Tim Tebow Mania is sweeping the south, including of all places, Alabama. House bill No. 440 — nicknamed the Tim Tebow Bill — is currently working its way through the Alabama legislature.
The bill calls for allowing home-schooled students equal access to sports and extracurricular activities at public schools.
The bill is named after Tebow because he was a home-schooled student who played football at Florida's Nease High. A bill similar to the Alabama measure was passed in Florida in 1996, clearing the way for Tebow and other home-schoolers to play for public high schools.
Tebow Mania doesn't stop there. Andy Staples of the Tampa Tribune reports that a website has been created titled Tim Tebow Facts, "which are essentially an homage to a popular Internet tribute to actor Chuck Norris with Tebow's name substituted for Norris'." Among the facts: "Tim Tebow once got Blackjack with one card."
