Florida Man Finds New Sport to Suck At

Tim Tebow exists to try hard and to win, and try as you might, you cannot win at broadcasting. So Tebow (pronounced Teeee-booooo!!!) is taking his talents out of the booth and to the baseball diamond. And let’s be honest: your initial reaction—and the Internet’s initial reaction—is to not take it very seriously. Because, in 2016, there are certain viral touchstones, and Tim Tebow is one of them, a human Ice Bucket Challenge. [See: Tebow running in the rain, or Tebow bringing a man back from the dead, or Tebow “Tebowing.”] But because we’ve turned Tim Tebow into some dehumanized form of Internet currency, it’s easy to forget that him playing baseball isn’t just a funny idea to tweet about; it could actually happen! And it would be… awesome.

First of all, consider: it’s not that crazy to think it could (maybe) happen. According to ESPN, he was an all-state baseball player in high school, hitting .494 during his junior season. (Not a baseball swing, but still: this.) He’s athletic, he has an arm, and would have likely been draftedout of high school.
