Today August 14, 2012 is New York Jet’s Quarterback Tim Tebow’s 25th birthday. Something that should hardly be mentioned on a sports news station like ESPN should defintely not be talked about the entire morning. There is no questionning that the NFL is king when it comes to sports. There is more money involved in football than the other three major sports, hockey, basketball, and baseball. The NFL is what people want to watch and care about the most, but who cares about what a bunch of middle aged men would get Tim Tebow for his birthday.
Do not get me wrong, Tim Tebow was probably the biggest story last year in the league. He is the good christian boy off the field and some how managed improbable victories and people may think he is the reincarnation of Jesus Christ himself. I like Tim Tebow, I went and heard him speak in Midland, TX when he was doing a Christian tour and speaking to youth. But is it necessary for ESPN to talk about him, who will not even start opening weekend, 24/7? The answer should be a resounding no.
ESPN is very close to a monopoly when it comes to sports on the television. We have a fledgding NBC Sports that is just starting out and maybe they can be as successful as ESPN and I say they should if ESPN cannot stop talking about the same subject over and over again. I realize that right now is a lull in the sport’s world. But the Reds and the Pirates are having one of their best seasons in years, America dominated in the Olympics. There are things to talk about. Even NFL Network, which really HAS to cover the NFL is 24/7 has not mentioned Tim Tebow on their Total Access show this morning.
Do we really need Tim Tebow and New York Jet football 24/7? Absolutley not. When ESPN realizes that this is not what people want and a new sports network emerges I believe this is the ESPN we are going to have to watch. Tebowmania was last year, lets not already throw a backup quarterback into MVP contention when he may not get any snaps under center.
