3rd Grader Trades Tim Tebow Action Figure For Two M&M’s, Broken Yo-Yo
WHITE PLAINS, NY – Eight-year old Nicholas Baird, a third grader at Ridgeview Elementary school, traded his Tim Tebow action figure to classmate Chloe DeLucia in exchange for two M&M’s peanut candies and a broken Duncan yo-yo, sources confirmed today.
“I was hoping to get a little more for Tim,” said Baird, after consuming the sweets. “I’d only had him for a year, and I had to spend two weeks allowance to get him. But Chloe’s offer was the only one I got, so I had to take what I could get.”
“Frankly, I think he was lucky to get as much as he did,” said NFL.com analyst Greg Rosenthal. “If I was in Chloe’s position, I would have offered one M at the most, plain not peanut, along with maybe a worn-down pencil nub. Take it or leave it.”
Baird, a lifelong New York Jets fan, purchased the 6″ tall MacFarlene action figure in 2012, shortly after the team acquired Tebow from the Denver Broncos. At the time, Baird envisioned playing with the toy for years to come. But Tebow’s recent release by the team made the doll expendable.
“I’m grateful to Tim for the time he spent in my toy chest, and I’m sorry things didn’t work out for us as well as I’d hoped,” concluded Baird. “I wish him all the best as he undertakes the next phase of his career as the boyfriend of Chloe’s Cinderella doll. Meanwhile, I’m going to ask (classmate Camden Rogers) if he’ll swap his glow-in-the-dark light saber for my Mark Sanchez figure. The clock is ticking for me to get rid of that thing.”
