What a great story this is.* Really warms my hear to finally see things go Tebow’s way after he couldn’t get one last shot at being an NFL quarterback. Who cares that he couldn’t throw a spiral, he had heart and charisma! Plus, he has a higher power on his side.**
And I’m sure everyone remembers this was his true dream. Unfortunately he had to put it aside in high school so he could play another sport that offers more money and generally promotes a higher stature in society. It was a major sacrifice on his part. I’m not certain, but I feel like that at least puts him in the conversation for sainthood.
If you ask me, I’d make him the first living saint. He probably wouldn’t accept the title though because that’s not why he’s the man he is today. All the attention he gets and the money, all of that is something he could live without.
What I hope and pray doesn’t get lost in all this is Tebow gets the chance to rub shoulders with the likes of Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette. Someday we’ll all look back and remember how these three prospects shared the field together before they went on to become prolific names in the great and wondrous game of baseball.
Could not think of a better way to start my weekend!
* (If the pitchers in this game don’t blow his doors off every time he gets up to the plate, they better be shipped to Antarctica. Everyone else in this game is a prospect. This man should not log a frigin foul-tip in this game.)
** (I’m actually starting to think he actually has someone upstairs pulling for him hardcore because I never would’ve guessed he’d do this well. He still sucks, but I’ll admit he’s far exceeded my expectations.)
P.S. To everyone who felt the need to notify me about this, thank you. I can’t imagine a life without friends who want to remind me that my favorite baseball player continues his ascension to the big leagues.
