Nats' Prospect Bryce Harper Joins The Tebowing Trend

Tuesday November 1st, 2011

Washington Nationals mega-prospect Bryce Harper has joined the fold and tweeted a picture of himself “Tebowing.”

As of last week, “Tebowing” has replaced planking as the newest internet craze and was defined by the Wall Street Journal as “to get down on a knee and start praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different.”

While the fad may die down after Tim Tebow’s sub-par performance this week against the Detroit Lions, for at least a week it was the most popular thing on the internet to do. Even Tebow himself acknowledged the trend, and shared via twitter some of his favorite renditions of the act. Harper, the 19-year-old former No. 1 overall pick by the Washington Nationals, is a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints.
