At some point you'd think we'd get embarrassed with the amount of praise we're heaping on Florida Gators quarterback and God enthusiast Tim Tebow.

But whenever that thought creeps into our minds, we remember we're part of the media. And drinking the Tebow Kool-Aid is what the media does.

Timmy's latest stunt took place today at halftime of the Florida-Arkansas basketball game when he stood at center court and dramatically ripped off the sling that had been cradling his right arm.
"Tebow, the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner, ripped off his sling at the end of a brief speech at halftime of the Arkansas-Florida basketball game in an effort to assure Gators fans he would be fine following surgery on his non-throwing shoulder.

"Don't worry about this. I'll be fine," Tebow said as he pulled off the sling.

You may remember Tebow's announcement that he was coming back for his senior season. He was at a pep rally and heading off the stage before he dropped this little gem.



Stunt? Maybe. But he sure knows how to work a room.
