Fact: Jimmy Fallon is a “sports guy.” The late night talk show figurehead knows his “flagrant fouls” from his “five-for-fightings” and never shies away from the opportunity to show his sports chops–especially when it means giving a pro athlete or two a good ribbing
So when he created his “pros and cons” list for the impending NFL kickoff this Thursday, he gave the sports’ current headlines the real “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” treatment.
The SNL alum made light of a variety of NFL-based topics in witty fashin, but of course his first jab came at the expense of Tim Tebow–who is one of the few celebrities on the planet more notorious than Fallon himself.
Tebow was recently cut from the Philadelphia Eagles, which makes us wonder: Had he not been cut and at least rode the bench this NFL season, would Fallon have brought back his infamous “Tebowie” sketch?
We’ll just have to wait until Tebow’s next attempt to get back on the playing field.
