City Hall in Jersey City, New Jersey was evacuated today due to a routine Tim-Tebow-and-anthrax scare:

A letter to Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop containing white powder — and a picture of former New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow — caused the evacuation of City Hall today and although harmless, it was clearly meant to look like a chemical or biological threat.

But wait — it gets weirder! Apparently the envelope also contained “spiritual stuff. Heaven stuff.”

Of course, this kind of scare would have never happened in Florida, where pictures of Tebow and mysterious white powder are commonly exchanged as gifts.

I rather enjoyed this story, with a tinge of humor. Better than the talking head, suit angle.

Who in their right mind would have the idea of plotting this? Hope they catch this guy/chick. What a way to keep tebow in the media. And shame on si for making a joke about it
