The Sports Kings: Tebow-Mania Running Wild…

Tebow-mania continues to soar to new heights.

Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow was named America’s favorite professional athlete in a recent ESPN poll.

Tebow ranked atop the list for the month of December.

In the 18 years of the ESPN Sports Poll, only 11 different athletes have been number-one in the monthly calculated poll.

That list includes Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods and LeBron James.

Tebow is also just the sixth different athlete to finish first since 2007.  The others are Brett Favre, Peyton Manning, Woods and King James.
