If you're on a bike ride on the South Platte trail and you see the below wheat paste, what do you do? Naturally, you post that on reddit. Found by reddit user missjenviolin, it can be seen on the "South Platte trail near Mile High and Elitch's. There is a side street that goes under I-25 and this was on the pillar along with a bunch of other scripture."

The wheat paste is the now sort-of iconic image of Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow doing this religious kneeling gesture that TV cameras zoom in on like flies to honey. Next to the image is a sheet of paper plastered on the wall that reads: "Dear Lord. How many hail mary's [sic] can a Virgin throw? TEBOW 1:11"
