To be filed under the "Are you serious?" file, a group of Jacksonville Jaguars fans have started a petition to President Barack Obama to intervene on their behalf to urge Jags GM David Caldwell to stop ignoring fans' pleas and sign Tim Tebow, per ESPN.com.
It's understood from watching and listening to Obama that he is a big sports fan, but given things like the economy and the deficit here at home, plus all the fires abroad from Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and North Korea, just to name a few, the President should have plenty on his plate to keep him busy with more high priority matters.
Caldwell has already said the Jaguars would pass on signing Tebow, who grew up in Jacksonville and later became a star at the University of Florida, where he won the Heisman Trophy.
Tebow was released by the New York Jets shortly after the conclusion of the draft.
