This… this!… classifies as news ESPN thinks you need to know.  Tim Tebow tweeting about Troy Polamalu’s retirement.

Not the retirement itself.

Not a tweet from the player who retired.

A tweet from Tim Tebow about a player who retired.

And it’s not like Tebow and Polamalu have some kind of storied history together or anything.  They were never teammates in college or the NFL.  They didn’t even have a long rivalry.  The only anecdote that pops up on a quick Google search is this Tebow story about Polamalu during the Steelers-Broncos playoff game all those years ago, which is a very cool story in its own right.  But that’s their only connection

If ESPN is going to start sharing random Tim Tebow tweets as important news, at least make it important ones about puppies.
