Even Tim Tebow Not Safe From Rookie Hazing
Tim Tebow might be an especially hyped, especially decorated rookie, but he's still a rookie. And rookies get colorful haircuts from veterans. So it follows that the Broncos' senior statesmen would give the devout Tebow a tonsure.
We, however, thought it was interesting that teammates gave Tebow a tonsure that, according to our exhaustive research, originated among Catholics, whereas Tebow grew up with a much different form of Christianity.
We also liked that what remained of Tebow's hair was clearly specifically styled/gelled in front, while that exhaustive research we mentioned before that tonsure came into existence as "a symbol of...renunciation of worldly fashion and esteem." Irony!
No matter, though: it's the effort/adherence to NFL tradition that counts. The Broncos get their laughs, and Tebow wins their respect by no doubt taking it in good humor. If his pro experience is anything like his college days, he'll have the entire league's undying adoration soon enough, anyway.
