It appears “Tebowing” is here to stay.
The Global Language Monitor website says it acknowledges that the word Tebowing — the act of taking a knee in prayer during an athletic contest — is now part of the English language.
In today’s online world, that’s practically the equivalent of gaining acceptance to Webster’s Dictionary.
A press release from the website says the quick acceptance and use of Tebowing “has seldom been equaled, mirroring, for example, the rate of adoption of the word Obamamania in early 2008.”
Tim Tebow got the word going on Oct. 23, when famously he took a knee after his Denver Broncos completed a dramatic comeback victory against Miami in overtime.
And let’s also give Tebowing.com some credit for helping the term go viral.
Now then, what are the chances of Suh-ing catching on as a term for outbursts of anger?
