If the cosmos isn’t lining up for a 2012 catastrophe, perhaps they are lining up against the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins front office has had embarrassment after embarrassment and the football team is 0-4. Hope is about as distant from the Dolphins right now…..as Mars. And JUST, when you think the last straw has finally broken the
Dolphins camel’s back, another straw falls from the heavens. And by saying ‘from the heavens’, we’re talking about none other than Tim Tebow. In yesterday’s 29-24 loss to the Chargers, Kyle Orton was replaced by Tim Tebow, he who walks on water, when the Broncos trailed 24-10. Tebow sparked a comeback and had a desperation throw for the win to end the game…that ultimately fell incomplete. John Fox has a bye week to ponder whether or not Tebow will start on October 23rd against the Dolphins. However, according to Broncos fans, 92% of them at least, want Tebow to start.
So how does what another team’s QB have to do with the Dolphins? Well, you see, the Dolphins have agreed to have the reunion of the 2009 National Champion Florida Gators on the very day that Tebow will likely make his first start of 2011. Considering the Dolphins have had issues (saying it mildly), selling tickets this season, we can expect about 1/2 a stadium’s worth (or more) of Tebowmaniacs. Sure, from a business perspective this is a great idea. The game won’t be blacked out and Mr. Ross and the Dolphins ownership will get their sellout. I wonder if they’ll be selling Tebow jerseys in the stands? Or even in the ‘team’ stores?
