Almost every hour of the day is Tebow Time in Denver.
Coloradans — even the non-football fans — are as shocked and awed as anyone by the miracle occurring in their own backyard with the rise of Tim Tebow, the Denver Broncos quarterback and quite possibly the most famous Christian bachelor to walk the Earth in the past 2,000 years.
The Bible reminds us to remember the Sabbath and keep it holy. It makes no mention of football. But on Sundays, Americans are more likely to occupy the couch watching their favorite team than the church pew. Then along comes Tim Tebow, and we can have our faith and football, too.
Nobody knows what will come of the Tim Tebow experiment, not even those scrambling ramblers who came before him.
If the Andrew Luck hype machine shifted into overdrive, it was not his foot on the gas. If the Heisman talk got out of control, his lips weren't moving. If it was his play on the field that has made Luck into the most touted quarterback prospect in a decade, well, yeah, that one is on him.

They were Tebowing in Israel and Australia, from on top of horses and on the bottom of swimming pools. Protesters on Wall Street paused to make a pose, and so did someone underneath the billowing dress of Marilyn Monroe's statue in Chicago.
