Fans of the Denver Broncos have seen their team start the season with a 1-4 record, go through a Quarterback change, witness a Miracle in Miami and four other comeback wins to raise their record to 7-5. Knowing that, one would think they have seen it all. But no. Not only did that new Quarterback, Tim Tebow, set the entire National Football League on end, he unknowingly started a new fad by simply being himself. Tebow's act of faith, to get down on a knee and start praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different, was posted to the Internet and gone viral. This genuflection was coined "Tebowing" and is all the rage.
Another characteristic that Tim Tebow is known for, was wearing Biblical verses written on the Eye Black during football games at the University of Florida. Eye Black is a grease applied under the eyes to reduce the sun's glare. Well hold on to your helmets kids, because, EyeBlack.com, a leading manufacturer of innovative sports products, today unveiled its line of "Tebowing" EyeBlack (as seen below the fold).
While it violates NFL rules to wear verses, messages or logos other than officially licensed products and the NCAA sanctioned a ban on eye black messages, ironically called "the Tebow Rule" in February of 2010, these Eye Blacks can be worn by football players from the Pop Warner through the High School level. Bronco fans can even wear them on game day. Plus they will benefit the Tim Tebow Foundation.
EyeBlack.com has created 500 pairs of the original line of Tebowing EyeBlack and they can only be purchased by calling 301-816-1980 Ext. 205. The special edition product is being sold in packs of 20 pairs for $25. For each pair of Tebowing EyeBlack sold, EyeBlack.com will donate 10% to the foundation created by the Denver Broncos quarterback, whose mission is to inspire and make a difference in the lives of underserved people throughout the world.
"Tebowing has become quite a phenomenon this football season," said Peter Beveridge, president of EyeBlack.com. "It made perfect sense for us to create this product which we hope will help benefit an organization that is doing wonderful things around the globe."
According to the company, the eye black products are made from latex free medical grade tape that is safe, tested and can breathe on the skin.
