Will Mr. Tebow Tackle His Mother On Stage?

I get that - for whatever reason - there was a moment when Tim Tebow filled a weird retro cultural spot. You know, the good boy religious loves his mother would never have naughty sex with a woman until he was married NFL "star" (well, he was never quite that, but...). Still that cultural moment was always a bit weak and I think we've mostly gone on to "Tebow who? Was he on Season 6 of American Idol?"

A gig's a gig.
There are several notable women speaking. They include Pam Bondi, the Florida attorney general, who tangled on television with the CNN anchor Anderson Cooper after the Orlando, Fla., nightclub massacre; Eileen Collins, the first woman to command a space shuttle mission; Gov. Mary Fallin of Oklahoma; Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa and Mr. Trump’s wife, Melania.

There are a few African-Americans, like Jamiel Shaw Sr., who became an outspoken advocate for tougher immigration laws after his son was killed in 2008 by an undocumented immigrant; and Darryl Glenn, who is running for Senate in Colorado.

From sports there is Mr. Tebow, the former quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner who is known for his conservative views; Dana White, the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, a mixed martial arts organization; and Ms. Gulbis.
