It's all Tebow, all the time here in Denver. Just in case you haven't grown tired of the wall-to-wall Tebow coverage, here's yet another piece devoted to the Denver Broncos QB, whose renown is steadily reaching mythical proportions. This one's from ESPN, and it began airing earlier this week.
If you haven't seen it yet, it's a short, four-and-a-half-minute-long piece called Tebow Through the Years, and it features "Heatbeat," the Fray's new single, as the soundtrack for the montage, along with frontman Isaac Slade providing the voiceover. "Denver, baby," says Slade, explaining how he became involved. "Small town." Slade filmed the segment at the Hudson Hotel in New York recently at the behest of ESPN producers.
