How Tebow puts losses into perspective

The Wall Street Journal has an interesting story today on how "Tebow balances football, philanthropic work."


There's a quarterback Tim Tebow can't wait to meet while in Buffalo for a pivotal late-season game. A special guest showing up at his request.

And no, it's not Bills great Jim Kelly.

Tebow is bringing in Jacob Rainey, a highly touted prep player from a private school in Virginia who had part of his right leg amputated after suffering a severe knee injury during a fall scrimmage.

Tebow is looking forward to chatting with Rainey before and again after the Denver Broncos' game against the Bills on Saturday.

For as dedicated as Tebow is about improving on the field, he's just as devoted to his engagements off it.
That's why losses really don't linger. He's already turned the page after falling 41-23 to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on Sunday.

"I'll move on and continue to be positive and everything," Tebow said Tuesday.

As if he knows any other way.
