Saturday, November 29 Spencer and I had the opportunity to join 90,905 other fans at The Swamp for Tim Tebow's last home game. It was so much fun! We played in-state rivals, Florida State, and I am glad to say that we beat them 37-10!
The whole drive up and the whole time we were there, I just kept thinking how exciting game day is. Thinking of all the fans with all their team gear, tailgate equipment and fans trying to get last minute tickets...there's just something really electrifying about being in the stadium cheering on your team.
If you look close you will see Tim Tebow taking the field for the last time at his home stadium.
I don't think I can say enough about Tim Tebow and what an awesome example we think he is for young people, his teammates and all Florida fans. He has such integrity and character. He gives God the glory for his success and uses his popularity as a platform to share his faith.
Tebow is known for his eyeblack and many fans sported some in honor of his last game. Our whole group jumped on the bandwagon! We were able to enjoy the game with some wonderful company, Spencer's brother, Travis and his g/f Claire (next to us) as well as Spencer's awesome cousin Sarah and her hubby Kevin! (below us)
I know that there has been some controversy over the scriptures that Tebow writes on his eyeblack every week, but I think it is an awesome way for him to share his faith and get people into the Word. On January 8, 2009, for the National Championship Game, he wrote John 3:16, which reads, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life." That day there were 94 million searches on Google for John 3:16.....94 MILLION!!! It was the number one search on Google that day. I don't know about you, but that is what I call spreading the good news! This website lists all of the scriptures that he has used so far this season.
We were so thankful to Spencer's parents for keeping our boys so we could get away for the whole day and to Travis and Claire for getting us awesome tickets to a great game!
"I said it's great...to be....a Florida Gator!"
