The media can't stand to be kept away. Just for the day.
It's Super Bowl week. The Broncos are long since done yet, in Indianapolis, Tim Tebow gathers enormous crowds. As though the Police Department didn't have its hands full already, protecting players on the teams that are actually participating.
What he's doing there is anybody's guess. Aside from standing in Jimmy Fallon's spot light, that is.
Can't the dude heal at home at let somebody else appear on the late night television shows?
Perhaps his former Florida team mate, Aaron Hernandez, the Patriots remarkable receiving tight end, would like a shot at winning America's hearts through comedy. He did have nearly eighty catches for almost a thousand yards and seven touchdowns in this, his second year in the NFL, after all.
With only four days remaining until the biggest of big games, a game featuring Tom Brady, Eli Manning, Wes Welker, undrafted overachiever Victor Cruz and New York's legendary front-four, America can't seem to get enough Tebow.
Even ESPN, which should have plenty of relevant Sports figures to discuss with the NBA and NHL in full swing, the MLB hot stove getting hotter and the Super Bowl on the way, brought in singer John Legend to perform "Extraordinary Tebow" on the program First Take on Tuesday.
The Tebow thing has gone from completely out of hand to "you have to be fucking kidding me".
Seemingly every Sports Radio station in Denver dispatched talkers to Indianapolis to cover the Super Bowl. That would be ridiculously unnecessary enough if it weren't for them spewing the same Tebow spooge all over their microphones on Radio Row that they do on the ones in their studios back home.
All Day long it's Tebow this and it's Tebow that. Tebow love and Tebow hate. "Pocket passing", "quarterbacks coach", "skill set", "shoudn't he be working on his game?", "he deserves some time off". Enough is enough!
Even lovers need a Holiday.
Far away from Tim Tebow.
This has become way, way too much of a good thing. Or a bad thing. It depends on who you ask, I suppose. We're fans. Here at the 'Stands we all agree that the kid is great for Denver. But even we are over it.
If we've had our fill, how must the rest of the Country feel?
Perhaps once America's final football weekend has finally ended and a Champion has been crowned, everyone will finally just shut the fuck up for a little while and let us and Tim Tebow get some much needed time away from each other.
We hope the love affair is unending but, after all that's been said and done, it's time to let go.
Come August we'll be swept away.
