NFL fans took a break from Tebowing to create another pose after the Super Bowl: “Bradying.” The New England Patriots quarterback was caught looking downtrodden towards the end of Super Bowl XLVI, head down and hands folded, after the Patriots were defeated by the Giants for the second time in four years. Now the Tom Brady pose has become the latest Internet meme.
Patriots haters especially embraced the fad, but how long until it fades?

Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl knows how to have some fun while in office. After all, he became the city’s youngest mayor when he was elected in 2006 at age 26.
Ravenstahl made good on a promise with Denver Mayor Michael Hancock that if the Steelers lost to the Broncos, he would be take the “tebowing” position while being photographed. He posed in Steel City’s Roberto Clemente Memorial Park after the Broncos defeated the Steelers 29-23 on Sunday.
“This is not something I ever thought I’d have to do, and it’s certainly not something I’m looking forward to,” Mayor Ravenstahl said in a statement. “However, we’re good sports here in Pittsburgh and I want to congratulate Denver on a great win.”
Had the Steelers won, Mayor Hancock would have had to wave the Terrible Towel at a public event.Posted in Football, Politics
From planking to Tebowing to the latest Internet fad: Ortoning. Ryan Parker tells us Ortoning is “looking really sad, Ortoning is when you realize that you are bad, Ortoning is watching someone new, doing something better than you.”
Ortoning is of course in reference to Kyle Orton, who was the quarterback of the Denver Broncos before Tim Tebow became the starting quarterback and Orton was benched before being released in November and claimed by the Kansas City Chiefs.Posted in Football, Music
The folks over at Fathead, the makers of sports wall graphics, have added “Tebowing” to their product line. The word that just became official, was made famous by Tim Tebow‘s act of taking a knee during an athletic competition. The graphic of the kneeling Denver Broncos quarterback costs $99.99 and is only one of a series of Tebow posters which include others of him in action, and in a Florida Gators jersey.

The Tim Tebow phenomenon continues… The Global Language Monitor website said that “Tebowing,” the act of taking a knee in prayer during an athletic competition, is now an official word in the English language.
A press release from the site said that the quick reactions and use of Tebowing “has seldom been equaled, mirroring, for example, the rate of adoption of the word Obamamania in early 2008.”
Tim struck the now famous pose after leading his team, the Denver Broncos to a come-from-behind overtime victory over the Miami Dolphins in October.
Seems that Tebowing is here to stay!

Sports songwriter Ryan Parker made a song and video about Tim Tebow. Called “Tebowing” and played to the tune of Tom Petty’s “Free Falling,” here’s the homage to the quarterback who is now 4-1 as a starter in Denver:Football, Music
After Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow helped the Miami Dolphins secure a win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 7, he got down on one knee and appeared to be praying. It’s a pose that has turned into a verb, “Tebowing,” or “to get down on a knee and start praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different.” Similar to planking, photos of people in random situations “Tebowing” are spreading across the Internet, thanks especially to the website dedicated to it.
Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch was even aware of the popularity of “Tebowing” when he paused for a pose after sacking the Broncos quarterback. The Broncos were slaughtered by the Lions on Sunday, losing 10-45.
While TebowMania hit hard after the Broncos win over Miami, criticism about Tebow’s performance on Sunday was not withheld. Mark Kizla of the Denver Post even said, “Those five wonderful minutes against Miami now look like an aberration. Right here, right now, he is the worst quarterback in the NFL.” Ouch.Posted in Football
