Last week, a Denver resident tweeted to me that Tim Tebow was rumored to be dating newly-single Olympic skiing champ Lindsey Vonn. I brushed if off as a rumor, but remembered that the two did pose for a photo (with Brooklyn Decker) at the ESPYs over the summer. Wait … posing for a photo … Vonn getting a divorce … both living in Colorado … maybe there’s something there?
According to Vonn, she’s not dating Tebow. She attended Denver’s thrilling 13-10 overtime win against Chicago Sunday, sitting in the Tebow family box. She wrote about it for the Denver Post, adding, perhaps strangely, that she’s just friends with his family.
A lot of people are wondering what’s up with me and the Tebows. I’m just friends with the family. I met Tim and his brother Pete at the ESPY Awards like three or four years ago in the gym — we were working out there. I spent more time with Tim and his brother at the V Foundation Golf Tournament, and this year at the ESPYs.
Tim presented me with my ESPY award this year, and we kind of chatted. I said, “If you want to come up to Vail and ski, let me know.” Robby invited me to one of their games a few weeks ago. Then we ended up being able to race at Beaver Creek, so he came up for that last Wednesday.
I pretty much know their whole family now. They’re great people. It’s pretty awesome to be able to hang out with them — and to be able to witness the amazing things Tim and the Broncos can do.
Then, for those still in doubt, she tweeted Monday that the two definitely weren’t dating. If they were, the couple sure would have some tall, athletic, good-looking kids, that’s for sure.
Got that? Tim Tebow does not break up marriages. He just wins football games. That’s what he does.
