Billy Crystal stopped by Sportscenter Wednesday night to promote his new movie, Parental Guidance. In between swapping Ted Williams stories with ESPN baseball reporter Tim Kurkjian, the comedian and noted sports fan offered some sage advice to embattled quarterback (and butt of many a virgin joke) Tim Tebow: "Convert" to Judaism.
The Twitterverse also seemed to support Crystal's suggestion:
When asked about his pick in January's BCS National Championship game between Notre Dame and Alabama, Crystal responded that he was rooting for the Fighting Irish, since his favorite Jewish university doesn't participate in football.
"Listen, I was pulling for Yeshiva, but they don't have a team," Crystal said.
