    New York Jets QB Tim Tebow Calls & Comforts Teenage Car Crash Victim!

    dum vita est spes est

    http://www.timesunion.com/local/arti...or-4088359.php


    Twitter went viral on Monday night to lift the spirits of Matt Hardy and Bailey Wind, the two teenagers who survived Saturday night's deadly crash on the Northway. It started as a simple request for NFL quarterback Tim Tebow and Olympic swimmer Missy Franklin to call Hardy and Wind in their hospital rooms.

    By 7 p.m. Monday, more than 50,000 Twitter users had retweeted the #TebowCallMatt and 16,700 had tweeted #MissyCallBailey, according to Hashtag.org, a website that tracks Twitter traffic.

    Tebow delivered. He called Hardy around 9 p.m., and at 9:30 Tebow tweeted "Thanks to everyone who got #TebowCallMatt trending & helped connect us. Matt truly inspired me. God bless y'all."

    Franklin tweeted around midnight that she called Wind and left a voicemail message.

    We Albany area Jets fans appreciate the call, too!

    The guy is a class act through and through. If he didn't suck so much and got the exposure of a more talented player, I think he could do so much good in the NFL - from reshaping it's image to promoting charities and general goodwill. That's just not going to happen though as one ring in this 3 ring circus.

    That crash was people from a town near me. I don't know the victims personally, but I know a lot of people that do. I'm not a big fan of Tebow as a QB, but he's a great man.

    The Jets are like the Jews who killed Jesus.

    That's a sig quote if I've ever seen one.

    That's my move; Wait until she's sleeping, leave a voicemail and take credit for the call.

    Sweet.

    Not sure how we got from Tebow calling an accident victim to here, but . . .








    Oh, and that was really nice of Tebow.

    But on the flip side, they were fire retardant. So you had that going for you.
