Tim Tebow is going to the Super Bowl this year. No, this isn’t some Skip Bayless fantasy, it’s actually happening. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tim Tebow will be in New York for the Super Bowl on Friday to host the ABC morning show Good Morning America.
Tebow, who had been a favorite topic at Disney-owned ESPN during his final tumultuous seasons in the NFL, landed a job at ESPN in December. GMA has used guest hosts in the past, most prominently during anchor Robin Roberts’ medical absence when Stephen Colbert, the cast of Modern Family and Oprah Winfrey were among those who filled in.
That’s right America, this gig could lead Tebow to becoming the next Oprah, only it’s likely he’ll find a way to overthrow that opportunity like he has most of his receivers in his career.
It’s not a coincidence that a guy with no television experience is hosting a morning show at the Super Bowl. Tebow recently inked a deal with ESPN to join it’s cast of television analysts, so the move to put him on Good Morning America is very calculated.
This means that if you’re watching Good Morning America on Friday, it’s likely you’ll see Tim Tebow talk about his experience with the Denver Broncos while teaching you how to make delicious wings or some other tasty recipe for your Super Bowl party.
The only question is how well will the ratings do with Tebow guest hosting? Even if they don’t do well, Tebow’s cult following will forever be able to say that the quarterback made it to the Super Bowl.
