ELK RIVER, Minn. - If Twitter traffic is any indication, there are plenty of people from coast to coast with a blazing case of "Tebow Fever."

Few, however, are bananas enough about the Broncos QB to write a song about him and post it on YouTube.

That's exactly what Kaycee Robertson did this week. The 24-year-old youth pastor at Central Lutheran Church in Elk River has been watching Tebow's ascent into the stratosphere of sporting and pop culture, and has become an unabashed admirer.

"I really respect and admire him," Robertson says.

As a youth pastor, Robertson knows a little bit about what she calls "living your faith," and she says that's exactly what Tebow goes. She says he plays and lives with boldness, conviction, and passion, qualities she greatly values.

So much, in fact, that Kaycee decided to ask Mr. Tebow on a date.

"I just want to hang out with Tim Tebow," she thought to herself. "How do I make this happen?"

So Robertson picked up her trusty acoustic guitar and wrote a song Tuesday morning, and recruited her roommates Jenny Lind and Jill Miller to sing it with her Tuesday night. They shot it and posted the date proposal video on YouTube.

So far, no phone calls from Tebow - he is preparing for this weekend's game against New England - but others are paying attention. In fact, by Thursday morning a link to Kaycee's video was on page two of ESPN.com.

Kaycee is obviously excited about the buzz her song is generating, but it's the end result that will prove whether her video "hail Mary" pass was successful.

"Get him to ask me on a date," she laughed.
