The Republican National Convention won’t have #Tommy. But it will have #Timmy.

According to the New York Times, former (but still aspiring) NFL quarterback Tim Tebow will speak at next week’s event in Cleveland. Which will make him, frankly, the most accomplished quarterback in town, from a postseason standpoint.

Other scheduled speakers from the world of sports include UFC president Dana White and golfer Natalie Gulbis.

Brady isn’t on the list; Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump had said he planned to ask Brady to speak at the event.

Tebow is scheduled to speak on the fourth and final evening of the event, which will end with Trump’s speech accepting the party’s nomination.

In a fairly recent FOX News profile, Tebow hinted at a future in politics. Next week’s speech could be his first major foray into the arena. Barring a change in the Constitution, however, the earliest he could run for the office Trump currently seeks would be 2024, since Tebow isn’t yet 35.

Tebow also wasn’t born in the United States. Not that that issue has ever been discussed by the current Republican nominee regarding any Democratic or Republican presidential hopefuls.
