Kindle Free Pick of the Week: The Gospel According to John

On Super Bowl weekend, only natural to have a football free pick to keep you entertained until gametime.

Gary Sapp, an avid sports fanatic, tackles the phenomenon and controversy of Tim Tebow.

During the 2011 season, Tim Tebow, led the Denver Broncos on an improbable playoff run that cumulated with a breathtaking overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

One month later, John Elway, Bronco legend turned General Manager and President of Football Operations, stunned the pro football world by signing Payton Manning and trading Tim Tebow away to the New York Jets.

Fast forward to the summer of 2013 and Tebow found himself again a man without a team. The New England Patriots became the third organization to trade or outright release the embattled signal-caller.

His detractors say he’s finished. His fans say he’s only getting started.

Gary Sapp finds himself allied with Tebow’s critics. He paints an unflattering but fair picture of a player who struggled to improve as a passer because of his poor mechanics and his inability to read NFL defenses.

The question, however, still remains. Has the NFL seen the last of the former Heisman Trophy Winner? Or did John Elway save us from Tim Tebow?

Rick Talks to Usain Bolt on 'Tech of Sports'

Usain Bolt joins Rick on “Tech of Sports” discussing his passion for music and favorite products at the Gibson tent at CES 2018.

He was insightful, representing Philips Bass +  new Headphones at the show. In addition to his countless accolades on the track, the last six or so years has introduced the world to not just Usain Bolt the Olympic medalist, but also a regular guy who’s passionate about music and likes to DJ around his races.

An eight-time Olympic gold medalist, Bolt won the 100 m, 200 m and 4 × 100 m relay at three consecutive Olympic Games, although he subsequently forfeited one of the gold medals (as well as the world record set therein) nine years after the fact due to a teammate’s disqualification for doping offences. He gained worldwide popularity for his double sprint victory at the 2008 Beijing Olympics in world record times. Bolt is the only sprinter to win Olympic 100 m and 200 m titles at three consecutive Olympics (2008, 2012 and 2016); this is a feat referred to as the “triple double” that will be very difficult for anyone to duplicate.

He now turns his attention to music and talks with Rick!
