(Should be said that the man later died in the hospital)
The other day on a flight from Atlanta to Phoenix, a man had a heart attack and eventually died. It caused a whole ruckus on the flight. However one man came to rescue (sort of), that man, was Tim Tebow.
If you know anything about me as a person then you know I am a HUGE Tim Tebow fan. I've loved Tim Tebow ever since I was a freshmen in high school and he was a freshmen at the University of Florida. When I was playing football I looked up to him at UF who was my favorite team at the time because of him. Yet ever since he came into the public eye basically a decade ago many people have disliked him for various reasons; mainly because of his outspoken faith.
Basically during a flight someone had a heart attack and obviously everybody was freaking out. I can't stand flying at all, if something like this happened on a plane I was on, I'd probably have a heart attack too just as a reaction. It'd become a real mess. So Tebow tried to keep the family cool and prayed with them. In a real time of need. Now people will shit on this and say it doesn't do anything, and that's fine, believe what you want, but he still went out of his way to try to console strangers in a time of need. But yeah Tim Tebow sucks. The saying of "thoughts and prayers" during times of tragedy with all the shootings and horrible acts that happen seeming everyday has become a hot button issue. Even religious people have been saying actual actions need to take place and not just words, which I agree with. But here Tebow was actually with the family, trying to console them. He didn't just reach out to someone on twitter, so I think it's a little different of a situation.
Even almost 4 years since he threw an NFL pass Tebow is still making headlines, thats just the kind of guy he is. I've always hated that people hate him because from all angles he seems like an outstanding human being. People shit on the Christianity angle which is really sad, even if you take religion out of the question the life he lives is adorable. The values taught in Christianity can be used by any person regardless of religion. The values are basically to be a good person and not fuck people over and that's how he's lived his life. I'm over it, I know the haters are just sad people with their own problems to hate a great man.
What I want to know is why is Tebow flying commercial from Atlanta to Phoenix? Guess times really have changed if my dude has to fly commercial. 2011 is a LONG time ago. Speaking of, since training camps are like a month away it's time for my yearly "why isn't Tebow in the NFL rant?" I mean honestly it makes no sense. Sure his accuracy sucked and he played in an unconventional way, but when he was given a chance to start in 2011 with a crappy 1-4 team he went 8-5. The dude won. Sure it was ugly but he beat other NFL teams. It was ugly but he won, and he was showing signs of improvement then just had the chord completely ripped out of his career. After that season he was never given another chance as a starter, and since 2012 he hasn't even been on a NFL regular season roster. That shit blows my mind, love him or hate him, when he got a chance he did special things, sure it was unconventional, but with how many awful QB's there are in the NFL I do not believe for second that every QB on an NFL roster is better than Tim Tebow. I personally think he's been black balled because of the spotlight he brings and some teams don't want to deal with that with a back-up QB. But I've studied Tebow over the years because I love him so much and last year in the pre season with the Eagles he played well enough to land an NFL job. Just gotta pray that he gets another chance this year, although even I, one of the biggest Tebow fans in the entire WORLD (yes, world) thinks he's probably out of chances.
