In case you were running a little short on reasons to love Tim Tebow, here's just one more for you. While training for the New York Mets, Tim was asked about whether his off-the-field activities - including a broadcasting career and numerous charity activities - would hurt his ability to be successful on the field?
His answer...... lets just say it made me sit and think really long and hard about what I am doing with my life!
"Not at all. I find all of those things help me so much more in playing sports, in playing baseball, than I could possibly imagine because what we do with the Night to Shine and the worldwide prom for people with special needs and seeing lives being changed in 11 countries and really all around the world when you are able to celebrate them and let them know they are special and someone realizes for the first time that they are loved and walk down a red carpet, that can be life changing.
So to be able to be part of that and see that and now be able to take that mindset to a field because so much of handling sports is handling pressure but what pressure do you have if you are 0 for 12 and you are at the plate versus someone that is fighting for their life versus someone that we picked up on the side of the street in Haiti because they are crippled and they are not wanted and they are thrown to the garbage. How do you compare those things?
For me, there is not a comparison and that's why you are able to handle sports as a game because it still is."
