The Rush: Tebow Time runs out for the Mets

Big names from around the sports world are not exempt from suffering big losses.

For those of you daydreaming about Tebow Time at Flushing Meadows in September, we hate to be the barer of bad news, but that fantasy won’t come to fruition this season.  The dream of Tim Tebow making it to the Majors as a September call-up turned into a nightmare when the fan favorite suffered a broken hand while playing Double-A ball for the Mets organization.  Because the Mets are so bad this season, some thought Tebow might actually make it to the big show, but he’ll have to wait at least another season for his shot.

Taking an even bigger L is Iowa defensive tackle Brady Reiff who got busted by the cops in one of the stupidest ways in the history of “I did dumb s**t in college.” Reiff was having a fun night out on the town, got hammered, and tried to get home the responsible way, but calling an Uber.  He got into the car and quickly realized he wasn’t in fact in his Uber, but he had instead stepped into a police car.  You can’t make this stuff up.

And the “Biggest Loser of the Lot” award goes to an oldie-but-goodie, Ryan Lochte. You’ll have to watch the video to find out exactly what went down, but here’s a hint. When you break rules, don’t post about it on social media because you might just be risking your career. DOH!
