Flashback: Watch 'the Most Tebow Thing' Ever as Tim Turns Bad Language into Something Great

Editor’s Note: Our readers responded strongly to this story when it originally ran; we’re re-posting it here in case you missed it.

When you think of Tim Tebow, several prominent characteristics immediately come to mind.

He’s obviously athletic, seeing as how he led the Florida Gators to two national titles, took home the Heisman Trophy and won an NFL playoff game, and now is carving out a professional baseball career.

He’s obviously caring, based on the tremendous charity work he does, much of it through his Tim Tebow Foundation.

He’s obviously ambitious, since he can’t seem to sit still, whether it’s working on an upcoming movie or hosting a television show.

And, apparently, he’s also quite the romantic.

What’s not nearly as obvious, however, is that Tebow has a sharp wit and a brilliant sense of comedic timing.

Take, for instance, this video clip of Tebow dropping a great zinger while swinging away at a Top Golf in Atlanta with the crew of “The Pat McAfee Show.” Tebow was there Friday for the Wrangler Celebrity Charity Shootout.

Ty Schmit — “Schmitty” — is the producer for “The Pat McAfee Show,” and he was watching Tebow blast a golf ball. While video of the shot doesn’t show how well Tebow hit it, Schmitty’s reaction to it was telling.

“Jesus …” Schmitty could be heard saying. Now, to be clear, for Christians, taking the Lord’s name in vain is very much a bad thing.

That being said, Tebow didn’t miss a beat to correct Schmitty.

“… loves you,” he responded without breaking from his golf swing.

It was enough to elicit a hearty laugh from podcast host and former NFL punter Pat McAfee, who was watching the whole thing unfold.

The timing and the deadpan delivery made for comedic gold. One Twitter user called it “the most Tim Tebow thing I’ve ever heard.”

McAfee even admitted that despite watching the video numerous times, he still laughs at Tebow’s retort.


Leave it to Tim Tebow to turn an exclamation of bad language into a hilarious and positive moment.
