Saturday Night Live Tim Tebow
December 23, 2011 by staff
It’s just a rumor, but Bonnie Fuller’s Hollywood Life.com is reporting that a source says “SNL” would love to book Tebow to host once the football season ends.
The article doesn’t say the NBC show has contacted Tebow, 24, just that producers “(realize) it would be HUGE ratings and they are hoping he will say yes.”
Yes, people would tune in — we’d be among them. Athletes, including quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, have hosted the show, so there is precedent. But if he’s approached, Tebow’s going to say no, and he’s smart to do so.
First off, whatever his athletic skills, he’s not going to be comfortable standing up there delivering the traditional opening monologue.
The skits themselves are a whole different thing. Manning actually took part in a memorable sketch where he played off his nice guy image, terrorizing a bunch of grade-school football players. (At one point, Manning clonks a kid in the head with a pass and then yells at him: “Get your head outta your a**! You SUCK!” He later shows them how to break into a car.)
