    I'm watching ESPN, and I noticed the entire Tebow household had Bronco hats once he was selected. My question is, where do these hats come from and how does everyone in the house get one? Do they have a stash of hats from all 32 teams hidden somewhere? :cool:

    I have always wondered that as well. My best guess is that Tebow had an idea of the teams that were interested in him, and the NFL provides the hats for 'em.

    I was wondering the same thing. I'm thinking he and his agent had a list of Teams that were pretty high on drafting him and some that they heard from on the other end of the spectrum. I wouldn't put it past them/espn/nfl/whoever to have some boxes of Bronco, Patriot, Bills, etc hats in boxes available depending on who took him.

    I think they probably had hats from all 32 teams.

    I think there were 2-3 teams who sent him hats in case they took him on day 1.

    Broncos
    Bills
    Jags

    I bet they had all the possibilities ready - they can probably return all the others, so it's not as though it even costs much.

    I always thought it was interesting how they print up "Super Bowl Champion" hats/shirts for both teams (and do the same for many other championships/events). I understand they usually donate the other ones to 3rd world countries. That's nice, but then I also have images in my head of some country where everyone is convinced that the Patriots went 19-0.

    My favorite was seeing a random guy in Egypt with a Chicago Bears Super Bowl Champion shirt. I bet that thing would sell for some money on ebay as a gag gift to Bears fans.
