Earthly temptations do not affect Tim Tebow

Quarterback Tim Tebow concluded a whirlwind season on January 14 when the Denver Broncos lost to the New England Patriots in the AFC Divisonal playoffs. Four days later, he was at staying at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas for a Nike shoot. (Technically, the Hard Rock is in Paradise, Nevada, which includes much of the Strip, the airport and the aforementioned hotel.)

Innocuous enough except that, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal's Norm Clarke, the Hard Rock was hosting the Adult Video News Awards at the same time. (Possibly awkward, yes, but also a great premise for a bad sitcom that'll miraculously enjoy success despite much scrutiny, outrage and mock indignation from critics.)

Clarke breathlessly writes that "Veteran casino host Steve Cyr told a Las Vegas radio station on Friday that he saw the Denver Broncos quarterback walking through the casino the day the four-day Adult Entertainment Expo opened."

Scandalous.

Luckily, Tebow, whose religious beliefs were often a bigger story last season than his ability to make it as an NFL quarterback, didn't succumb to earthly temptations.

More Clarke: "A second source said Tebow, who was reportedly in town for a Nike shoot, stayed in a Hard Rock penthouse 'most of the time.'"

In a radio interview, Cyr noted that Tebow, his brother, and three friends did emerge from their rooms long enough to take in Cirque du Soleil's "O" at The Mirage, but Tebow didn't drink and "tipped well."

Which, we'd imagine, makes up a typical night out on the town for Tebow. The lesson: What stays in Vegas is not as important as what stays next door to you in Vegas.

Thankfully, Tebow emerged from Sin City unscathed. He was courtside at the Nuggets game Sunday night.

Great comment, bizona.  Seems like anything that has to do with Tim Tebow will draw attention.

Earthly temptations do not affect Tim Tebow

I think we have to cut CBS some slack here. After all, the biggest sporting events over the weekend were two boring all star games. The Super Bowl is a week away, but all those storylines were covered last week. There's not much else to write about.

However, if they had to do a story about Vegas, I'm guessing the story of the AVN awards show would be much more interesting and revealing than one about Tebow in Vegas.

Tebow in Vegas? Pretty much anything has to be more interesting! lol Tongue out

At the risk of getting flamed, you know Tebow got it on with those porn stars...in fact he probably had 3 at a time! But never fear. If the cameras aren't watching and the media dosen't have proof it is NOT a sin;) So let Tebowmania and his Bible regin forever!

In a related story, Tom Brady has once BEEN TO Las Vegas -- where they have held porn conventions AND Peyton Manning once spoke with his wife about Las Vegas -- where they have held porn conventions.

Are you freakin' kidding me that this somehow beat out anything else football related going on to make a "news" story? And an editor gave this a blessing for release? I think I'll get my remaining football updates from TMZ.

This tops the list of unworthy news. What is the point of this story anyway?

Why is this news?  Does anyone even PRETEND to be a news/sports journalist anymore?  Or is it just an older version of "He said/She said" and repetition of study hall gossip?
