‘Tebowing’ Officially Enters the English Language

Even the world's dictionaries could soon be forced to take note of Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. The Global Language Monitor announced Monday that it acknowledges that the word "Tebowing" has officially entered the English language.
The website, which monitors global language trends, said in a statement to USA Today that the rapid rise of "Tebowing" as a word "has seldom been equaled, mirroring, for example, the rate of adoption of the word Obamamania in early 2008." "Tebowing" officially entered the lexicon of Americans after the immensely popular Tebow led a comeback victory over the Miami Dolphins in his first start of the season on Oct. 23.
The deeply religious Tebow's end-of-game kneel-down was quickly mimicked across the world and spawned Tebowing.com, a website to which people can submit pictures of themselves striking the pose.
Images have come in from "Tebowers" in China and Germany and US troops in Afghanistan.
