â†µThe plan concocted by his agent, Jimmy Sexton, was to have Tebow live with him and work out in Memphis at local high schools. I mean, who would be looking for Tim Tebow in Memphis? Oh, right. â†µâ†µ
â†µSo maybe he wasn't able to escape this teenage videographer with his iPhone. â†µ
â†µOne part of the Memphis trip that doesn't seem to exist on video is Tebow showing that he's got some skills with a baseball bat. â†µ
â†µâ‡¥[Tebow] also got a chance to take batting practice with the MUS baseball team and hit 12 of 15 pitches out of the park. â†µâ‡¥â†µ
â†µâ‡¥"The kids were just awed by how far he hit the ball," Sexton said. "The best thing about Tim is he thinks he's just another guy and acts that way. He's oblivious to everything going on around him. He doesn't think he's a big deal. I asked him the other day how he stayed so humble, how come he didn't get the big head compared to a lot of other athletes." â†µâ‡¥â†µ
â†µI don't believe I'm overstating this: Tim Tebow is the next Bo Jackson and should be signed by the Rockies immediately. I mean, Colorado is already six back in the NL West, so they've got to do something to keep the fans coming back, right? â†µâ†µ
