The Muslims who changed the course of NFL history
You all remember that billboard in Denver that demanded the Broncos start Tim Tebow? It looked like this:
Those pictures rotated, or so I read, on a digital display. The sign started showing those images in September.
So who put up the billboard?
Tariq, Ali, and Mohammad Suleimans, three Muslim brothers from Denver, are responsible. Tebow, as most fans know, is a devout Christian who prays so visibly during games that his kneeling worship — “Tebowing” — has become a national craze.
Mohammad Suleiman, 26, became aware of failed efforts to raise funds to put up a billboard supporting Tebow’s increased role. Unlike other Broncos fans, Mohammad had the connections to make it happen.
They work at the firm that owns the billboard. Their father owns and runs the firm.
…Fans began filling the parking lot near the billboard to take pictures.
“We had someone call us and say, ‘You guys single-handedly changed the course of the Broncos,’” said Tariq, 30. “Not that we’re agreeing, of course.”
The brothers are third-generation Coloradans and obviously diehard Broncos fans. All three attended the same high school and own degrees from the University of Colorado, according to the Washington Times.
I guess the question is: how devout are the Suleimans?
And the point we should all take away is: if we want world peace, give the world more football.
