Tim Tebow recently brought a fan a piece of cake during one of his SEC Network segments, and now that fan is speaking about how the Christian athlete's actions are inspiring her faith in Jesus Christ.
Mckenzie Hoskins waited for over 24 hours to meet Tebow, who traveled to her native Tennessee where his SEC Network show visited Knoxville for a recent University of Tennessee football game. There, Hoskins was given a piece of cake from Tebow who also autographed the sign she created for him.
While she has opted to freeze the cake instead of eat it, Hoskins let it be known that Tebow's Christian faith made the dessert more meaningful for her. more >>
Benjamin Watson shared his Christian faith when expressing how upset he is about the social upheaval taking place in Ferguson, Missouri, and after attempting to share his faith on CNN, some are questioning if the network tried to stop him from glorifying the name of Jesus.
Watson, the 33-year-old New Orleans Saints' tight end, received national attention when his take on the fatal shooting of black teenager Michael Brown at the hands of a white police officer Darren Wilson went viral. In an essay posted to Facebook, Watson did not only take one side in the scenario that has caused national protesting.
Instead, the NFL player offered encouragement through Jesus Christ while letting people know that he believes sin was the issue at hand instead of just race relations. After the essay became popular with over three quarter of a million views, Watson appeared on CNN where he was interviewed by journalist Brooke Baldwin about his take on the matter. more >>
Former NFL coach Tony Dungy recently said he would welcome Ray Rice onto his team if he was still coaching.
Rice, 29, was previously suspended indefinitely when a video surfaced of him knocking his now-wife Janay Rice unconscious in a New Jersey casino. However, that suspension was officially lifted last Friday when the former Baltimore Ravens running back won an appeal.
While Rice is now eligible to return to the NFL, the news has been received with its share of backlash. Dungy, the first African-American head coach to win the Super Bowl, told NBC's "Football Night in America" that he would allow Rice to play for him if he was an NFL coach again. more >>
The St. Louis Police Officers Association is calling for the St. Louis Rams to apologize after some of its players publicly started their game by making a statement in support of slain teenager Michael Brown who was fatally shot by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer.
Rams players Stedman Bailey, Tavon Austin, Jared Cook, Chris Givens and Kenny Britt walked onto the field Sunday with their hands raised, mimicking the gestures made by those protesting 18-year-old Brown's death. Although the Rams won the game against the Oakland Raiders Sunday, the police association was "profoundly disappointed" in the actions of the NFL players' form of silent protest before the big game.
"The gesture has become synonymous with assertions that Michael Brown was innocent of any wrongdoing and attempting to surrender peacefully when Wilson, according to some now-discredited witnesses, gunned him down in cold blood," the police association said in a statement, according to CNN. more >>
After the epic showdown between Team Authority and Team Cena in WWE's Survivor Series last week, a few wrestling stars who haven't been seen in a while came back to celebrate Team Cena's win. There was Daniel Bryan, who made his triumphant return as the manager of Raw for one night. And then there was Sgt. Slaughter, who tried to get Lana and Rusev to say the Pledge of Allegiance with him.
But one star who won't be coming back anytime soon to WWE is CM Punk. On Nov. 27, the former wrestler told Colt Cabana on his "Art of Wrestling" podcast that he had been cleared to fight without seeing the doctors first, and that he was fired from the WWE on his wedding day.
CM Punk, whose real name is Phil Brooks, revealed to Cabana that the wrestling organization didn't give a serious thought to his injuries and allowed him to compete without seeing a doctor first. more >>
The wife of NFL player Ray Rice, who was knocked unconscious by her then-fiancé in an Atlantic City elevator, says the assault last February was part of God's divine plan to raise awareness for domestic abuse in America.
Although Janay Rice, formerly Janay Palmer during the time of the attack, told The Today Show's Matt Lauer on Monday that her physical altercation with Ray was just a one-time occurrence, she firmly believes that God used her and her now-husband as tools to raise awareness for the women that suffer from that kind of physical abuse on a regular basis.
"I feel like God chose me and Ray for a reason," Rice said. "It was definitely to bring awareness to what people are going through every day. more >>
