    Glad he is defending himself for a change…

  2. Bubbaelvis says:

    I am also glad to see him defend himself. How can you fault the guy when he is just being true to himself and living for the Lord?
    I looked at the box score for yesterday’s fall league game and Tim was not in the line-up. Does anyone know why he did not play Tuesday?

  3. Pamelot says:

    I think that’s a pretty awesome answer, too.

  4. Sage says:

    A double on Wednesday’s first at bat? He was due. Awesome. Heard he moved over to third on a grounder to short, too.

  5. Andrea says:

    So Tebow went up against the clown. The clown acted like a clown- Tebow won hands down.

    Go Tebow !!!!

  6. Danny says:

    Tim finishes the game 1·4. The hit was a double in the 5th inning.

  7. Sage says:

    Anyone have any guesses who is “6’5withtheafro6’9” at Twitter?

    I haven’t tried too hard to figure it out, but I’m curious. Apparently former PAC 10 quarterback, and 3 sport athlete. Now a surgeon in L.A. Seems like he might be about 40.

    Very interesting guy, and I enjoy his insights. Might be just as good not to know who he is. But if you’ve figured it out . . .

    The Scottsdale game tonight is being live streamed tonight on the mlb website. Game starts at 21:35 eastern time.

  9. Adam says:

    I know it probably won’t happen, but I still hope to see TIM on a football field again. Some of the teams that are so desperate at quarterback would make so much sense…

    The jaguar on the prowl tonite…. Only down 23 to 0..Glad to see the jaguar fans are spared the sight of TT

  11. Danny says:

    Tim’s first at bat, single, then stolen base, then scored on a home run by Gleyber Torres.

    Single hit on a 93.1 mph 4 seam fastball.

  12. Danny says:

    FINALLY found a live feed of the game. The MLB site must be overloaded. I located this on the MLB feed on FB.



  13. Sage says:

    Hey, did we all get new faces? I’m not sure I recognize us.

  14. Brandi says:

    Someone, presumably in South Carolina, asked a Reporter covering the AFL if Tim might possibly be at least starting out in Columbia, SC with the Fireflies. The Reporter (split between a couple of his tweets) said there’s talk within the Mets Organization that he will be in Extended Spring Training and then to Brooklyn. That is the Short-Season A League. (The Cyclones) then he’ll spend at least some of 2017 in Columbia–A League with the Fireflies.

    It sounds like the Mets plan on having him Play as much as they possibly can and push him through the system. This also does something else which probably shouldn’t be ignored. Let’s them put Tim in front of as many Fans at as many levels of the Mets System as they can.

    MLB and Minor League Baseball haven’t been like the NFL was. They’re making a big deal out of every accomplishment Tim has, including highlighting his Hit and Steal last night as sparing a huge inning that led to a Win.

    Baseball knows they have the rarest jewel in the World, an incredible athlete, beloved around the world without even the slightest hint of scandal or any likelihood there will ever be any.

    How the NFL failed to recognize this…especially when he had so much success including an historic Season will go down as one of the most mind-boggling things in the history of Sports.

      Andrea, that would be amazing!

      I think if Tim made the major league roster he would be only the 68th person to play in both the NFL and MLB. Tim would be only the 3rd person to win the Heisman trophy and play in MLB. Far fewer played in the playoff in both leagues too.

      Pretty sweet all-around if that happened.

    • Sage says:

      Thanks, Brandi. I enjoyed being able to stream last night’s game. Baseball does seem a lot more people friendly these days than NFL.

      • Brandi says:

        I was involved with Baseball for years. I worked with MLB & MiLB helping orphans in Africa. A little personal anecdote that may show just how different the two leagues are.

        The man who led the move in Africa was an Owner of one of the Minor League Teams. He went to Africa himself a couple times a year every year for over 10 years. The Owner who chaired the Owner’s Committee that ran AA in Minor League Baseball was also personally deeply involved. On the MLB front, two senior Execs for Major League Baseball International were nominally running Baseball’s work around the world spreading baseball and helping Kids in need. I worked alot with 3 MLB Teams. The Teams were represented at the President level of one Team (the Tigers, Dave Dombrowski who is now President of the Red Sox), the Chief Advisor to the Owner for the Diamondbacks, the Co-Chairman for the Dodgers. Other teams were involved as well. And mostly at high levels.

        These guys were seriously involved in efforts to get equipment and other resources and get them to the kids, very often having to work out creative ways to get it done as at that time getting anything done in Africa was very difficult. But they put alot of time and work into helping African Orphans. Can anyone imagine NFL Owners, Team Presidents, Team Chairmen or anything even close spending 5 minutes thinking about orphans in Africa and helping them get what they need…just to survive? And do so without one single ounce of fanfare? Without parading in front of the entire world what amazing guys they are?

