Sad Day

Some of you may not care about this post, but I had to get this off my chest. It is a sad day in my household because Peyton Manning is going to be signing with the Broncos. Again, you may not care but I do. I am a huge Broncos fan and a huge fan and supporter of Tim Tebow. And now it is pretty much guaranteed that Tim Tebow is going to be traded.

Is this stupid to be upset about? Maybe to some of you it is, but to me it isn't. Tim Tebow is one of the first players that has had me excited about sports in a long time. Partially because I think he is gorgeous and nice to look at, but mainly because of the way that he presents himself on and off the field. In this crazy world of sports where you have athletes that are constantly getting arrested for drugs, alcohol, violence and a whole slur of other things, Tim Tebow is a breath of fresh air. Not to mention a role model.

And the work that he does through his foundation is amazing. From building a hospital in the Philippines to helping support Orphans, to bringing fans to games that are suffering from an illness or a disease, all of it is amazing. About a month or so ago he invited a little girl by the name of Presli Collins to be his date at Cartoon Networks Hall of Gamer Awards. Presli has NF1. I had no idea what it was until I heard about Tim taking this little girl to this event. But because he did, I looked it up and I now know about something that I may have never even heard about. (In case you would like to know what NF1 is, HERE is a link talking about what it is.) It is things like this that make him the amazing person that he his. He brings awareness to things that you may not have otherwise known about and changes peoples lives for the better during the process.

And without getting into to much religion talk, he is an amazing christian. I admire that about him. I think it is great to see someone put themselves out there with their religious beliefs and not care about the criticism that most people are dishing out. Or at least pretend like you don't care. I really hope one day that I can be as forward about my religion as he is.

Again, most of you probably don't care, but this has really brought my day down and so I needed to get it off of my chest. I really hope that they can figure out a way to keep him in Denver. I am and will always be a Broncos fan and I will support them, but it is hard to see one of your favorite players go, especially like this. I know that he will do great things wherever he goes and I know that I will support him wherever he goes. I have no doubt that Tebow will handle this with nothing but a positive attitude, because that is the type of guy that he is and I hope that he always will be.

  1. While I don't agree with your Tebow love I can totally understand where you are coming from. If one of my favorite players (Welker) was going to get traded I would be crushed! I will join you on the I hate Manning team though. I can't stand that guy!


Comments are way rad and totally make my day. I love reading each and everyone one of them :)
