24 years ago Tim Tebow was born in The City of Makati in the Philippines. Tebow’s parents were working as Baptist missionaries when he was born on August 14th 1987 in the Makati Medical Center.
Although he has become one of the most polarizing figures in sports, Tebow is yet to be well known in his place of birth according to ThePostGame.com:
Gonzalez, one of six government officials contacted, noted that not one person at Makati City Hall so much as recognized Tebow’s name.
“No one here has heard of him,” said Gonzalez. “Is he a current player? Of course it is exciting for us now you have told us about this, and we will look it up. If someone from our city is successful it is something for us to celebrate. I am sure once people begin to realize he is from Makati they will start to follow him in his sporting endeavors.”
Not knowing who Tebow is in America would be near impossible. Whether you have seen a friend “Tebowing“, watched the skit on SNL, or have tuned into any sports station in the last three months. You have no choice but to know exactly who Tim Tebow is.
While under center for the Denver Broncos, Tebow recently won six games in a row. In that span he threw seven touchdowns and just one interception.
In his last game vs. the Buffalo Bills he threw three interceptions and just one touchdown.
