Tebow Smiles, Says Little on ‘GMA’

Add an appearance on Good Morning America to the ongoing media blitz surrounding Tim Tebow’s move to the New York Jets. Speaking today to Robin Roberts in an “exclusive” interview, nothing much was actually said. He likes football, wants to be a good person, he retells the oft-told (and controversial) story of his beginnings, he’s excited. Tebow can go on a major morning program, get some publicity, and say little because, for now at least, anything Tebow draws a crowd. About 15,000 came out to hear him speak on Easter Sunday.

“In Christianity, it’s the Pope and Tebow right now,” said one pastor.

The buzz surrounding Tebow has prompted questions for Jets owner Woody Johnson about whether he brought the QB over to sell jerseys.

“Jerseys aren’t really our main line of business. Our main line of business is winning games,” he said.

It’s actually the business of Nike to sell jerseys, especially now that it has settled its case with Reebok over who’s allowed to sell Tebow merchandise. Reebok has agreed to pull all of its merchandise now that Nike is the official provider of NFL jerseys.
