Redskins executive uses Bob Marley, Tim Tebow to sell tickets

Friday September 26th, 2014

After Kirk Cousins imploded during a 45-14 blowout loss to the Giants Thursday night, Redskins tickets might not be the most in demand thing right now. So a team sales executive decided to get creative with a fan by using Bob Marley and Tim Tebow.

You can already tell from the subject that the e-mail's going to be good, as it's titled "Everything's Gonna Be Alright." The executive then links the Bob Marley song by the same name (and also includes it at the bottom of the e-mail), before using historical stats to predict a playoff berth.

If Tim Tebow could do it, so will we!

But as Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post points out, that stat is not even accurate. The 2013 Philadelphia Eagles made the playoffs after a 1-3 start, putting the current number at 24 teams and sadly meaning Tebow isn't the most recent person to have the claim to fame.

No word on whether the e-mail convinced the fan to buy tickets, but with Bob Marley and Tim Tebow as a sales pitch, who could say no?
