Tim Tebow Circumvents Eye Black Rule with Bible Verse on Wrist Band

You didn’t think something as lame as the NFL dress code could keep Tim Tebow from spreading his faith on game days, did you? Of course not. Unlike other players who end up getting fined, Tebow figured out a way to share his message with fans while following the rules. Because players aren’t allowed to write anything on their eye black in the NFL, Tebow wrote his bible verse on his wrist band typically used for storing plays. Here’s the picture courtesy of Lindsay Jones, taken by John Leyba of the Denver Post:

The verse appears to be Luke 2:10-11, though I could be wrong. If that was his verse for the day, then it’s unbelievably foreshadowing. Luke 2:10-11 says “But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”

So is Tim Tebow the Messiah for the Denver Broncos? Is he bringing the good news causing great joy to all the people? Heck yeah he was. How about leading the Broncos to a 17-0 second half comeback including two fourth quarter touchdowns and a game-winning drive late in contest. Maybe Tebow just knew he was born to keep making special happen throughout his football career.

We were critical of Tebow coming out of college but after two solid performances, it looks like we may have been wrong. All hail Denver’s messiah — Tim Tebow.
