Brewers reliever John Axford, having no doubt witnessed the incredible media attention paid to Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow simply arriving at training camp, sent out this tweet:

Not surprisingly Axford got some flak from what must be an absolutely amazing social intersection of Tim Tebow fans and Kim Kardashian fans, at which point he tweeted:

It’s never a great sign when you need four follow-up posts to explain your initial post, but Axford basically just made a variation of the same joke everyone makes about the Kardashians and based on his past tweeting he seems like a nice, funny, smart guy. Also, if what Axford said about their respective talent levels is true perhaps Tebow should try throwing with his pinky finger.
