Even Lady Gaga is impressed by Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow jumps into the crowd to celebrate his game-winning touchdown pass in his first playoff game (MARC PISCOTTY / Reuters)

How big a deal was it when Tim Tebow threw an 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play of overtime to send the Denver Broncos to a game next week against the New England Patriots?

It was so big that even Lady Gaga tweeted about it (with a bleep). So did some of Tebow’s former opponents, athletes and others.
