Tim Tebow was on the Daily Show last night with a brand new tagline: Author. If you haven't heard, by way of the book's trailer (this is a thing that is apparently done quite regularly now) or his Colorado-to-Florida book tour, the 23-year-old quarterback has released his first-quarter-of-life memoir:
Now, in Through My Eyes, Tebow brings readers everywhere an inspirational memoir about life as he chose to live it, revealing how his faith and family values, combined with his relentless will to succeed, have molded him into the person that he is today. As the son of Christian missionaries, Tebow has a unique story to tell-from the circumstances of his birth, to his home-schooled roots, to his record-setting collegiate football career with the Florida Gators and everything else that took place in between.
At every step, Tebow's life has defied convention and expectation. While aspects of his life have been well-documented, the stories have always been filtered through the opinions and words of others. Through My Eyes is his passionate, firsthand, never-before-told account of how it all really happened.
Perhaps the most controversial topic in the book is his take on whether or not college athletes should be paid for their services. That's not exactly a bold statement, as I imagine that the only other possible section competing for that title would be his work in the child circumcision field, and we already know everything we ever want to know about that ordeal.
