There they sat at the Niketown in Manhattan yesterday. A stage full of football stars: Adrian Peterson, Tim Tebow, Ndamukong Suh and Mark Sanchez.
And to think that the New York Jets quarterback, supposedly the heartthrob, had no chance to command the attention of the high school teenagers from Michigan who just happened to walk into the store at the right time.
All their are eyes were on Tim Tebow. The only pictures that will show up in their digital camera will be of Tim Tebow.
Tebow’s predicament is as unique as we’ve ever seen. He’s the most marketable college football player of all time who might be a bust of a marketing proposition as an NFL player.
But for now, before he’s drafted, before he gets to the next level, Tebow –- who won’t be showing up at the draft -- is red hot.
