  • Tim Tebow gets second straight Spring Training invite

Now a full-time college football analyst, Tebow decided to make a run at his childhood dream of playing professional baseball two years ago.

More cynical minds see Tebow's invite as a promotional stunt, that will allow the Mets to sell more spring training tickets.

He played three years of professional football in the NFL as well, spending two years with the Denver Broncos and one season with the New York Jets. With the major league camp invite, Tebow will have a chance to compete for a major league spot on the team, which means he could play in NY or be added to the roster later if there were an injury. While those are not normally the stats that would garner a big-league camp invite, the 30-year-old Tebow is seemingly on an accelerated schedule because of his age and his fame.

He last played with the St. Lucie Mets of the Florida State League at the single-A level.

Google Cloud to expand infrastructure with new regions, submarine cables
The new connectivity is set to come from a set of three undersea cables that are expected to become operational in 2019. Google also announced plans for three new undersea cables that will connect its data centers around the world.

"In looking back, there's a lot of ups and downs, a lot of learning moments", Tebow said then. Last year, Tebow went 4 for 27 in games before heading off to Class A Columbia.
