Tim Tebow Will Not Appear At The Republican National Convention, Pundits’ Wet Dreams Aside
The Jets are struggling mightily, and no one’s having a tougher time than Tim Tebow, who’s 13-for-36 passing this preseason with no touchdowns (just like the rest of the Jets) and two interceptions. Bearing that in mind, one would think Tebow – nothing if not a diligent worker – would be spending as much time around his teammates his possible as they try to work out the kinks (even though he’s not playing in the Jets’ preseason finale tonight).
But in addition to the Jets game, something else is going on tonight… the climactic “nominee gives a speech” night at the Republican National Convention. (Well, the Republicans might be more excited for Marco Rubio’s speech, actually, but you know.) One part of tonight’s RNC proceedings still up in the air: a mystery speaker. Who will it be? Well, there was a rumor that a panel on MSNBC’s Morning Joe found enticing this morning: Tebow.
We’ll admit: we had no idea this rumor existed before we were alerted to the Morning Joe discussion today, but it’s easy to see why it was so eagerly discussed: can you imagine the firestorm if Tebow actually spoke there? Even Rex Ryan might not like his Jets getting that much attention. Morning Joe would have a delicious, giant plate of the choicest red meat to bury their faces into and ravenously tear apart for days, if not weeks. Plus, as they noted, Jets owner Woody Johnson is a Romney guy, and Tebow hasn’t entirely steered clear of politically-charged material in the past.
But that’s all conjecture. Will a surprise Tebow appearance actually happen? Well… no:

For the record, the actual no-longer-mysterious mystery speaker will be Clint Eastwood. Tebow’s probably smart not to get involved in this and become even more polarizing than he already is, but it’s too bad (especially for pundits and, well, sites like ours) – Eastwood’s a legend and everything, but a Tebow appearance really would have made our day.
