Tim Tebow calls idea of public office run 'intriguing'

Could Tim Tebow make a scramble for the political arena if he can't get a gig in an NFL stadium?

The answer is yes. Well, maybe. Actually, it's unclear. But the out-of-work quarterback certainly left the door open for a career change when asked about a possible future in politics on Tuesday. 

"I don't know at this time in my life ... if there's a chance to make a difference someday at something, that's intriguing," Tebow told Ainsley Earhardt of Fox & Friends.

Tebow is still just 28 years old, certainly on the younger side for an elevated seat in public office. That said, the man remains a legendary figure in his native Florida and with the right campaign manager and the proper grooming, who's to say Tebowmania couldn't run wild in the political sector?

Remember, the "You're fired!" guy is on the cusp of claiming the Republican nomination for the office of President of the United States of America. Literally anything is possible now. We are into the great wide open.

We don't know Tebow's political leanings -- it's unclear if he even has political leanings -- and it's certainly possible Tebow hadn't even considered the possibility of a life in politics before a TV reporter brought it up before the back nine.

But Tebow said the thought was intriguing. Remember this. Don't pretend to be surprised when he rules us all.
