For Tim Tebow, it's a new team and a new season but the same drama when it comes to NFL analysts scrutinizing his every move – this time with the New England Patriots during training camp.
Much like with his former team, the New York Jets, speculation as to how exactly the Patriots will use the so-called "polarizing" Christian quarterback is rampant. Will Tebow make the team? Will he play tight end? Will he ever throw a pass? Will coach Bill Belichick address Tebow's huge fan base wisely, if at all?
Boston media has been all over "Tebow Watch 2013," including giving Bostonians a refresher "course" on what all the fuss is about in regards to the Heisman Trophy winner from the University of Florida and former Denver Broncos player. more >>

After over a billion dollars were spent on renovating Madison Square Garden, the World's Most Famous Arena will only have 10 years at its current location.
The New York City Council held a vote on Wednesday to try and limit the building's lease over Penn Station to 10 years. The council voted 47 - 1 in favor of moving the Garden to a new location to make way for an improved Penn Station.
"Madison Square Garden will have to move, and I think this permit sends the message that that work needs to begin now," City Council Speaker Christine Quinn said to the Daily News. "We need to make sure Penn Station becomes what we need it to be, a really 21st century grand entrance into the greatest city in the world, not ... what Sen. [Daniel] Moynihan or others historically described as a bunch of rat tunnels that lead people in and out of the city every day." more >>
The Houston Rockets can not make up their mind concerning Jeremy Lin, with the newest NBA rumors saying they are actively seeking to trade him despite their claims to be happy with him on the team.

Jeremy Lin, point guard of the Houston Rockets, will be sharing a stage with Francis Chan to share his life testimony as an NBA player at a San Francisco evangelistic conference on Sept. 7, and will help answer the question, "What really matters in life?"
"Do you ever feel like you are just keeping up with various roles that society has labeled you with and are just going through the motions to keep up an image of an identity that isn't truly yours?" the organization, Identity Unleashed, writes on their site.
"We all have an identity, and now is time to unleash it," write the organizers, who are hoping the night can "empower and help participants to define the core of who they are and discover what their identity is in a positive light," according to The Gospel Herald. more >>
