In this week’s installment of caring way too much about a backup quarterback, we have learned New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow has not ruled out a career in politics after his NFL days are behind him. Tebow had this to say on ESPN New York regarding such an idea:
“I haven’t ruled it out. Whatever avenue I feel like I can make a difference in, I’d love to do. I haven’t ruled out anything like that. It won’t be anytime soon in my future, but it’ll be something I’ll at least look at and consider one day.”
Tim Tebow is the perfect man to be kissing babies on the campaign trail. If there is one career Tebow should have, being a politician seems to make a lot more sense than being a NFL quarterback. Tebow is a true humanitarian, and being in a political office would help everyone involved.
Tebow wouldn’t be the first athlete in office. Just off the top of my head, I can think of Bill Bradley, Jack Kemp, Jim Bunning, and Steve Largent, so Tebow wouldn’t be in a category all by himself.
It’s safe to assume Tebow would dominate any political race he would be in. People who actually vote would love the character of a Tim Tebow, He is the type of man that can inspire someone to accomplish great things. So due to his persuasive and powerful speeches, charming good lucks, large Christian following, and celebrity status to boot, Tim Tebow is the Manchurian candidate campaign managers can only dream of.
Get ready for it, folks. Sooner or later, Senator Tebow is going to happen.
