Tim Tebow Not Bothered By Lions’ Celebrations

Thursday November 3rd, 2011

Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow said on Wednesday that he was not bothered by Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch striking a prayerful pose known as “Tebowing” after a sack last week, according to ESPN.

Tebow figures Tulloch was just having fun and was not mocking him or his faith, according to ESPN.

"He was just celebrating, having fun with his teammates and I don't take offense to that," Tebow said.

Tulloch’s pose was an imitation of a moment after the Broncos’ win over the Miami Dolphins two weeks ago, when TV cameras caught Tebow kneeling in reflection. The moment has since become an internet sensation.
