One of the beauties of being a sports geek in Canada: No ESPN. It taints our collective unconscious enough already since it does influences TSN, but you can avoid directly dealing with candidates for sainthood such as Skip Bayless, who actually claimed that Florida Gators QB Tim Tebow "is the next Favre."
Granted, Bayless had more basis for that claim than he did when he tried to out Troy Aikman several years ago. It's a blog rule to avoid two-paragraph posts, but this is worth it for Stephen A. Smith's reaction. Screamin' A might not recover:
"Sixty thousand plus yards that Brett Favre has passed for. He's going to the Hall of Fame and Tim Tebow, who hasn't played one single, one single football down in the NFL, is going to be the next Brett Favre."(Clip via NESWSports.com).
