If your anger regarding his Super Bowl ad makes you thirsty, Tim Tebow recommends Gatorade

Feb 6, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

If it were up to Tim Tebow, we would all forget about his controversial Super Bowl ad – that story has become tiresome and been blown way out of proportion. And if his recent statements and repeated attempts to sidestep the firestorm he finds himself in indicate anything, he believes we should just do away with all the divisiveness, set aside all the hand-wringing and gnashing of teeth and instead focus on something he thinks we can all agree upon:
How awesome is Gatorade, right? That stuff is just great. Really, really great.

Tebow participated in a two-hour evaluation Friday for Gatorade to test some of the sports drink’s new line of performance products. Considering Gatorade was invented at the University of Florida, Tebow was thrilled to help out.

“I don’t have to fake it,” Tebow said. “I believe in the product. It’s part of my life for a long time. Being a Gator, that’s what you drink. My personality, if I don’t believe in something, I can’t fake it.”

What surprised St. Tebow, however, is that reporters weren’t particularly interested in discussing the merits and wonderful qualities of Gatorade – they had something else in mind – his controversial “Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life” ad set to air during the Super Bowl on Sunday. Tebow, who has canceled several interviews during Super Bowl week due to the controversy, nevertheless seemed frustrated that reporters would enter into that line of questioning, as if he naively doesn’t understand why the commercial has caused such a ruckus.
Being a polite and gracious young man, Tebow briefly addressed the issue and quickly attempted to move the dialogue in a different direction.

“That’s something I believe in,” Tebow said about the commercial. “That’s just something I’ll let people watch. I don’t really want to comment on it. I’d just really love to talk about a Gatorade product and what we experienced today.”

Come one, people! Forget about all that stuff, he wants to talk about Gatorade. For the love of God, let the man talk about Gatorade!

And you naysayers can try all you want, ain’t nothing gonna break Tebow’s stride, ain’t nothing going to slow him down.
Oh no! (oh no!)…

“It’s crazy,” Tebow said. “It’s obviously a lot of scrutiny. There are a lot of good things and a lot of bad things when you’re dealing with it. There are pros and cons, just like with everything.

“I want people to believe in me,” he said. “So when they don’t, when they talk negatively about me, when they create lies about me, when they stir stuff up about me, it can be frustrating. Some of it is false. Some of it is lies. Some of it, people just want to bring you down.

“Yes, it’s frustrating. But it does give me a lot of motivation.”

Do you hear that, people? Doubt Tim Tebow all you want, even stir stuff up about him if you like. It will only make him stronger, more focused, more dedicated…
Which I am sure whatever CFL team that signs him after his NFL dreams flame out will truly appreciate.
Oooh, burn. Seriously, the guy doesn’t even know how to take a snap from center, for Pete’s sake.

    Your obviously not a very good writer. Tebow is an excellent role model. He will do just fine. He’s handled his self better than most of the thugs coming out of college.

    Even if he flops in the NFL or never even gets there he is a success. the fact that he is saving himself for marriage and is not ashamed to admit it does him and his parents credit- He is indeed an excellent role model.
    All those who are so ardent about hating him and making fun of him are really sad little people and they have my sympathy.

    Tim Tebow has the full QB star package. The pundents who state that Tebow will be lucky to make the 2d round are foolish at best. Tebow is a proven winner. His style of play is licked to a young Terry Bradshaw. Good mobility and a thinker on the feet. Tebow is at his best when teams are mixing it up duing any given play. If I’m picking 2d overall a la Detroit, I’m picking another QB in Tebow. Trade Stafford and get Peppers on the D. Oh, throw in TO for sinc up with Calvin Johnson. Awesome show of a “winning attitude when it comes to putting the right players on your roster.” Good luck and enjoy the ride.

    JJ – “Your obviously not a very good writer.”

    Good Lord. People!! Freedom of speech and free will thinking is what made this country. I give Tebow credit for using his position and his thinking to say it honestly.(no like Vick who slays innocent animals by electrocution or hanging, and then tries to lies about it. A lot of the football players are a disgrace to our youngsters, and I cringe when I see them get big bucks for slinging trash. I myself do not want to see Tebow sign up with any football team. He can make big bucks by being himself and what he believes. He is destined for better things. I would like to see him coach, and taught by Urban Meyer, or go into sports but not get out there with a bunch of hoodlums. Tebow does not have their killer instinct. I hope he does something else and not play football and stay an asset to our young males and females growing. Gee you get a fellow who shines and you people want to bash him. He is on your and my childrens side..

    And don’t forget “He’s handled his self better…” Try “He’s handled himself better…” You are not a professional writer, jj, but if you are going to criticize a professional writer, try not to have errors in two of your three sentences.

    Learn how to spell. Its pundits not pundents and why is Tebow licking Terry Bradshaw

    weed – You obviously been smoking some just before you wrote this article. Tebow – CFL? Next you’ll be telling us the Rams will win Super Bowl XLIV. The two outcomes have parallel validity. Obviously, from your reading your article, you’ll need someone to explain what validity means. Write your hate mail to your family, not in publication. Tebow is the real thing. He’s earned respect. Something you haven’t.

    And why are you giving English lessons? Oh, you forgot a “period” after your last sentence smart one. Ouch!!!!!
