'Tebowing' to appear in 'Madden 13'

BY foxsports • May 20, 2012

"Tebowing" has made its way to "Madden NFL 13," according to the game's creative director Mike Young.

Young made the announcement on his Twitter account, but it was not clear when or how the popular kneeling pose -- inspired by Jets quarterback and devout Christian Tim Tebow, who is known for dropping to one knee in prayer -- will be used in the EA Sports game.

Tebowing, which also requires placing a fist on your forehead, has been mimicked across the world and spawned a website where people can submit pictures of themselves striking the pose.

The game is set to be released on Aug. 28, with Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson on the cover.
