Just curious. Because I'm not a parent yet, and so I don't know what the protocol is for this one. But look at that cape and tell me how you'd feel about your kid gracing it on one of the 364 days that exist outside of Oct. 31. I mean, that would be a pretty weak Halloween costume, too, but at least you can freely dress however you want on that day. But at what point have we gone too far with the Tim Tebow marketing machine?

I'd like to believe that a hefty percentage of the Tebow products on the market are both manufactured and purchased with at least some irony in mind. If you're wearing a WWTD? (What Would Tebow Do?) t-shirt, you probably have a sense of humor about it. And it's safe to say that, generally, only little girls in the Bieber stage or women with a sense of irony are walking around in shirts like these. Understandable.

But why a cape? If your kid loves Tebow, why not, I dunno, buy a cheap jersey? I suppose it's refreshing to see Tebow compared to someone other than the son of God, but Superman is still a bit silly.

Bleacher Creature Toys makes and sells the Tebow superhero cape, which was brought to our attention by Darren Rovell on Twitter. They claim that a Jets rendition of the product will be available in August, which indicates that sales went well with the Florida Gators version ($14.99 US) that you see in this post.

Excuse the cliché, but only in America....

And, of course, made in China....

And I just spent 283 words on a cape for 5-year-olds. Only in May, June or maybe July....
