Apparently they’re all the rage — or at least have someone with the NCAA raging — as yes, the Teebows underwear apparently inspired by Florida QB Tim Tebow are in danger of no longer being produced, according to my former peeps at the Orlando Sentinel.
Does that mean they’ll be collectors’ items? Perhaps, though technically there isn’t a Florida logo involved so maybe they won’t go away. For those of you who care, they are available in three colors (one with a No. 15 football on the back) for roughly the price of a couple packs of football cards.
Anyone who has spent any time in Central Florida the last few years knows how big the Cult of Tebow has become (and, really, plenty of people outside the area know that, too).
I’m sure plenty of fans will pass on these, but just wait until he has football cards …
