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.

Earthly temptations do not affect Tim Tebow

If tebow was a muslim or a jew, they wouldn't dare question anything he does, no matter how religious and/or bizarre?  Christians are in play because the left wing progressive media sees the christian evangelical wing of the GOP as the biggest threat to their godless/statist vsion for the nation.  Anyone who practices christianity openly, publicly and joyfully is considered a freak, a lunatic who must be ridiculed and marginalized before he influences others to follow his path.  It's sickening.

Earthly temptations do not affect Tim Tebow

As a Christian I'm really getting tired of the Tebow-mania and the over-analyzing of everything he does/did/didn't do/doesn't do/will do/will not do.  It's sickening.  The guys is a Christian who lives his life with a sense of morales and from what I can tell through TV seems to be a pretty nice guy.  The ONLY thing I don't like about him (as a diehard Raider fan) is the team he plays for.  Instead of him giving "shout-outs" after a game to his homies, friends, his mother, or whoever, he thanks his Lord Jesus Christ.  To write this article titled "Earthly Temptations Do Not Affect Tebow" is a bit out of line thou.  How do we know he wasn't affected?  He could've spotted someone in the lobby and whisked them to his room without being seen, ordered an adult movie to watch in his room, or whatever.  I'm not bashing him or trying to find fault in him but I really wish people will stop trying to make Tebow some sort of "Super Saint" or like he's God because in reality he is a MAN just like all of us.  He's a man just like me. I'm a Christian and I'm capable of mistakes and so is Tim Tebow.  Tim Tebow IS NOT JESUS CHRIST.  Every step he makes is not news worthy.  We don't need to know every time he stops at a traffic light, what hotel he stayed in, if he has friends that are members of a gang, if he has a girl friend, etc.  All of that has nothing to do with his Christianity and beliefs.  The fact he stayed in Vegas in a 5,000 room hotel at the same time as an Adult Film Convention doesn't make him more or less of a Christian.  What happens if he gets a speeding ticket?  Then CBS will be reporting and headlining an article  "Ticket Tebow gets Ticketed - how can a Christian speed - he's a hypocrite!" 

I'm happy he is visible in his faith.  My prayer is he doesn't make a mistake because if he does it will damage Christian credibility for quit some time.

Really CBS? Since when are you worried about (S)Ain't Tebow and whether or not he was at a porno convention? Save this crap for the tabloids, you're better than this. It' bad enough that people think because he's so "saintly" that it's going to make him into the next Peyton Manning.

Earthly temptations do not affect Tim Tebow

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Most of those who get all irritated over the Little Timmy Tebow circus don't much have a problem with Tim. Oh, some of them think that he and his fellow Evangelicals are blasphemers or heretics, but that's only fair, because they're none too shy about saying the same about others, notably Roman Catholics. And there are militant atheists like Bill Maher--whose smiling face will crack any day now, revealing the foul demon which has possessed him--of whom there are fortunately but a few. No, their concerns aren't what exercises folks the most. What does is the risible manner in which his legions of fanatics behave. It is in no way a stretch to think that many of them are in danger of making of him an Idol before Whom they worship.

Dudes and dudettes, if you recognize yourself in this, then get help. If not, then consult your mental health professional anyway. You may be in even deeper than I'm willing to imagine.
