Now that the Tebow baseball saga has reached it’s conclusion (or perhaps it’s just getting underway), Liz Roscher joins Chris Cwik on the StewPod this week to reflect on the spectacle that is Tim Tebow. Should baseball fans care about Tebow’s baseball abilities, or is this nothing more than a publicity stunt?
