Meh. I was a "Teboner" last year, during the Streak.
Remember the Streak?
I'm sure not hiding. Or pretending I wasn't in Timmah's corner last year.
Thing is, 'Teboners" came in several flavors:
- the "Super Teboner": either a) a Gator fan who ported over to Bronco Nation in the spring of '10, or b) some flavor of hyper Christian, falling into the sin of idolatry.
These "Super Teboner" "fans" really fit the definition: "fanattics". They were (and are) the noisy minority, the ones that can still be heard chanting "Tebow.. Tebow!!" in the background of Jets telecasts.. They'll never go away, but they're really quite harmless..
- the majority of us "Teboners" were pessimistically optimistic, and "bought in" as the Streak lumbered into it's second month. At the end of the day, the kid just kept on finding a way. Hi teammates bought in, the vast majority of Bronco Nation bought in.
It was fun.
