   Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow's prayerful kneel pose is inspiring new terminology.  The Global Language Monitor says the term "tebowing" has been accepted into the English language as an official word.  It's described as the act of "taking a knee" in prayerful reflection in the midst of athletic activity. 
   The Global Language monitor said it made it a word because of ESPN's frequent use of the term on its broadcasts and growing popularity of the term.  Tebowing.com, a website dedicated to people posing in the so-called "tebowing position," has also helped the term go viral.
