One of the things I said I would do in 2012 is to ‘read more and watch less.’ I just finished my first book of 2012, Tim Tebow’s memoir Through My Eyes. It was a good book, very inspirational. Tim chronicled in great detail his football career as a boy while he was home schooled, in college at the University of Florida, and his first season in the NFL with the Denver Broncos. Maybe Tim should have waited to write his memoir because his second year with the Broncos has been an exciting one. Tim also writes about his faith and his mission, or his platform as he calls it, to spread God’s word. In fact, this is more important to Tim than football. He uses his celebrity in football to make a difference in people’s lives through his foundation. It is Tim’s faith that makes him so successful. For me, this autobiography wasn’t so interesting because it wasn’t very personal in the sense of relationships or private life. I am used to reading autobiographies of actors and politicians that read like soap operas. But Tim Tebow is a true Christian and all around good guy, so there was no twisted plot in his memoir. Rather it was an uplifting, inspirational book that restored my faith. Maybe I should read more of these kind of memoirs. Please read this article that shows why Tim Tebow is such a good guy.
I am not a bandwagon drinking the Tim Tebow Kool Aid Denver Broncos fan. I have loved the Denver Broncos for over 26 years. I was a loyal fan through all the lows in the late 1980s and a proud fan in the late 1990s. I have liked Tim Tebow since the Broncos drafted him. In fact, it was the first and only NFL draft I have ever watched. I wanted them to start Tebow as soon as he became a Bronco. And I still wanted him to start when everyone was criticizing him. I know he is not a traditional NFL quarterback, but Tim is a great football player and usually gets the win. I like Tim because he never ever gives up, he believes he’ll accomplish his goal no matter the circumstances, and he always has something encouraging to say even when mistakes are made. And oh yeah, Tim Tebow is a U2 fan.
