Tim Tebow: Jets QB Tackles New York Media During Interview
At a recent public speaking appearance for his one-year appointment to the Florida Gators Boosters board, Tebow seemingly sounded off on the New York media, according to quotes via Chris Harry of GatorZone.com:
On the New York media: “They’ve been very accurate in their reporting. First, I was living in the city. Then I was in Hoboken—and I’ve never even been to Hoboken. I think I’ve dated three or four different girls I’ve never met. But it’s been interesting. And fun...I just try to be myself and have fun and smile and laugh, but sometimes some of them are taken aback by it. It’s like, ‘Why aren’t you more serious?’ Because I like to laugh and have fun. I enjoy my life.”
Now I'm not an expert on sarcasm, but am I the only one sensing a little bit of it here?
The New York media can be rather ravenous and cutthroat when it comes to players and their performances, but with Tebow they've taken more of a gossip-magazine approach. To be fair, they're trying to create stories about a backup quarterback, so aside from the over-analysis of minicamp interceptions or his role as a personal protector, what else is there to talk about?
Your Thoughts On Tebow?
Has the big, bad city of New York changed the ever-humble and gracious quarterback?
Obviously the pressure of playing for the Jets has forced him to become snarky, mean and—I dare say—funny. He's undoubtedly snapping under the pressure of the New York lifestyle and lashing out.
Breaking News: Tim Tebow has gone bad to the bone. This is the end of the world.
Or—and this is a big "or," mind you—it was just an off-the-cuff comment directed at a media base desperate to make something out of nothing, but I'll let you be the judge of that.
Like I said, I'm not an expert on sarcasm.
