The New York Jets have just acquired Tim Tebow from the Denver Broncos, which means the NFL’s biggest star is coming to the biggest city in America. The media in New York is unparalleled and the attention athletes get in the city is something that is not present in any other place in the country.
The entire sports world had its eyes on Jeremy Lin during his miracle run with the Knicks and if he had been doing that in a smaller market, Linsanity probably would have never existed. And now with Tebow on the Jets, prepare for some Timsanity.
“It’s awesome. I’m just excited for him [Tebow] and to see what he does,” Lin said about the recent trade. “We’ll see what happens next year, but I’m excited obviously that he’s going to be in New York.”
It will be interesting to see how Tebow plays with these Jets and how he fits along with Mark Sanchez. The media will be going crazy over Tebow and only time can tell if he can continue his magic.
