Tim Tebow, Stephen Tulloch and the latest craze

Posted October 31, 2011

Before Thursday, I'd never heard of the art of "Tebowing" - posing in a manner not unlike Tim Tebow does when he takes a knee in prayer on the sidelines.

Now, it's everywhere.

Much like the recent "planking" craze, people are taking pictures of themselves "Tebowing" all over the world, and posting them on the Internet.

It's creating such a stir even the Wall Street Journal has chimed in, interviewing the founder of Tebowing.com.

Still, it didn't dawn on me this craze was so widespread until I saw highlights of the Broncos-Lions game.

CBS sends its affiliates brief highlight packages from all the major games, and we generally take our plays from them. I'd heard Tulloch did something funny, and since he went to NC State I took a look.

Here's what I found: Tulloch "Tebows" after sacking Tebow.

Talk about life imitating art.

Tulloch told reporters after the game he meant no disrespect, and Tebow reportedly sought Tulloch out to "wish him luck."

This really speaks to the massive power of the Internet. In a matter of days - sometimes even hours - an idea can spread globally. As recently as a decade ago, it would have taken weeks or more for the same kind of viral growth to occur.

The world really is a smaller place now. Of course, cavemen probably thought something along those lines after the wheel came into play.
