And Another Thing


The Tebow wins again

You know how media types always like to rank the success of this athlete or that by how they "move the needle"?

Well, Tim Tebow isn't just moving the needle these days. He's red-lining the thing.

This upon the news that ESPN's latest poll ranks The Tebow as the most popular athlete in America -- a not-exactly-surprise that The Tebow reacted to by saying some things that will no doubt make him even more beloved.

Basically he said all this proves is there sure are a lot of polls out there these days. Pitch-perfect, as always.

The only downside, which comes in the form of a cautionary tale, is that some of the other athletes who've topped this particular poll included LeBron James and Tiger Woods.

(Cue the Music of Foreboding, aka the spooky giant-shark-about-to-chow-down theme from "Jaws").
