As Gen. George S. Patton (or at least the screen version) said: "Americans love a winner." But also: "All glory is fleeting."
UPDATE: Former NFL QB Fran Tarkenton, the son of a devout Pentecostal minister, has his own take on Tebowmania.
Just not the "Greatest Story Ever Told."
Although faith has been a part of football so long, a player like Mr. Tebow can still be extremely controversial among fans and pundits. But seriously, isn't it refreshing that the chatter around the NFL is about a great athlete with great character who says and does all the right things and is a relentless leader for his team—and not about more arrests and bad behavior from our presumptive "heroes?"Tim Tebow is the story of this football season, and a great story it is.
