Photo of the Day: Tebow as a Yankee
We all know that it has been Tim Tebow's dream since he was a boy to play in the NFL and he is on the cusp of doing just that. But what few realize is that his dad wished he had chosen baseball over football because of player longevity.
Personally, we just want to see Tebow play catcher. Why? Because we'd love to see him take out guys coming home with his right shoulder the same way he trucks linebackers. Seeing a guy with this kind of intensity behind the plate would make a long summer just that more enjoyable.
And the idea of Tebow smiling that big ol' smile welcoming batters as they come to the plate would be pretty funny too, because we know he wouldn't talk trash and chirp at them. Maybe he'd bring "polite" smack talk to the game which would be far more annoying.
Tim, we eagerly await seeing you play QB in the NFL, but if you want to follow in the footsteps of Bo Jackson, or even Deion Sanders, we wouldn't mind seeing you play some baseball too.
And for what it's worth, the No. 15 is open on the Yankees' roster. And Steinbrenner is a Bull Gator. Just sayin'.
