Last month, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen breathlessly reported it’s a “virtual certainty” that Tim Tebow will be a Jaguar in 2013.
I don’t think that term means what he thinks it means. (Unless he thinks it means “95 percent” certain.)
Either way, it sure sounds like a lot less than a virtual certainty that Tebow will be a member of the Jaguars in 2013. Which means that the next time someone at ESPN feels compelled to report that anything months away from happening is a “virtual certainty,” it’s a virtual certainty that they won’t.
