Okay, now it's official. Everyone on planet Earth is talking about Tim Tebow. Before, it was just sports fans, sorority girls, ESPN analysts, every barbershop in America, and, your mom talking about Tebow. But now the last piece of the puzzle has helped Tebowmania come full circle. The Catholic Church is talking about him! And they're doing it in reference to the renewed sense of faith that Manny Pacquiao has been feeling. Apparently, Pacman has openly talked about his faith recently, which has prompted the Catholic Church to ask him to be a Bible ambassador in the his native Philippines—and to be a little bit more like Tebow.
"Tim Tebow became very popular by promoting the word of God," Bishop Pablo Virgilio David of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines bible ministry said recently. "Some have referred to Manny Pacquiao as the Tim Tebow of the Philippines."
Thus far, Pacquiao hasn't said whether or not he'll accept the position. He has, however, said that it'll take a modern-day miracle or an act of God to get him and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. into the same ring. Er, okay, Just kidding. But we're beginning to think that's what it might take. In the meantime, we'll keep praying, Tebowing, and doing whatever else it'll take to make it happen.
