DENVER (CBS Denver) – As Tim Tebow is – improbably – one step closer to the edge of Super Bowl glory, he has gained an unlikely fan: Lady Gaga.

Minutes after Tebow led the Denver Broncos to an overtime upset of the Pittsburgh Steelers on Wild-Card Weekend, the international pop star praised the polarizing quarterback on Twitter for another exhilarating win. Tebow would throw an 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play in overtime to clinch a date with the New England Patriots next week.

“Giants fan but wow,” she tweeted. “#Tebow Thats what the [expletive] a champion looks like.”

The tweet from Gaga, who has more than 17.8 million Twitter followers and is usually not thought of in the same light as the Broncos quarterback, is another example of how far-reaching Tebow’s performance has on people from all walks of life.

It was also a good day of football for the pop star. Her Giants won their first home playoff game since 2000, downing the Atlanta Falcons, 24-2.

After lending her support to Tebow, Gaga vowed to make boeuf bourguignon. Whether the dish was in the shape of Tebow bowing on one knee remains unclear.

    how is Tim Tebow polarizing???? I think the msm is polarizing. Who the hell is he supposed to be polarizing? We all love him, is that polarizing?

  4. Sam Deakins says:

    Polarizing? I think that word might be more indicative of GagGag then Mr Tebow.

  5. Spencer David says:

    I am not sure what is meant by the term Polarizing. Can Denver CBS explain? Has a survey been conducted showing how the nation is split on Tebow? Who has been polarized? Has he taken a city hostage and forced them to live according to his ideals? Seriously, are you people trying to make news out of nothing?

  6. John says:

    Tim Tebow is NOT polarizing. The Christ Hating Left Wing Media that calls Tebow “polarizing” is the real polarizing force in our society. Now knock it off!

  7. Steven hunt says:

    Tim tebow is anything but polarizing. The polarizing force in our country is the left wing media who can’t stand even mentioning God

  8. Mark says:

    Perhaps Lady GaGa will repent, and become a Christian. Let’s pray for her.

  9. Ken says:

    These comments are hilarious. The vast majority of them are outraged that the writer would dare to call Tebow “polarizing,” then immediately attacks “The Christ Hating Left Wing Media.” That sounds pretty polarizing to me.

    Just a quick heads up: not everyone is a conservative. There are a lot of liberals too.
