Tim Tebow, Converter of the Passes

I've lauded the website Grantland.com before. It's a site blending sports, pop culture, and a bit of scholarly academia. I read its columns, articles, and blogs and watch videos just about everyday. Some are good, some are great, some are outstanding. "Tim Tebow, Converter of the Passes" is one of them.

Tim Tebow is a lot of things. "Other religious players are religious individuals; Tebow is a whole culture."

This article looks at what Tebow means, or doesn't mean, as a Christian icon in the sports world. "Tebow scoring a two-point conversion on an off-tackle power play *could* prove that Jesus rose from the dead on the third day, or it could, well, not."

Does rooting for Tebow mean rooting for Christianity? Or God? Or not? "Since no one really knows whether the universe is meaningless or not, things rapidly grow confusing."

Great article.
