Hold a halftime ceremony celebrating the 2009 Florida Gators national championship? Check. When the Denver Broncos are in town? Check. With Tim Tebow on the team? Check. In the home of the rival Miami Hurricanes? Check.
Oh, and Tim Tebow starting at quarterback for the Broncos? Check. Check. Check.
The Miami Dolphins, despite being 0-4, must be smiling collectively as an organization. In fact, ticket sales for the Oct. 23 game against the Broncos increased greatly on Tuesday, reports the South Florida Sun Sentinel (via NFL.com):
On Tuesday, more than 2,000 tickets sold for the game on the secondary market through sites like Stubhub.com, according to a source. That equaled the previous six weeks of sales for the game.
That's impressive all right, but as the article goes on to point out, there are still roughly 30,000 tickets available to sell before Oct. 23. Seems like Tebow's elevation to starter is something that could bring out thousands, even tens of thousands to a football game people might not have had interest in before the move.
