Fan's customized jersey raises eyebrows at Rangers game

Hyped college quarterback Tim Tebow never found success in the NFL, but that didn't seem to stop one New York Rangers fan from trying to transfer Tebow's powers to hockey.

A fan was spotted wearing a customized Tim Tebow Rangers jersey at Madison Square Garden for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals on Sunday. The jersey was not lucky for the Rangers however, as they lost, 2-0, to fall to the brink of elimination in the series against the Lightning thanks to a 3-2 series deficit.

Tebow had a brief career in New York with the Jets, but he threw just eight passes and ran 32 times in his sole season in the Big Apple. Tebow recently signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles, making the Rangers' fan's jersey all the more perplexing.
