    Tebow gets booed at Yankees game

    While attending a Yankees game on Friday, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said that the “feels bad” for “the Sanchez” because fans will be cheering for backup quarterback Tim Tebow during the first game of the 2012 season.

    New York fans attending Sunday’s game at Yankees Stadium got a chance to chime in.

    Art Stapleton of the Record reports via Twitter that Tim Tebow was shown on the large video monitor attending the game, and that his image was greeted with “loud boos.” Later, Stapleton explained it as “[f]aint cheers” and “mostly boos.”

    Though we won’t know what the fans at MetLife Stadium will do until they assemble for a Jets game and Tebow trots onto the field, it’s safe to say that Tebow won’t be hearing many cheers if/when he starts burning worms and/or putting balls in the front row.

    UPDATE 10:29 p.m. ET: The Associated Press item from the game also says that Tebow was booed.





    Didn't need another Tebow thread on the main forum. Even though i'm not a fan of the Tebow move, I would not of boo'd him.

    EDIT: Maybe they were just chanting "teBOOOOOOOOOOw"

    It's important to remember that at Yankee Stadium, probably half of the fans (if not more) are Giants fans, who would boo any Jet shown on the screen.

    This has nothing to do with what might happen at a Jets home game.
