Tebowing his way through South America


Mario tebowing at Congonhas

Some people take a small stuffed toy or a garden gnome to use in pictures of their travels.

But not Mario. He’s got himself and his tebowing! What’s tebowing, you ask?

It’s an act of dropping to one knee and bowing one’s head in prayer. Tim Tebow, a professional American footballer, started it. He is proud of his religion and often makes this gesture/movement on the playing field.

It’s become so popular that a whole website is devoted to pictures of people tebowing the world over.

Mario, who is from Switzerland, doesn’t care about the religious aspect of tebowing, but he likes the idea of being able to mark each place he goes with the same pose.

So I’m sharing a couple of the pics I’ve shot of him in action in Brazil. I’m sure there will be more.


Not that easy to tebow in a kayak

    I love his sense of humour! Kudos for the pose on a kayak, Mario!

    I’ll work on my tebowing skills but it won’t be nearly as impressive as that. 🙂

      It’s a lot of fun to see all his tebow poses. Look forward to seeing some of your ‘moves’.
