Tim Tebow’s back at it. Making headlines that have nothing to do with actually playing football.
Tebow, the most famous NFL quarterback in league history that can’t beat out Mark “The Butt-Fumbler” Sanchez, made headlines this week as he got on Wichita State’s team bus and did what it is he actually does professionally.
No, not walk around with a clipboard. The other thing. Speak publicly.
Tebow was on a plane that was refueling in Wichita, Kan. as the Shockers arrived back home after downing No. 1 seed Gonzaga.
I’m sure Tebow was asked to give a speech, and he obliged them. Anyways, according to ESPN, here’s what he told them:
“Some of you might go play in the NBA or you might have great lives. But this is the time you will remember,” Tebow said. “All of you all together, ballin’ out there together, training together, putting in the heart and sweat, everything, caring about each other. You’ll never forget it, guys, this is what it’s made of and these are the special times in your life, regardless of what you do in the future.
“So I just want to say congrats. You’re an inspiration to so many people, so always remember that and how you carry yourself and your character, how you represent your school, your family, your team, your brothers on the team, but also, man, just go out there and ball out, leave nothing on the court. I know you don’t need to hear that from me, but I just wish y’all luck and we’re praying for you. God bless, and y’all go do it, all right, guys?”
This entire thing was impromptu and originated by Tebow. He didn’t just steal another Varsity Blues line, again.
In good news,
the hunter from Jumanji Skip Bayless is good to go on content now for his next 85 hours of live television. Of course ESPN had this on their front page because they’re ESPN and he’s Tim Tebow.
