Um, so, yeah, you'll be happy to know that the whole Tebow mania thing hasn't died down in the Mile High City. Not in the slightest. Apparently, being utterly eviscerated by the Patriots around this time last week has done absolutely nothing to dampen the spirits of Denverites. Exhibit A: When Brad Paisley brought old #15 up during "I'm Still a Guy," recreating an onstage moment from some two years ago at the University of Florida's O'Connell Center, the crowd lost its ever loving mind and let out a deafening roar, alternately chanting "Tebow! Tebow! Tebow!" and screaming their brains out.
