One Robert Bell, Republican, took a knee after his bill to allow homeschooled children to play for their local high-school sports teams passed. It was the third time he'd introduced the bill, but the first time he'd dubbed it the "Tebow" bill. (Tim Tebow is a young man who was homeschooled and played football for a Florida high-school team. We hear he may still be playing football?) One presumes the bill's opponents Brady-ed on the floor after the vote count. Just as the Founding Fathers dreamed.
