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.

Remember the apology they sent out for the rumored Paterno death about how they hold themselves to high journalistic standards?  This very important news article is proof!!!

I was boiling water today and steam rose from the pan in the shape of Tebow's a$$.  Immediately after, a CBS sports writer showed up to kiss it.

be careful there.....you can call Tim Tebow a horrendous QB and I don't quite think he's as dumb as a box of nails....I think you would like to be in his shoes!
BUT whatever I hope and pray you believe in God who has made eternal life possible for people like you through Jesus Christ. He is not some sort of god, HE IS THE GOD!

OK, Tim Tebow is a horrendous NFL quarterback, he's as dumb as a box of nails and he believes in some sort of god.  And, I have to hear about crap like this..........why?
