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

I was curious to see how many people would bang on CBS when I saw they were running this story. I wasn't shocked to see how many of you tools jumped on CBS for this story because that is what some of you fools think makes you intellectual when you bang on CBS for story selection. How many other places have you seen this exact same story? ...Everywhere! Get over being media critics and comment actual facts in the story. I am not a CBS honk, but I do think it is as good of a sports site as many others out there.

If Tebow was at the porn convention trying to convince the actors that what they are doing is wrong, then that would be a story, maybe. This is a massive waste of our time

getting back to GOD...aka THE BLOW.  nobody is this pure, probably not even mother teresa. she admitted to sinning.  this has gone beyond extreme hypocrisy of the perfect human on earth. from thinking he just inventing kneeling or was the first great in the leader in the NFL

I CANT WAIT UNTIL THE BLOW pulls a tiger woods act. OH YOU KNOW ITS GOING TO HAPPEN...nobody is that pure and nobody even claims to be that pure.  cbs reporting this has just made a mockery of the words... religion, humilty, spirituality, HONESTY, integrity, etc etc ETC.

STOP IT CBS. the blow is not anymore deserving of Gods love than the next person who goes to vegas and doesnt drink or gamble. i cant believe cbs kisses this guys ass with each bowel movement.

I REPEAT...STOP IT CBS.  KARMA....cant wait for KARMA....OH IT WILL HAPPEN and i will be right there with all the millions of other haters who are SICK AND TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT THE PURENESS of THE BLOW laughing our asses off at the fraud!
The hypocrite is you. Tim Tebow really does seem to be this pure, and good for him. Instead of eagerly trying to knock him down, you should celebrate such a fine human being. Based on this post, I have two responses: One, don't hold your breath, because it's pretty unlikely that Tebow is going to slip. Two, you really should hope karma is a load of nonsense, because if it is, you're the one who's going to fall, not Tebow.

It's fine to criticize Tebow's skills on the field. I do. I think he has no business playing in the NFL, not as a quarterback, anyway. But to criticize him off the field, that's just sick.

An absolute meaningless article. And just who is Ryan Wilson? CBS should be ashamed for even having it on their site. MEANINGLESS.

Todd Marinovich Will Serve as Cautionary Tale to Young Athletes

known as "Robo QB," Todd Marinovich was viewed as the perfect quarterback.

He was trained to become a quarterback by his father Marv from the day he was born. While Marinovich did make it to the NFL, his career was over in the blink on an eye.

Marinovich's father, a lineman and captain at USC, became one of the NFL's first strength and conditioning coaches. He used training techniques to prep Todd for football stardom, starting when he was merely an infant.

The training clearly worked as Marinovich was a star quarterback in high school and was recruited by every major college program. He ultimately chose his father's alma mater, USC, and showed more flashes of greatness.

As a baby, Marinovich was fed only fresh vegetables, fruits, and raw milk.

Marinovich was "America's first test tube athlete", and discussed how his mother encouraged his interest in art, music, and classical Hollywood cinema while banning cartoons as too violent. His father assembled a team of advisers to tutor him on every facet of the game. The article stated that:

He has never eaten a Big Mac or an Oreo or a Ding Dong. When he went to birthday parties as a kid, he would take his own cake and ice cream to avoid sugar and refined white flour. He would eat homemade catsup, prepared with honey. He did consume beef but not the kind injected with hormones. He ate only unprocessed dairy products. He teethed on frozen kidney and liver. When Todd was one month old, Marv was already working on his son's physical conditioning. He stretched his hamstrings. Pushups were next. Marv invented a game in which Todd would try to lift a medicine ball onto a kitchen counter. Marv also put him on a balance beam. Both activities grew easier when Todd learned to walk. There was a football in Todd's crib from day one. "Not a real NFL ball," says Marv. "That would be sick; it was a stuffed ball."

Long after Marinovich's professional career had ended, a columnist named the elder Marinovich one of history's "worst sports father" in history.

So much for "What Happens In Vegas, Stays in Vegas." This wasn't even a newsworthy event for Tim Tebow and we still hear about it. He didn't even make an "O" face while seeing the "O" performance. Not that we should care. I bet the Los Vegas Tourism Board is ticked at the fact that this doesn't even stay within the decadent confines of "Sin City." Well, maybe it's any publicity is good publicity. Inquiring minds gotta know.

Ah, I see "notrorius98" has made is daily "Tebow" appearance.  Talk about a man crush.  Dude wants to curl up with Timmy at night and say prayers or some shlt.

He never saw a Timmy article he couldn't resist, because he knew there would be those of us who, correctly, identified them as trash.

Now, notorious, go put on your onesie and go nite nite.

Why was this even written?  I don't even like the human equivalent to the chia pet, pet rock and parachute pants, but even I can't claim he did anything but look elsewhere anytime he saw a hot chick, naked.
