1 » The Tim Tebow Foundation announced Wednesday that they will be building a brand new children’s hospital in the Philippines in conjunction with CURE International. “I was born in the Philippines and my parents have been missionaries to that area since 1985. The Philippines have always had a special place in my heart,” Tim Tebow said in the official press release. “I’m excited to be a part of this hospital that will bring healing to thousands of children who would not otherwise have access to care.” Construction costs for the hospital, located in Davao City and featuring a 30-bed surgical facility as well as a Timmy’s Playroom (which provides faith, hope and love to children before and after their surgeries), are expected to be around $3 million. Groundbreaking will take place in January 2012 with an expected completion date of mid-2013.

2 » NFL.com reporter Jeff Darlington tackled two stories on the former Florida Gators now Denver Broncos quarterback this week. The first consisted of Darlington spending time with Denver head coach John Fox, who explained how and why he is tailoring his offense to better fit Tebow. The other, including thoughts from NFL players who are fans of Tebow, focuses on the thousands of Tebow haters who claim that the quarterback’s faith and how he expresses it are the main reasons they dislike him.

He’s a competitor. He’s not a quitter. He’s a winner. He wants to get better. […] He’s a great person.”

4 » In the second Taiwanese animation to feature Tebow, the video below features a recap of his entire life as opposed to the first one, which focused on his come-from-behind victory against the Miami Dolphins a few weeks ago. It appears as if Next Media Animation got positive reviews of their first attempt and decided to provide their viewers with some background this time around.

    Its amazing how the majority of the NFL players who blast Tebow and his faith are the ones who end up blowing all their money on booze, strippers,etc. and will likely end their careers tied up in bankruptcy.
