New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow attended Sunday night's Yankees-Angels game in the Bronx and heard a number of boos when he was shown on the video board. Tebow was seated next to Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade, who was still in town after his team defeated the New York Knicks, 93-85, earlier on Sunday. Tebow acknowledged the crowd and the camera once he realized he was on the video screen and eventually heard a few cheers from his new hometown fans. The QB was acquired by the Jets last month from the Denver Broncos in a highly-publicized trade.
