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."


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.

Is Tebow on one of those "And I'm A Mormon" ads?  Their spokesperson?

Yeah, wt. Bang your head against the wall as hard as you can until you knock yourself out. Then wake up and do it again. That would block the articles.

Earthly temptations do not affect Tim Tebow

It is simply amazing how people react to the Tebow articles, more so the ones asking why this article is even here. For the people who hate Tim Tebow and the articles written about him, WHY ARE YOU EVEN OPENING UP THE LINKS TO THE ARTICLES! The best part is you read the articles and even comment on them! If CBSsports writes an article and notices that it received a ton of views and posts, they will continue to write about it, in this case Tim Tebow! If you want the Tebow articles to stop, COMPLETLEY IGNORE THEM AND DONT OPEN THEM UP! It is not rocket science people. I personally am a Tebow fan so I will continue to read articles about him. But for those who don’t want to see a Tebow article again, DO NOT, AND I REPEAT DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK OR COMMENT ON IT!

This just in!!!  Tebow played in a stadium where someone was drinking. It was a struggle not to ask the beer man for a Bud, (maybe his throws would have been a little tighter if he did) but he stuck with water. It was also reported that he plays in Denver where there is a huge population that loves donkeys. It is said that many of the fans would like to F*ck a donkey.

Earthly temptations do not affect Tim Tebow

I am so tired of all the Tebow mania articles. Give it a rest already. The Super Bowl is upon us and every Sports network is still raving about one of the worst starting QB’s in the league! So Tim Tebow is a great man who believes in God and has morals. God Bless him but It does not change the fact that he is a below average Quarterback that will never start another playoff game again in his career unless he changes positions and moves to Running back! Move on sports writers………&hel
