I’ll admit that I am not a sports fan. I don’t watch them on television, I barely watched them when my brother played, and I definitely don’t play most of them (mainly because I’m terrible at them). Occasionally there is something that will happen in the sports world that gets my attention.
When Tim Tebow answered the question “Are you a virgin?” during a conference, it seems there has been a very mixed reaction to the question. Some thought the question was inappropriate. Others hailed Mr. Tebow for his grace in handling the question. More than anything is the fact that he answered and that his answer was yes. Considering he is an extremely popular college football athlete, Tebow’s answer carries some importance.
Tim Tebow is a Christian and has used his sports platform to promote his beliefs on occasion. On top of that, he is considered to be a role model. By practicing what he preaches, he is being a true role model. I think we should applaud him for being able to stand for what he believes in. While I’m sure now, there will be more people to watch him hoping he will mess up. I hope that he will stand true to what he believes and continue to be a good role model in the sports world.
What do you think about Tim Tebow’s “confession” and him being a role model?
