Dwight Howard joins 'Tebowing' craze

The latest pose-and-take-a-picture craze to hit the internet is known as "Tebowing."

Named after former University of Florida and current Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, it follows in the well-travelled footsteps of planking, a practice by which the planker lays down flat on his or her stomach somewhere funny and takes a picture.

Contrary to some reports, Tebowing does not refer to holding onto the football too long and unnecessarily taking a sack. Instead, the Tebower simply poses for a picture by getting down on one knee while clutching a fist to the head, so as to bow down in prayer at a random moment. Tebow, a deeply religious Christian, is known to strike the pose pretty much whenever he gets the chance during football games.

Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard, who engaged in a fairly epic planking war with teammate Gilbert Arenas this summer, has wasted no time in getting in on the newest craze, snapping a picture of himself kneeling and praying in a restaurant and uploading it to Twitter. Howard, like Tebow, is a devout Christian.
 
Ironically, Howard has Magic fans down on their knees praying that he won't force his way out of Orlando via trade during the 2011-2012 season or bolt to a bigger market during the summer 2012 free agency period.

Dwight Howard joins 'Tebowing' craze

This is the most stupid and idiotic craze I have heard besides planking. First of all, people are making a mockery out of it. This is suppose to be praying to Jesus for some type of request. Instead some idiot decided to call it "Tebowing", NFL players have been doing this for years. I've seen many players doing it before games, on the sidelines but for some reason people are so obsessed with Tim Tebow that they decided to give it a name. It's called kneeling before God and asking for something. It's great Tim is a Christian and does that but people making  a mockery out of it is pretty pathetic.

The funniest thing about this article is the picture where it appears to be a dude wearing a dress. If that's a chick, she's some manly... Howard is possibly pulling a Eddie Murphy and snatching up some transvestites.

"Tebow, a deeply religious Christian, is known to strike the pose pretty much whenever he gets the chance during football games."

    So, if by "whenever he gets a chance", you mean after tds or big wins, then yeah, I guess that is accurate.
