I see countless athletes from all sports, both professional and amateur make religious gestures before, during and after sporting events. Tebow is not the first nor will he be the last. Why the media has decided to hone in on him is regrettable. The man has been pre judged prior to having a real chance to prove himself as either a success or failure in the NFL.
The reason is plain, watch any MLB game and you'll see countless Latino players crossing themselves or doing the Big Poppy "Sign to the Lord"....but if that was pointed out by a TV announcer 'OLY Hell would break out with screams of racist charges.
