He’s at it again. Tim Tebow is setting records in the NFL and he hasn’t even started his first season yet. As I previously mentioned, I bet that Tebow wouldn’t be drafted in the first round. I was wrong. Since being drafted by Denver, Tim Tebow’s #15 Bronco’s jersey is the fastest-selling rookie jersey of all-time. And apparently there isn’t a very close second place.
I still feel as passionately about the guy as I always have. There just has to be more to his story. And apparently I’m not the only one. Bronco’s blogs and message boards received polar reviews of the pick, yet nothing really down the middle. So good or bad, he’s definitely publicity for the team.
I’ll admit, if Tebow decided he liked Gameday Cloth and wanted some Univeristy of Florida gear, I would get it for him. Personally. And hand write the thank you note. Then drive it to him and take a picture of him wearing it.
I still feel the same. I just know Tebow repping your company is not a bad thing.
So fans will be showing up to Bronco’s games (and probably UF games) in the new Bronco’s #15 jersey. The fashionista in me has to object. Can’t there be some originality? Will everyone look the same?
I propose a vintage Gator T-shirt. Ironically, the colors for each team are very similar and everyone would know who you were supporting and envy how good you looked simultaneously. You can wear it to the game, wear it on the weekend and wear it to a casual job under a blazer. Where are you going to wear a jersey outside of a tailgate? And how much does that jersey cost?
And say you’re following the #1 draft pick, Sam Bradford. If you wore an old-school Oklahoma Tshirt, let’s make it white with red lettering to keep from accidentally supporting the opposing team in red, everyone would know who you were cheering for.
Let’s face it, the NFL is all about the players you support more than the team they play for. I bet that’s especially true in Tebow’s case. No matter who he plays for, his loyal followers will shun the colors from the previous team and refill their closet in the new team colors. Isn’t it just easier to rock out in Florida gear?
