CHARLESTON, S.C. The rivalry between two South Carolina high schools boiled over after a basketball match, with two fans of the victorious side reportedly beaten up by opposition supporters for "Tebowing."

The Wando High School pair were attacked after their school had inflicted a 20-point defeat on West Ashley High in Charleston, during which they had copied the Denver Broncos quarterback's iconic prayer pose, The Post and Courier reported Saturday.

I guess this wouldn’t be considered “bullying” since it appears that the two Tebowers aren’t “gay” (homosexual).

Does not jibe with the headline.

Where is the American Center for law and justice? This is religious discrimination.

There was a near riot after a b-ball game at my high school years back. City cops, county cops, college cops all trying to stop the war.

They used mace back then. Terrible stuff...really ...

It is also not a hate crime for the same reason.

No. You stop the beatings. If you stop all rivalries between all schools, there would be no school sports.

The Liberals amongst us would say the obvious cause of this problem was that one team was allowed to humiliate the other by winning. Henceforward, they should stop the game when one team has scored once, and the crowd should for a “Tunnel of Affirmation” and salute the loosers for trying so hard!

It’s called praying, not Tebowing.

My left leaning brother laughed at this story last night and then said Tebow should have been aborted. It’s a shame Tebow gets so much hate thrown his way, I don’t think he’s a good QB, but he seems like a genuine good guy and pro life advocate and that’s why the left hates him.
