I Worked Up The Courage To Tebow (But Somebody Thought I Was Sick)

For about a year I’ve been working out at a Nashville YMCA on an elliptical machine.  About a month ago I felt like I was supposed to tebow (to bow in prayer the way that Tim Tebow does) but I didn’t have the courage to do it.

Well, I finally worked up the courage to tebow.  After I finish on the elliptical machine I kneel and pray briefly.  Yesterday, however, when I began to tebow, I got a little carried away and prayed longer than usual.

All of a sudden, I felt something tapping me on the shoulder.  Then I heard someone saying; “Sir, are you alright?”

I stopped praying, opened my eyes, and saw a woman who works for the Y standing over me with a concerned look in her eyes.  She thought I was sick or about to pass out.

“I’m just tebowing,” I said.  Her face was blank.

“I’m bowing in prayer the way that Tim Tebow does,” I repeated.

“Are you sure you are alright?” she asked.

I tried to assure her that I was okay, but I noticed that she kept watching me the rest of my time at the Y.

They call Jeremy Lin the Taiwan Tebow.  I wonder if he ever has these kinds of problems.
