Yesterday, it was the news of Tebow changing his dog’s name from Bronco to Bronx, which is definitely going to confuse the dog. And today, we get news that E! is planning to air a special about Tebow.
The kicker about this “special”? It’ s all being done without the participation of Tebow himself. But that matters not. When need yet another look into the life of the man, the myth, the legend, Tim Tebow.
E!’s cameras were part of the throng of more than 200 media members who covered Tebow’s introductory news conference on March 26 inside a field house at the Jets’ practice facility in Florham Park, N.J. The network isn’t known for its sports programming, but it does have Mavericks forward Lamar Odom (the Lamar of Khloe & Lamar) on the payroll.
“We have a Tim Tebow special in the works that is tentatively scheduled to premiere in July,” said an E! spokesperson. “Tebow is a pop culture phenomenon and the interest in his life expands beyond the world of sports. He’s a compelling personality and has a fascinating story.”
Translation: He draws viewers.
