As a football fan in general and a Denver Broncos fan in particular, I was elated to see our home team select Florida’s Tim Tebow with the number 25 overall pick in last night’s NFL draft. Dusting the snow off our local papers in our driveway this morning, I was greeted with the following headlines in my Denver Post and Colorado Springs Gazette:
“Professing Faith: McDaniels Makes His Tenure-Defining Choice in Florida QB”
“Mr. Eye Black A Black Eye?”
Sports coverage around the country is echoing a similar theme.
