Picture of Tim Tebow, powder and spiritual stuff sent to Jersey City hall

Currently unemployed NFL quarterback Tim Tebow finds weird ways to make it into the news. Whether it is holding a baby like a football when striking the Heisman pose or Jacksonville Jaguars fans begging their owner to sign him, he keeps popping up.

Now there is a weird story out of New Jersey involving Tebow. Someone sent a letter to Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop that contained a white powder and a picture of Tim Tebow. The white powder forced the City Hall to evacuate while a hazmat team was called in.


Jersey City Public Safety Director James Shea said the letter was addressed to “Steven Fulop, family and friends.” When it was opened by a mayor’s aide at 2:15 p.m. a small amount of white powder fell out.

Shea said there was a note in the envelope but would not reveal what it said, saying the matter was still under investigation.

A source said the letter contained “spiritual stuff. Heaven stuff. A picture of Tebow.”

No word if the spiritual stuff was the picture of Tebow. Tests on the powder revealed that it was harmless. The matter remains under investigation.

“There have been many of these cases of white powder across the country,” Shea said. “Anyone in the news draws the attention of all kinds of people.”
