I know I'm super late about posting this, but I can't half-assedly run a blog about sports and rain without mentioning the big news from New York Jets camp Saturday: your boy Tim Tebow running shirtless in the rain. Yeah, I know, the photos and video have been everywhere, even on the back page of one of the New York tabloids, but as I just wrote, I have to at least post a photo to validate the existence of – sure, it's on it's last breath – The Rainout Blog.
So, what did Tebow have to say about his Bo Derek-like (see below) moment? As usual, he went all "ah shucks, I can't believe people pay attention me," on us. Here's what he told reporters:
"It was funny. A few guys gave me a hard time, but honestly I don't think anybody knew until they saw it that night on ESPN. It was funny. More than anything it was probably just Mark (Sanchez) and Greg (McElroy) giving me a hard time and then everybody else catches on after that... My shirt felt like 20 pounds because we had been in the rain and then I was signing autographs for like 20 or 30 minutes. I didn't really think you all would be filming it and taking pictures."
I asked my wife if she had seen the video of Timmy's shirtless rain jog, and she curled up her nose as if I had once again asked her to try eating one of my world famous peanut butter and apple burgers. (Those things are delicious, by the way.) I'm not sure if she's being honest, but she said, "most women don't care about Tim Tebow. It's just all you guys and your man crushes on the guy."
Is she right? Yeah, I don't think so either. Sure, a lot of dudes have fallen for Tebow, but we all know the ladies love this guy, too. Am I wrong?
