South Carolina Teenagers Claim They Were Beaten Up For Tebowing

Raise your hand if you saw this coming.

The two teenage fans were punched and kicked — one to the point of vomiting — as they walked outside after the game, which ended in a 20-point rout by Wando. Neither required hospitalization.

A mother of one victim thinks West Ashley students felt taunted when Wando fans participated in the act of “Tebowing,” in which the participant mimics the Denver Broncos quarterback by dropping to a knee and placing a wrist to the chin. A 17-year-old Wando fan told the police that as he and a friend left the gym and began walking through a breezeway, those West Ashley fans jumped them.

The inevitable next step: Tebow reaches out to the kids who were beaten – perhaps he’ll make an appearance in South Carolina next month, when his season is over? – and everyone cheers Tebow (again) for being such a nice guy. Well, everyone except the haters on the internet, who grumble about how much media coverage Tebow’s trip to South Carolina generates. [Post & Courier via Joe Wright]
