"It's Hard to Be a Saint in the City": A Playlist for Tim Tebow

Posted: Updated:

In Tim Tebow, I trust. Indeed, you might even call me a Jew For Tebow. Having been born in New York City myself, I feel it is my honor and duty to officially welcome Tim to his new home town as a New York City. Will it be hard to be a saint in the city -- to borrow a phrase from area favorite son Bruce Springsteen? Perhaps, but if ever a city was full of souls who could use a little saving, Tebow's clearly found the right place. I say all this as someone who now lives in the obvious moral center of the universe -- Los Angeles. Still, as a recovering New Yorker, I think Tim should be very excited to be in New York - assuming he love good theater and great bagels. Go Jets. Go Tebow. And now go add your own New York City songs for Tim Tebow below.
