Christian Quarterback Tim Tebow To Sign With The Philadelphia Eagles

It looks like ‘Tebowing’ will be returning to the National Football League (NFL).

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, devout Christian quarterback Tim Tebow is expected to sign a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles after arriving in the City of Brotherly Love Monday, ending a two season hiatus from the NFL. Tebow is set to join the team for offseason workouts.

The quarterback last played a game in the NFL with the New York Jets, backing up Mark Sanchez in 2012–who he will rejoin in Philadelphia. He played the previous two seasons for the Denver Broncos, where he was drafted 25th overall in 2010, reaching the AFC championship in 2011. The devout Christian will not only rejoin Sanchez, but former roommate Riley Cooper.

In 2013, he was invited to training camp with the New England Patriots but was cut from the roster by Head Coach Bill Belichick before the start of the season. He has been working as an analyst for the SEC Network (a subsidiary of ESPN) since 2014, and as a commentator for ABC’s Good Morning America.

Prior to being drafted by the Broncos, Tebow captured two NCAA National Championships and won the Heisman Trophy in 2007 with the University of Florida.

As The Washington Post notes, this would add Tebow to a depth chart which includes Sam Bradford (who was acquired last month with the St. Louis Rams in a deal for Nick Foles), Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley, and G.J. Kinne.

Many have already taken to Twitter to laud the Christian athlete for his return to professional football:

Duke Basketball Coach Mike Krzyzewski Blasts Obama For Inept Foreign Policy

Duke basketball Coach Mike Krzyzewski has had quite the month of April. In the last two weeks, he has won the NCAA men’s basketball championship (for the fifth time) and received an award at an Army awards conference. To put the icing on the cake, he also slammed President Obama’s foreign policy – comparing it to him not playing two of his best players.

“I know it’s upsetting to many of you when you hear ‘no boots on the ground,’” Coach K said. “It upsets me too because that’s like saying, ‘I’m not going to play two of my best players.”

He explained the strategy behind not revealing your plans to your enemies. He joked that for coaching the U.S. olympic team, he wouldn’t say to his opponent, “I’m not going to start LeBron [James] and Kobe [Bryant].”

“It’s about letting your opponent know that we are going to use our best players,” he added. “Now whether you use them or not, that’s up to the coach. You never tell an opponent you are not going to use them.”

Coach K, a veteran from the Vietnam War, showed immense gratitude for our armed services, thanking them for providing him the freedoms to do as he chooses.

“So on behalf of the ordinary guys, the ordinary people, we love you and thank you for doing that,” Krzyzewski said.

Watch: You Could Call It ‘The Revenge Of The IronPigs’ In This Crazy Bacon Vs Broccoli Battle

It wasn’t Muslims complaining about the bacon-themed game-time menu offered by the IronPigs, a minor league baseball team in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley. And it also wasn’t Michelle Obama insisting that the goodies sold to fans had to be healthier. It was the Washington-based Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine that put pressure on the team to offer more nutritious fare to the folks at Coca-Cola Park.

As the website MILB notes, the Ironpigs decided to go ahead and add a little green to the pork-product food choices that included such fan faves as maple candied bacon on a stick. But they didn’t altogether abandon their proud bacon-rich tradition.

“…the club will begin to offer deep-fried bacon-cheddar broccoli bites filled with broccoli florets, real bacon and sweet onions in crisp potato breading….”

“We believe in bacon and think that as part of a balanced diet it is a tremendous healthy food option,” exclaimed IronPigs President and General Manager Kurt Landes. “Ultimately though, our organization is not in the business of dictating to people what they should or shouldn’t eat as that decision should be left to each individual and their family.”

Stuart Varney of the Fox Business Network spoke with Kurt Landes to learn more about the team’s preservation of the IronPigs’ tradition while giving fans a chance to score some veggies at the same time.

By the way, the theme for the IronPigs’ 2015 season is “Bacon, USA” that features a bacon-themed uniform as well as a bacon strip on-field cap. And of course, the Twitter hashtag promotional campaign is built around #SmellTheChange.

U.S. Deployed Army Sergeant Has Brilliant Surprise For His Family

Army Vet surprises parents

Last Saturday, the Arizona Coyotes were the facilitators of a heart-warming family reunion between two season ticket holders and their son from the U.S. Army.

As the Urman family trotted out to drop the ceremonious first puck, they realized they actually did not have the puck. Surprising his folks, Army Sergeant Dan Urman jogged out with the puck to meet his parents, Eitan and Ronit.

Eitan met him on the red carpet, and they embraced in a hug before tumbling to the ice as Ronit looked on in tears.
