Tim Tebow Goes Yard To Keep This Charade Going
Tim Tebow, New York Mets prospect, had his first minor league baseball game yesterday. I didn’t expect to be blogging this morning about the former Heisman trophy and first round NFL Draft pick, but here we are. Tebow hit an opposite field two-run homer in his first at-bat of his minor league baseball career. The media has already lost its collective shit on this one because like anything else Tebow does, it’s still a big deal to people. One home run in a minor league game isn’t a sign that a player is going to be a top notch prospect either so maybe we should all settle down.

Tebow batted seventh in the order and went 1-for-5 with three strikeouts so while the homer is fun, he made limited contact the rest of the night. You can call me a hater if you want, but I’m mad that in 2017, we’re still talking Tebow. Do you think Skip Bayless watched this with the lights off yesterday and felt a little tingle? Not a boner, you animals, but the fact he gets a reason to talk Tebow tomorrow made him so excited.
