EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (PIX11) – One year ago he came to New York with huge fanfare, but today, we find out the Jets released Tim Tebow, the man expected to turn things around for the ‘so-so’ football team.

What’s with those burning flames that are quickly extinguished by, well, reality?

“Sports can really take a compelling story and move it forward which can sometimes thrust people way above the expectation of performance,” said Robert Boland, NYU professor of Sports Management.

And it’s not just sports. In a city full of greatness we see a lot of bitter-sweet moments, illustrated by the one-hit-wonder “Bitter Sweet Symphony”. By the way, what HAPPENED to the Verve?

Even Spiderman can’t string a web big enough to withstand it’s expectations on Broadway which quickly became overshadowed by a string of bizarre injuries and financial setbacks.

It seems the only thing to live up to its great expectations is the Book “Great Expectations” by Charles Dickens, an instant classic. But, then came the movie, which, was ultimately a flop.

So as for Tim Tebow’s career–at least he isn’t alone in falling a little short. And hey, we’ll always have fond memories of his innovative pose that swept the nation–forever known as tebowing.
