Marvel, ESPN team up for Tebow time
Although I’m not a big sports guy, I am aware of the cultural phenomenon that is Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow–mostly because of the Tebowing blog someone showed me some time back. And since the guy apparently already has a superhero name and a healing factor that rivals Wolverine, why not just go all the way and turn him into a Marvel superhero?
Marvel and ESPN, both part of Disney, have teamed up to create three pieces of art that ESPN’s SportsCenter and NFL studio programming will feature throughout the weekend, by comic artists Bong Dazo (above), Scott Koblish and Todd Nauck. The 144-second piece features a voice-over from NFL Sunday Countdown host Chris Berman. The video was up on YouTube, but has since been removed, but you can watch for it on ESPN this weekend.
