SCIENTISTS HAVE DISCOVERED that …

Tebow and LeBron have something in common
It is interesting to see the visceral reactions that seem to automatically be generated by just the mere mention of some athletes’ names.
Clearly, one of those is New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow. It was bad enough when he was a member of the Denver Broncos and the fact he was comfortable with his faith seemed to drive certain, less-than-tolerant folks over the edge with hatred.
Hatred for throwing an interception? Understandable. Hatred for his having the audacity to not hide his faith? Troubling. One could even begin to understand a dislike for the act of Tebowing as it lost all meaning and became a sideshow display usurped by those only seeking attention.
But Tebow never has gone out of his way to throw his faith in anybody’s face. He hasn’t been actively proselytizing. He just seems to make people uncomfortable with their own lack of faith.
Or at least the fact he is comfortable with it seems to distress those deep down who wish they had such a strong moral foundation.
Not that there isn’t plenty about Tebow that can make one uncomfortable. Like his performance on the field.
Let’s be honest, Tebow has received a lot of hype and much of it is clearly overblown, and now that he has gone from Denver to the media-hype capital of the universe, New York, his name, face and thoughts are going to be seen and magnified like never before.
Some media outlets are running daily Tebow reports and he just recently appeared in GQ doing a supposed “Jesus pose” with his arms outstretched. We will leave it at that.
All that publicity and he hasn’t done a thing of serious consequence on the NFL gridiron. A couple of nice comebacks here and there for sure, but nothing more.
So, if you must take issue with Tebow, take issue with the fact he really hasn’t done much to measure up to the hype, not the fact he has faith.
But Tebow isn’t the only player who seems to generate plenty of conversation by just showing up.
LeBron James of the Miami Heat has that effect as well.
James has had a quite a year, leading Miami to a five-game triumph for the NBA title over the Oklahoma City Thunder, earning MVP finals and regular season honors in the process.
But again, folks seem to fixate on a perceived negative. There still are plenty of folks begrudging James for leaving Cleveland and heading to Miami and proclaiming he would win multiple titles.
