As you probably figured out from my rants about and trips to Fenway Park and Red Sox games, I’m a bit of a sports fan. Specifically, I’m a New England sports fan, but this makes sense since I was born and raised in Maine. Now, if you’re in the loop with the NFL or you follow ESPN SportCenter or something, you probably heard the news …
This kid – yes, the one and only Tim Tebow – signed with the Patriots this morning.
If you couldn’t tell, I’m not jumping for joy. To be fair, I’m not terrible upset, either. I guess the best way to put it is that I’m wary.
Tebow seemed to disappear from NFL sight while signed with the Jets, and I thought that I was done hearing about him. No one could doubt that he’s a good player, I just didn’t think that he deserved quite the amount of conversation about him.
But now he’s back on my radar – at least, he is for the next 2 years. I’m witholding my judgment on him until after I see how he and the team mesh together.
What are your thoughts on Tebow and the move to the Pats?
