The Problem with Tim Tebow
Let me start by saying that I am absolutely on the Tim Tebow bandwagon. I’ve been following this guy since college, and while I did agree to some extent with the many analysts who doubted his ability to be a top-flight quarterback in the NFL, I’ve always wanted to see him succeed. I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that it is extremely difficult not to root for this guy. He...

Those of us who have been blessed with so much yet turn a blind eye to the have-nots of this...
