A month ago, the 2 p.m. ET SportsCenter dedicated the majority of its 60 minutes to Tim Tebow.
Some scoffed at the notion. Others realized — rightfully — that SC was meeting the demands of sports fans’ insatiable appetite for all things Tebow.
Well, let the scoffers scoff and let the fans rejoice: Today’s 11 a.m. ET SportsCenter on ESPN again will be mostly dedicated to Tebow and his Broncos as they get ready for a Saturday night playoff match-up with the New England Patriots in Foxboro, Mass. (Viewers and Twitter users can use the hashtag #SCTebow.)
Barring any breaking news — and addressing on-going news with in-show updates — the hour is scheduled to include a look at Tebow’s play; what the Broncos need to do to win; what the Patriots need to do to stop them; and Tebow’s impact on business, religion, politics, and pop culture.
Anchors Kevin Negandhi and Robert Flores will steer the good ship #SCTebow.
“I think the difference is the planning for a show like this,” said Negandhi. “It won’t be a ‘breaking news’ show, so we can have some more creativity and developed topics.”