        Not ever gonna happen. But with the people who run baseball that kind of stuff goes on every day. They just have an entirely different view as to what it is their position means in terms of having great responsibility. Not just big money. The difference between the two league is night and day which is why Baseball gets all the perks from Congress and everyone else that NFL Owners crave but are never granted. Cause they have no intention of being a responsible organization.

  15. Andrea says:

    Rodger Goodell is a fool. I am totaling enjoying the news that the NFL’s ratings are down big time.

    Once again I will be boycotting the Super Bowl due to the halftime freak show.

    Cannot wait to see Tebow in the World Series.

  16. Danny says:

    Scottsdale playing now vs. Javelinas

    Tim is 1-2 with a base hit, on base on a fielders choice, and thrown out attempting to steal second base.

  17. jp says:

    Another dismal BrDford typical game. Viking gave up a no. One for him…TT would have run and passed that lousey Bear team to the Zoo..this is what football has become… One bright spot I heard on Rush today espn lost 625000 Subscribers last mo.

    • ck says:

      Guess that is some consolation…mass exodus of subscribers that no longer shell out $$$ to the tune of 625,000!:D TYVM JP that made my day!

  18. Brandi says:

    Disney has been getting beaten on by Investors over ESPN for about a year. But now it is more intense than anything I’ve even seen on any Company. Disney reports its Quarterly Earnings the evening of the 10th and the stage has been set for a mass exodus of Disney Shareholders unless some kind of unexpected announcement of a super deal or something happens between now and then.

    Investment Analysts are already calling ESPN a dead network.

    • Sage says:

      How did the sports guys devolve into such politico-wannabies?

      • Brandi says:

        Some of you are probably gonna really like this…

        Investment Analysts are so frustrated with not being sure what to do about Disney because of ESPN they have begun asking people who cancelled ESPN directly why they did instead of taking other people’s speculation.

        About half said it was because they believe ESPN has a political and social agenda that is contrary to their own beliefs. This goes directly to your comment Sage. Half of ESPN’s Subscriber Cancellations are due to believing the “Sports” network is just trying to influence politically and social engineer. And they’re saying that to Analysts advising on whether their clients should buy or sell Disney stock.

        This isn’t just some Twitter hashtag. Lots of people are really offended by what’s supposed to be a Sports network. Crazy.

        • Andrea says:

          Love that the Investment Analysts are talking to the normal people who just want to watch sports. The political and social agenda of the analysts on ESPN – I’m not interested in that at all.

          The fool Rodger Goodell still has not figured out that the reason for the NFL TV ratings tanking is normal people are offended by the disrespect shown to the flag.

          I’m still boycotting the NFL. Sundays I get out of the house and travel around the good ole USA.

          As Kate Smith says – God Bless America.

        • Sage says:

          It’s fascinating what a little leg work can do. It’s the very, very last resort for big players, but it still works.

          Yahoo has been spurning potential readers for more than a decade, and I’ve always wondered if any shareholder even realizes it.

  19. Brandi says:

    The latest on Tim’s injury. http://www.espn.com/espn/now?nowId=21-0585243074628687737-4

    He’s going to try to play tomorrow night.

  20. David says:

    It begins. And the fans are booing the team.

    World Series game 7 starts at 8PM EST on Fox.

    • Sage says:

      Should be quite some time before anyone turns their blaming eyes toward Dave Caldwell. He’ll probably get to pick and groom another 1st round QB before that happens. After all, he was the Colts genius who drafted Manning. What a clever maverick.

    • ck says:

      Looks like the cubs won in Cleveland…and they (Jags) could have been a contender w/TT! Where’s Buzzy?

  21. jp says:


    • ck says:

      Agree w/u jp on that!

    • Brandi says:

      It’s much worse than that. The Jags knew guys from BCB were in here and other Tebow Forums trying to create conflict, bust these forums up, online stalking Tebow Fans, etc. And they gave them more team access and a bigger role in Marketing.

      They were perfectly fine with terrorizing Tebow Fans. And rewarded groups for it. That’s a little bit worse than bowing to Dangerous Dave Caldwell. That’s sick and twisted.

      • Sage says:

        This morning I read that the nfl TV agreement extends to 2021 or even 2022-23. They exploited Tebow’s popularity for a decade-long TV bonanza and scorned him to boot. Very low people.

  22. Danny says:

    Tim batting 8th today, playing DH.

    Game time 3:35pm Eastern.
