Tim Tebow invited to give prayer
DENVER -- Can Tim Tebow's blessing inspire Colorado lawmakers? One state representative thinks so.
Democratic Rep. Sal Pace sent a letter Friday to the Broncos quarterback inviting him to lead the House in the daily morning prayer before lawmakers start work. Pace said in the letter that Tebow is an excellent choice to "give Colorado's elected officials guidance as we take on the important task of leading Colorado."
Jeremy Schaap says no matter what happens in the rest of the playoffs, Tim Tebow is the biggest winner in the NFL this season.
"You have inspired Colorado. You have inspired America!" Pace wrote. "Throughout your career you have consistently proven the naysayers wrong."
The morning prayer at the Capitol's House and Senate is led every day by different people of all faiths.
Colorado lawmakers have been going gaga over the Broncos this week leading up to the team's divisional playoff showdown with the New England Patriots on Saturday. How has Broncos- and Tebow-mania gripped the state Capitol?
Shout out from Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper during State of State speech? Check.
Broncos jerseys and other gear? Check.
Waving of Broncos' team towel? Check.
"By leading the Denver Broncos into the playoffs, and giving us our first playoff victory in six years, you have given all of Colorado something to cheer about, in times that have been filled with all too often negative news," Pace said in the letter.
Pace said the House has several dates available for Tebow to choose from.
"Our schedule is flexible, as we do not want to take you away from any practice prior to the AFC Championship game or Super Bowl," Pace wrote while making the assumption that the Broncos will pull off another upset this weekend.
