Before he played in his first game last month for the Rumble Ponies — the Mets’ Class AA affiliate — Binghamton had a touch of Tebow fever. Downtown businesses had perked up, counting on an influx of new customers. There were Tebow-theme menu items, like Beer Tree Brew Co.’s Tebow Time I.P.A., served at Craft Bar and Kitchen, and an array of Tebow-inspired sandwiches elsewhere. Local churches have coveted his presence.
Bob Jones University and the Bruins Foundation are hosting “An Evening with Tim Tebow”, presented by PlanFIRST, Thursday, March 15, at 7:30 p.m. in the Founder’s Memorial Amphitorium on the BJU campus. Tebow, a two-time national champion, first round NFL draft pick, Heisman Trophy winner and current professional baseball player with the New York Mets organization, will share how his testimony and faith have impacted his career in sports.
