Chuck Norris is a legend in the martial arts, and has a long list of film and television credits to fall back on as well. Norris is not an expert on football or more importantly, the art of playing quarterback.
Things have been quiet in regards to Tebow mania for a few days now, but Norris has chosen to ratchet all that discussion back up.
Norris took time out of his schedule to write a 1,500 word blog post for the non-profit website Newsbusters, and in it, he took time to explain why “Tebow is so clutch, and how Tebow reminds Norris of himself.”
“Tebow is a player who rises to the occasion and delivers big in critical game moments.”
“He reminds me of myself when I used to compete in martial arts. I would spar with my black belts in class, and sometimes they would outscore me. Yet in the tournaments, I would defeat them. My students used to ask me, ‘Why can we contend equally against you in class, but we can’t beat you in the tournaments?’ My answer was always the same, ‘When it counts, I rise to the occasion.’ The same is true of the former Heisman Trophy winner: When pressure mounts and the game is on the line, Tim’s turbo turns on!”
