Lindsey Vonn goes Tebowing after win in US

Lindsey Vonn went “Tebowing” after her World Cup win yesterday. What is Tebowing? It’s the fad of taking a knee in reflection, named after Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow.

Downhill champ Lindsey Vonn had never won a World Cup race in the United States. Until yesterday.

But of course, that’s not the story.

The real story is that when she reached the podium, she went Tebowing.

In fact, the brother of Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow was on hand for the race at Beaver Creek’s Birds of Prey course in Colorado, joining what the Denver Post labeled Lindsey’s “Vonntourage.” And the World Cup champion made sure with Robby Tebow that the “Tebowing” celebration was OK.

“This is my first ski race,” Tebow said. “It was awesome. I told her I’m her good luck charm, because this is the first time she’s won in America.”

Clearly, divine intervention.

Vonn is in the midst of a divorce, but claimed she is not dating Tebow, who reportedly “spent a few minutes chatting with him in a VIP tent after her winner’s press conference.”

All Tebow, all the time.
