Clever: The Lake Elsinore Storm (High Class A; California League) have landed squarely in the news, offering to trade its Rally Cop to the Denver Broncos for the suddenly expendable Tim Tebow.
“We’re not sure about Tim’s baseball past,” said Storm Vice President/General Manager Chris Jones, “but we are sure he could bring some of that Tebow magic to Lake Elsinore and would be a great addition to our ballclub.”
The Storm have started a grassroots campaign to let the Boncos know how serious they are with #TebowToTheStorm.
Now that the Broncos have signed Peyton Manning, Tebow will likely be heading to the bench or to another team, and the Storm will offer a great package to keep Broncos executive John Elway thinking about sending Tebow to Lake Elsinore.
“We know that Tim was the cause for late-game comebacks in Denver and we have our own leader of rallies, the Rally Cop. We would like to offer the Broncos the Rally Cop as well as the Grounds Crew Gorilla, winner of an MiLB Golden Bobble head last season, in exchange for Tebow,” said Jones.
The Storm will also be willing to rename their home Elway Stadium if the Broncos are willing to accept the offer. (Interestingly, we do know Broncos GM John Elway’s baseball past: he played for the Oneonta Yankees in the NY-Penn League in 1982, batting a solid .318.)
