Tim Tebow's relentless pursuit of failure

As Tim Tebow faces possible humiliation at Mets camp, he's easy to mock. And yet he's just as easy to admire. That's because Tebow has embraced, perfected and, yes, even profited from defeat.

On the first day, Tim Tebow spoke

With his trademark smile and charisma, Tim Tebow added a new line to his resume: spring training attendee. What did the QB-turned-outfielder say at Mets camp, and how many BP homers did he blast?

Tebow 'not going to worry' what people think

Tim Tebow draws a crowd in Florida, unlike the other New York Mets minor leaguers at spring training on Monday, but said he's "not going to worry" about what everyone's thinking.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Fledgling OF Tim Tebow, in a press conference before his first spring-training workout with the Mets, was asked if he got a fair shake with the Jets in 2012. He laughed. "Where did that come from? Been holding onto that one for three years?" he asked. He went on to say, "That's not for me to decide at all. The one thing with the Jets situation was I learned so much from it. I'm grateful for the highs there, which weren't really many. Not necessarily the most fun situation. I think that everything happens for a reason. I learned so much from it."

The New York Mets are selling these at First Data Field this spring training. The jerseys retail for $120. At the team store, they were among the most prominently placed articles of merchandise.

Mark Saxon ESPN Staff Writer 

The New York Mets already are selling Tim Tebow T-shirts at their Port St. Lucie, Florida spring training stadium. Before his first professional baseball game, outside of the Arizona Fall League, Tebow, the Heisman trophy winner and ex-NFL quarterback, was asked what he thought of being marketed by the team. Tebow arrived at spring training well before Mets minor-leaguers were required to report. "I'm not going to worry about what everyone's writing or what everyone's thinking or however I'm being marketed," Tebow said. "I think for me, I just want to be able to continue the process, enjoy the process, enjoy every day and get to know my teammates and have fun out there."
