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.

Really?  How ignorant of an article is this. I hope you all realize that the hotel he satyed in has over 5000 rooms and is a 4 star resort. Maybe he just wanted to stay someplace nice.  How awful a kid with morals...what we really need is another Michale Vick as a role model .

I'm not a tebow fan, but good for him for being a good tipper.  We see plenty of athletes w/ much more money be far cheaper w/ tips - lebron is notoriously cheap and treats servers horribly.  Big Ben doesn't tip either, he just forces it in.

Agreed.  Regardless of whatever your beliefs, who cares at this point?  Let the guy be judged on what he does on the field.  Tom Brady left his impregnated girlfriend for a pretty but brainless broad.  He gets a pass.  Why?  Religion?  Get a clue CBS!  Oops, that's it!  CBS!  Could be ABC, NBC (the worst), CNN.  Yea, you get the picture.  It's the MOONSTRUCK MEDIA!

I think Tebow just took a dump.  CBS better get crackin' on an article about it.

Why is this a story?  The QB has proven nothing on the field and has done nothing but good things off the field.  Why is the media still writing about him?  Isn't there a game being played on Sunday that is a little more important?

Hopefully the experienced porn starts were able to show him the right directon to stick it.  Most likely however the bellboy intercepted.  Those who preach usually have something going on - they don't want us to know about.
