What the Heck Is ‘Tebowing’? [PHOTOS]

Since being drafted by the Denver Broncos in the 2010 NFL Draft, Tim Tebow has been one of the most talked-about quarterbacks in professional football — and after leading the team to a fourth-quarter comeback against the Miami Dolphins last week, he’s hotter than ever.

It wasn’t enough for Tebow to take over the Broncos offense — now he’s taking over the 2011 photo meme craze that gave us planking, stocking, horsemaning and batmanning. That’s right, folks: We’ve moved on to Tebowing.

As one of the most openly religious players in the NFL, Tim Tebow is known for taking a knee and praying during games.

So what’s Tebowing, you ask? It’s simple: all you have to do is take a knee and lean your head forward onto your hand, as if deep in thought or prayer. Even if everyone else is acting normal, drop and take a knee in silent reflection. Then have someone take a picture, upload it to the internet, and voila! You, my friend, have just Tebowed.

Take a look at some examples — and start planning your own.
