And now ... reverse Tebowmania

So I'm sitting here this fine day contemplating the theoretical Tebow Apocalypse, which is another way of saying "What would the world look like if Tim Tebow could actually play?"

One shudders.

One shudders, because, even as an unemployed backup-borderline-third-string NFL quarterback, Tebow was recently declared the most influential athlete in America by Forbes. Fans in Jacksonville recently posted a petition to sign Tebow on, get this, the White House's website. And now, in a classic bit of backlash, another group of fans in Jacksonville, the Bold City Brigade, has launched a website ( soliciting "endorsements from REAL Jaguars fans that don't need Tim Tebow."

As of Thursday morning, the site had 31,000 clicks.

Imagine if someone actually signs him.
