Tim Tebow Released by New York Jets

After just one season, the New York Jets have decided to part ways with former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback for the Florida Gators, Tim Tebow. The move comes just day after the Jets drafted former West Virginia Mountaineers quarterback, Geno Smith in the second round (39th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft.

The Jets have spent the last couple of months looking to upgrade the QB position. On March 11th, they signed long time Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback, David Garrard. The two new additions gave them six quarterbacks on the active roster (Tebow, Smith, Garrad, Mark Sanchez, Greg McElroy and Matt Simms). Something had to give.

Baseball Card Vandals - Bryan and Beau Abbott hit the Big Leagues

Here is a real life example of "One man's trash is another man's treasure." Remember all those "common" baseball cards that you threw out years ago because you thought they were worthless? Well, Bryan and Beau Abbott didn't throw them out. They "modified" them. Then they started posting their cardboard works-of-art online back in December 2012 and the site went viral. They have been mentioned on the MLB Network, Funny or Die and Yahoo Sports.

They post two new cards every day. Most of the cards are pretty modest, but there are a few coarse ones as well. Overall, they are pretty amusing. Check them out here.
