Tim Tebow not content with failing at just one professional sport is attempting to become the reverse Bo Jackson by failing at not only Football, but Baseball aswell. This is excellent news as now I get to laugh at everyone who swore to me that Tim Tebow was an excellent quarterback and it was everyone else in the league who just couldn’t see it, once more. So far Tim’s only supporter is a man paid to speak well of him. His agent.
“Obviously we support Tim in his pursuit of a baseball career, as we have in all his ventures,” said Sexton, Tebow’s football agent, who is now working with CAA baseball agent Brodie Van Wagenen.
“Tim’s athletic ability, his work ethic, his leadership and his competitiveness were evident in football and will show in baseball. Knowing Tim’s passion and desire, we won’t be surprised by anything he accomplishes.”
Of course Tebow hasn’t played baseball since he was in college way back in 2005, but who cares! He’s Tim Fucking Tebow! He can do anything! The man was sent from God afterall! Can I end another sentence with an exclamation mark? (Turns out no.)
Tebow, now 29, invited every MLB team to an open workout sometime later this month.
Former MLB catcher Chad Moeller said in a statement, through Tebow’s agent, “I am beyond impressed with Tim’s athleticism and swing, and it goes without saying that he has shown a high level of discipline and strong work ethic. I see bat speed and power and real baseball talent. I truly believe Tim has the skill set and potential to achieve his goal of playing in the Major Leagues, and based on what I have seen over the past two months, it could happen relatively quickly.”
Again, another glowing recommendation directly from Tebow’s agent.
For an outside and more realistic perspective we have a wonderful random scout’s quote:
A major league scouting director told ESPN’s Jayson Stark on Tuesday: “Eleven years (of not playing baseball), nobody can overcome that.”
Buckle up ladies and gents. The Tebow train has returns to entertain!
