what if Teabow were praising Allah after every home run or 3-pointer or whatever it is that he does?

if he talked about Allah and Mohammad in his press conferences? if he wrote references to the Koran underneath his eyes?

would that be cool?

Bingo. That's the thing that always amuses me about this stuff. So long as it's your religion being promoted every which way, it's fine. Any other religion, though, not fine. Then it's being "pushy".

Of course Christians will say you're free to express your own religious beliefs, or even sexual orientation in public and you'll be treated the same.

Yet, either the other religions are preaching a more low key approach to their faith in America, or the fact is other religious people are afraid to come out and express their beliefs in the same way Tebow (and others) for fear of public backlash (specifically from the Right).

I believe it's the same as how many current pro athletes have come out and said they are gay? It's well known they exist, yet they don't want to come out due to fear, within their own organziation, community, and on a national stage. It's always after their career is over when they feel it's safe to express who they truly are.

So in summary, no way Tebow gets the following he has if he professed that "Allah willing" the Bronco's beat the Patriots this Saturday night.

It might arguably be even MORE popular if it actually were that .

if i've ruined the words "Tim Teabow" for even just one person out there, then i have done my job.


(in reality, while i don't care about football, i obviously know what it is, how it's played, and that if i did care that i would be cheering for the Patriots this weekend out of geographic loyalty and not out of dislike for Mr. Teabow).

Ah yes, who could forget that, the memorable final scene of the final instalment of the gay porn classic 'John' trilogy - John 3: 16".

Yeah, that song really needed a remake. Now it will be stuck in my head just like My God Is An Awesome God. And I just finished Rob Lowe's book too. Full circle moment...

Tom Brady's got a big fire engine that's gonna put out Tim Tebow's fire Sat night. I hope. If he doesn't well damn Tim Tebow to hell for all eternity


'St. Elmo's Fire' singer reworks 1980's hit for Tim Tebow
Web Staff FOX31 Denver

January 11, 2012

DENVER -- What happens when you combine one of the most popular songs of the 1980’s and one of today’s most popular athletes? A runaway Internet hit.

British rocker John Parr has re-recorded his 1985 #1 song “St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion),” with lyrics inspired by Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow.

“Tim Tebow’s Fire” had more than 230,000 hits on YouTube Wednesday evening, just 48 hours after it was first posted on the FOX31 Denver YouTube Channel and Facebook page.

“I can see a new horizon, Underneath the blazin' sky,” Parr sings in the sweeping chorus. “I'll be where the eagle's flyin' higher and higher.”

“Gonna be a man in motion, All I needs my Broncos team. Take me where my future's lyin'
Tim Tebows Fire.”

Parr explained his decision to essentially parody his own song.

“I was inspired by Tim Tebow so I wanted to modify the lyrics...in his honor of the way that he lives his life as being a great example,” Parr told FOX31 Denver on Monday.

“St. Elmo’s Fire (Man in Motion),” which Parr wrote and recorded for the Brat Pack-era movie of the same title, reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States in September 1985 and received a Grammy nomination.

Parr originally performed 'Tim Tebow's Fire' live on ESPN in October 2011 and later released a full studio version. He also recently recorded a new song titled 'Just a Man’ - a completely original song about Tebow, although Parr never directly mentions him by name.

You mean like Muhammad Ali used to give praise to Allah after each of his fights? And he was only named Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Decade. And aren't American athletes who legally change their name to a Muslim name literally putting their faith on the back of their jersey?

Cooler than a Christian athlete putting John 3:16 under his eyes in any Islamic republic I should think.

But yes, as a fan in the stadium, I would certainly get a little nervous if late in the game I knew a Muslim quarterback was in the huddle calling for the next play to be "a bomb." (pause....) And we'd probably have to stop calling that a "hail Mary" pass wouldn't we?
