Tebow Game Day Eye-Black: Romans 8:28

OK, so Tim Tebow didn't take me up on my suggestion to go Old Testament on Lane Kiffin and Tennessee with Ezekiel 25:17, but that's probably for the best, given the grinder of a win.

Instead, Tebow used Romans 8:28, which reads (King James version):
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
"Called according to his purpose" seems to gibe with something Tebow talks about a lot: That everyone -- including himself -- has a divinely ordained path that they are charged to maximize.

In a football sense, it's not a bad proxy for "Do your job." I imagine that Tebow was disappointed by his two turnovers. I was sitting 30 feet away, directly in front of me, when he made that run and fumbled near the goal-line. Tebow was extremely unhappy with himself after that play.

And, yes, as usual, the Bible passage Tebow used on his eye-black showed up near the top of trending Google searches. (It finally settled at No. 5 for the entire day. Not bad, given that it was a 3:30 kickoff.)

  1. I constantly pray before each game that Tim Tebow will survive the game without being hurt.
