Here’s Reeves Wiedeman, blogging for the New Yorker, on Tim Tebow mania, which is sweeping the nation, and will probably be a talking point on every sports TV/radio show for the next 48 hours:
Perhaps part of Tebow’s appeal is that, for various reasons, he offers something the N.F.L. hasn’t had since late-career Brett Favre: a recognizable and polarizing figure that some can love and others can hate for, in Tebow’s case, being so loved. Like the N.B.A. before Magic and Bird, the N.F.L. suffers somewhat from a dearth of marketable stars.
Yes, Tebow’s faith is mentioned. [New Yorker]
