Tim Tebow already has made it to Broadway, even if the New York Jets expect him to be a supporting player this season. The quarterback attended the musical "Wicked," but the real show comes Monday: his introductory news conference with the Jets.
Florida graduate and lifelong Gators fan Mike Beattie followed every development of the Tim Tebow trade. After it finally ended, his wife turned to him and said, "Do we have to start rooting for the Jets?"
"It's interesting that people keep saying he can't play in the NFL and yet teams are lining up to get him," Echevarria said.
"He transcends cities and teams," said Randy Echevarria, president of the Jacksonville Beach Gator Club back in the original Tebow country. "It just doesn't matter to Tebow fans."
