…but it’ll do. Sure, his likeness in the game cannot convert the heathens, but I can say with complete certainty that Tim Tebow still feels pretty blessed about the blessed honor.
EA Sports announced that Tim Tebow – THE GREATEST PLAYER EVER TO PUT ON A UNIFORM IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL EVAR – was selected to be the cover boy for NCAA Football 11, and how happy we are for him. If Tebow elects to possibly subject himself to potential embarrassment and attend the NFL Draft later this month, perhaps the league should set up a PS3 or Xbox or something so Timmy Boy has something to do while he sits there waiting for his name to be called.
During the photo shoot for the cover, ESPN’s Jon Robinson sat down with the quarterback and picked his ministerial mind.
Jon Robinson: Are you a big gamer?
Tim Tebow: I’ve been playing the college football game since I was about 6 years old, and I still really enjoy playing the game. I don’t play too much during the season, but in the offseason and summer, I definitely like to sit down and enjoy the games.
Jon Robinson: What was your reaction the first time you saw yourself in a video game?
Tim Tebow: First thing I thought was, I’m faster than that. [laughs] I wanted to call some people and get my speed rating bumped up a little bit. But it’s fun to be a part of the game. It’s something that exciting, and it’s a little surreal to be honest, because you’re playing as yourself in a game that you grew up playing. As a kid, I always looked up to these guys who were on the cover of the college game, so it’s a really fun experience for me just to be involved. –ESPN.
Good for Tebow. The guy never seems to catch a break, so to see him finally rewarded and receive the appropriate accolades for his good works and deeds is truly a blessing.
For those of you who cannot get enough of Tebowanity, a video from the video shoot follows. Now start genuflecting, all ye sinners!
