Tim Tebow Fans to Give Hometown Hero Flash Mob Reception in Jacksonville

Tebow, Tim 3

New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow returns home to Jacksonville for only the second time as a pro, and still as a backup quarterback, but that won’t stop local fans for planning their celebration.

If you look up the YouTube video,”Flash Mob at Everbank Field”, you’ll see that the plan is a pre-game event outside the stadium is being put on by a company called Soul Electronics. “They asked us to do the flash mob at this game because the New York Jets will be playing and Tim Tebow is the quarterback of that team. Tim is affiliated with Soul Electronics so that’s why we are doing this on this date,” reads the description.

The video shows the routine performed by four girls and then broken down by steps by one of the girls for those wanting to memorize the flash mob dance. The sports editor, Alfie Crow appears to be unhappy about the meeting place for the flash mob, which is said to be near “Touchdown”, the Jacksonville Jaguars statue.

“So there you have it. A company wants to organize people in Jacksonville to form a flash mob for the opposing team’s quarterback outside the stadium at noon before kickoff,” Crow states. “Not only is this going to be incredibly obnoxious trying to get into the stadium, but it’s also kind of a slap in the face.”

“Stomping on our mascot at midfield on our home turf, if you will.”

I think this is a pretty cool idea personally; plus, this might be the only way a 2-10 team can actually sell out a home game toward the end of the season, but that’s just my take what do you think? Let me know!
