A New York Rangers fan wore a custom Tim Tebow hockey jersey to Sunday's Eastern Conference finals game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Despite a brief and disappointing tenure with the Jets, television commentator and occasional quarterback Tim Tebow is apparently still popular in New York.
At Sunday's NHL playoff game between the Rangers and Lightning at Madison Square Garden, one fan was spotted sporting a No. 15 Rangers jersey with "Tebow" on the back.
At 6'2", 235 pounds, Tebow certainly has the physique to play hockey; he's about the same size as Rangers winger Chris Kreider. But he's from Florida, so he probably doesn't have much experience with ice.
Now that Tebow is in Philadelphia, can we look forward to seeing customized hockey sweaters with tributes to backup quarterbacks at Flyers games?
