Jimmy Fallon Reprises Tim Tebow/David Bowie Hybrid. With Peyton Manning officially joining the Denver Broncos Tuesday with a 5-year, $96 million contract, Jimmy Fallon decided to bring back “Tebowie,” one of his most popular characters, for last night’s show here on NBC. In the skit, Fallon sings the lyrics to Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust” but with a Tebow/Manning twist (The Huffington Post posted the video online, so watch there before it gets taken down).
Some of the lyrics below, however:
“Peyton was a Colt, screwed up neck and screwed last season / Spent a year on the bench, and while he was sitting, Tebow was winning / Tebow was the craze, everything was going great / And then came John Elway and he kicked him right in his balls / They replaced him with Peyton / Tebow got shown the back door and now he’s a virgin no more.”
Fallon ended the skit on a very hopeful note, saying that Tebow will rise again. Could that be with the Eagles? The20’s @dhm has his own thoughts over at The Philly Post and thinks that the Eagles should go all-in to acquire Tebow, stating that a Tebow signing would lead to one of two things:
“The good Christian role model helping the run-oriented Eagles to a Super Bowl victory, or Andy Reid getting fired. These are the only two outcomes Eagles fans hope for at the start of every season.”
