GLENDALE, AZ – Dearly beloved, we are gathered here in Glendale, Arizona to celebrate the Fall League debut of Tim “The Miracle” Tebow.
The publicity stunt of the footballer turned New York Mets player had a less than impressive start for the Scottsdale Scorpions. He was 0-3 at the plate.
Unfortunately, the most solid contact Tebow made with anything was when he face-planted the leftfield wall in the fifth inning. But what Miracle Boy didn’t do on the field, he made up for in the stands following the game.
Here’s the play by play:
Tebow’s getting his usual heckle from the fans, and after today’s performance…. who can blame them? What’s this? A fan just went down, in the stands. I repeat, a fan had a seizure and is on the ground. ‘The Miracle’ Tebow places his hands upon the fan. Now, we can’t hear the action but we think Tebow is probably saying something like, “Please God heal this man.”
That’s not exactly what he said, but after praying over the man, the seizure stopped and the man stood up as if an angel was with him. Wow!
The man gasped for breath and came to, according to reporter Kari Van Horn.
“They’re going to take good care of you, buddy,” Tebow told the man as an EMT evaluated him.
Tebow chatted with the man, identified as Brandon, and found out he was a University of Georgia fan – the rival school of Tebow’s alma mater, the University of Florida.
“You’re a Bulldog? You’re kidding me,” Tebow smiled. “Don’t even know how to respond to that.”
With Brandon in good care, Tebow shook his hand and said “God bless you, buddy,” before trotting toward the team bus.
Now if only there was an angel on the field. Everyone’s day would have been so blessed.
