UNDERNEATH IT ALL: ESPN’s “PTI” on Friday included a discussion about Broncos QB Tim Tebow’s commercial for Jockey, which is set to debut today. ESPN's Tony Kornheiser said, "The most famous Jockey underwear model was the ridiculously handsome Jim Palmer, and his posters in the '70s and '80s were quite scandalous. Tebow's not a scandalous guy. He'll probably wear underpants underneath his underpants. I just think we haven't seen anything yet. All we've seen is him in a T-shirt." ESPN's Michael Wilbon said, "When you got a lockout coming up and no salary, I'm going to give Mr. Tebow an 'A' for being smart. It doesn't matter what the endorsement is" ("PTI," ESPN, 3/25).
