Sometimes, we all just need a little pick-me-up at the office. Just something to know people care.
New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow received exactly that on Tuesday.
An "anonymous fan" sent Tebow a bouquet of balloons bearing the phrase, "You're special," according to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post. Hubbuch posted on Twitter (with the photo above): "The 'You're Special' bouquet that Tebow received today, supposedly from an anonymous fan. (Teammate maybe?)"
After Tebow's previous week, in which he was bashed by anonymous teammates, the balloons surprise must have made the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner smile. ... Because, sometimes even Tim Tebow needs to be told he's special, right?
Perhaps the most bizarre thing is that it's not the first time it's happened to the quarterback. On Tuesday, ESPN New York's Jane McManus posted on Twitter, "Mystery fan sends Tebow 'You are Special' balloon bouquet. He said it was nice, happens sometimes."
