My ignorance of sports is vast. However, I believe I now have a favorite quarterback. Focus on the Family has paid for a 30 second ad during the Super Bowl featuring former University of Florida Quarterback Tim Tebow and his mother Pam. When Pam was pregnant with Tim she contracted amoebic dysentery. Harsh antibiotics were administered to her to rouse her from a coma. She was counseled to have an abortion, being warned that her baby would be stillborn or live only a few hours. She refused to have an abortion and Tim Tebow came into the world.
This is a gutsy move on Tebow’s part. He hasn’t even started his NFL career yet. The safe move would have been to wait until he was established in his career and then tell his story. Doing it now will doubtless make him a lot of enemies and lessen his value in the market place. However, there are more important things than the bottom line, and on that scale Tim Tebow is on his way to a championship season.
