Tebow and Wade Receive A Bronx Cheer

From ESPN New York:
Tim Tebow has work to do if he's going to win over New York sports fans.

The new backup quarterback for the Jets was booed at Yankee Stadium on Sunday night when he was shown on the giant video board -- even though he was wearing a Yankees cap.

Sitting in the third row next to the Los Angeles Angels dugout, Tebow cracked a smile and acknowledged the camera. There was a smattering of cheers, but most of the initial reactions were boos.


Sitting next to Tebow was Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, also booed when he was shown on the scoreboard earlier in the game. But those boos quickly turned to cheers when Wade held up his Yankees cap.

Knicks rookie guard Iman Shumpert was also in attendance. Shumpert was the first of the three players shown on the big screen, receiving a nice round of applause.
To my knowledge, Shumpert was not sitting with Pope Tebow or Wade. At least I hope he wasn't.
