Tim Tebow enters his first NFL season battling Kyle Orton and Brady Quinn to be the starting quarterback of the Denver Broncos. Apparently no one cares that Timmy could spend all of next season holding a clipboard, because his jersey is now the top selling in the NFL. In an unrelated story, the Jaguars are still happy with the selection of Tyson Alualu with the 10th overall pick in the draft. “Why would we pick the hometown guy, who’s bound to sell us a lot of tickets? We’re selling out every game,” I was told by a fictional Jaguars source, who was on acid at the time.
It has been three months, and Tim Tebow still hasn’t taken a single (real) snap under center for the Denver Broncos, yet he’s leading the league in jersey sales.
A list of the best-selling player jerseys on NFLShop.com, from April 1 through June 30, has the former Heisman Trophy winner and 25th overall pick in this year’s draft at the top, ahead of Donovan McNabb, who changed teams from the Eagles to the Redskins, and Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees. –CNBC
Well, good for Tebow. I love to see an annoying Christian virgin with a girlfriend who look like this become widely popular without having to do anything. That doesn’t make me want to punch a hole in my wall at all. Thank God people make videos like the one after the jump.
