in the NFL.
8. He is a classic American. At our best, we believe we can WILL ourselves to greatness.
Speaking as a Professional Shyster, the man is absolutely one of my all-time biggest heroes. You might even say, nobody does it better.
