Twitter lit up with Tim Tebow news this morning. The first thing I did was avoid ESPN. Apparently, I did it wrong.
Everyone else in America seems to have turned on ESPN, so they could rail against the machine. Everyone else in America counted the number of times ESPN said the name Tim Tebow, adding fuel to their rant by pointing how long it took them to mention Jason Collins’ coming out, the other big sports news of the day. And clearly, the more game-changing of the two.
Just turn the channel.
Face it: ESPN is no more obsessed with Tim Tebow than we are of their incessant coverage of Tim Tebow. They practically write our columns and blog posts for us. We knew what was going to happen, but couldn’t look away from the wreckage.
Pick up the remote and turn the channel.
