On March 31, 2012, comedian and educator Bill Cosby is going to perform in Denver. He hopes he has good weather for his gig out there, but to make sure that happens we should all call Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow to make sure it's happening. Check it out after the jump.
We can definitely add Cosby to the legion of Tebow fans. Cosby likes football players and that's what he sees Tebow as: a football player.
Cos also mentions Joe Kapp. He played for California in college and lost in the Rose Bowl before he moved to professional ball. The Washington Redskins drafted him in the 18th round of the 1959 but he went to the CFL after the Skins didn't want him. By the mid-1960s, the Minnesota Vikings brought him back to the States. He had a brief four year career in the NFL, but he did lead the Vikings to a 12-2 record during the 1969 regular season and made it all the way to the Super Bowl that season.
I guess Cosby's point is that Kapp was a player who many thought couldn't succeed in the NFL and wound up proving them wrong when he finally got the chance.
