Bill Cosby can deliver punch lines and Jell-O pitches (not to mention rock some technicolored sweaters). Now he’s delivering this message: Tim Tebow is no joke, and you’d better buy what he’s selling.
Cosby posted a YouTube video in which he does his best John Madden impression — “Boom! Boom!” — and advises Tebow to watch “old films of Joe Kapp.” Good thing he didn’t recommend the “new films of Joe Kapp.”
It’s clear Cosby, who played two seasons of football at Temple University, is fully behind Tebow. And Tebow is appreciative of adding yet another backer after his 6-1 start as the Broncos’ QB, tweeting to Cosby: “Thank you Mr. Cosby! Really appreciate your support! Big fan of yours…and Jell-o too haha MT.”
Maybe the two can meet over an ice-cold bowl of the lime-green stuff March 31, when Cosby is scheduled to visit Denver on his tour. At age 74.
