he survey, released Wednesday by Destination America, shows Obama was also soundly beaten out by Big Bird (23%) and Lady Gaga (15%).

In Obama's defense, many of those polled probably thought Big Bird meant a succulent Butterball turkey and Lady Gaga — a walking ham sandwich.

For any of those Americans saving a seat for Tebow, hold your stuffing.  The closest you'll get to saying grace with the Wildcat quarterback is praying for him to get into Thursday night's game on TV.  The Jets play the New England Patriots in the third game of the annual football extravaganza.  It'll be about the same time the third round of leftover turkey sandwiches come out.

Other fun facts discovered from the multi-selection survey include:

—44% said pumpkin was their favorite pie.

—64% of men said they were looking forward to watching football on TV, with 43% of women preferring the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.

—"Family" beat out "food" as the favorite part of the holiday — but it was close 68% to 53%.

While a large percentage of Jets fans would probably say that Mark Sanchez was the cause of a lot of indigestion so far this season — 15 percent of those surveyed said the in-laws made them reach for the Pepto.

Anonymous fan sends Tebow odd gift

Via Helmet2Helmet:

Tim Tebow has been unhappy as of late due to his ever-shrinking role in the Jets’ offense, showing disinterest both through the press and on the sidelines.

Leave it to one of his devout followers to turn the backup quarterback’s frown upside down.

On Tuesday, New York Post reporter Bart Hubbuch snapped a photo of a “You’re Special” balloon bouquet, which was sent to Tebow by an anonymous fan.

Hubbuch’s colleague, Jane McManus, noted that Tebow thought it was “nice,” and said these kinds of things “happen sometimes.”

Hey, they don’t call them ‘Tebow-maniacs’ for nothing.
