Tim Tebow's "Through My Eyes" Released Today

Tim Tebow's much-anticipated memoir "Through My Eyes" is releasing today -- you can pick it up at any bookstore or order it online, as many already have. It is currently No. 8 on the Amazon ranking of sports books, but I anticipate it will surge to No. 1 -- and eventually into the Top 20 of all book sales. Full book review coming later this week.

Tim Tebow on His Motivations

From the essential Alligator Army:

"Being a role model is huge. That’s so much more important than scoring touchdowns or trying to win championships because at the end of the day, that’s just a game. If you can encourage someone, inspire someone and put a smile on their face, that’s actually meaningful. That actually changes peoples' lives, and that’s what I’m in it for."

-- Tim Tebow, from a speech at the Winged Foot Scholar-Athlete Award banquet.

Tebow's new book comes out Tuesday. Already getting emails from folks who pre-ordered the autographed version and it has arrived at their houses. Full review and coverage coming all next week.

Tim Tebow In New York City

Tim Tebow is in New York City today, at an event at Macy's in Herald Square for Jockey. Should be a lot of fun.

I got invited to attend, but it is my older son's 5th birthday party today.

Consequently, Tim should consider this an open invite to drop by -- our apartment in Brooklyn is only a 25-minute drive from Macy's.

I mean, as long as he is in New York City....

5/30 in Jacksonville at Books-a-Million on Marsh Landing Parkway.

6/4 in Denver at the Tattered Cover (one of my favorite bookstores in the world).

6/5 in Colorado Springs at Sam's Club on Woodman Rd.

6/9 in Gainesville at Walmart on Archer Rd.

Expect big crowds, but should be a great scene at each stop. Presume that there will be a lot of media appearances and availability around the release.

Tim Tebow Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic

Today and tomorrow are the first Tim Tebow Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic. Check out the details here.

Maybe next year I will get an invite as a "celebrity" participant -- although I don't golf, so where I really would add value is as a guest commentator. Get on that, XV!

"Through My Eyes" Out Soon

Thanks to Teblog reader Kat for sending me a note about pre-ordering "Through My Eyes" on Barnes and Noble's website. She noticed something on the page, and I'll try to explain it:

Apparently, you can get a signed edition, and it's only a dollar more than the standard hardcover price. It also appears to come out a week earlier (5/24) than the standard edition (5/31).

Sometimes bookstore web sites can get these little details wrong, but it certainly seems like something interesting to look into, if you were planning on getting the book.
