Is the NFL’s saving grace dating an Olympic ski star? According to online reports, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow and downhill ski champion Lindsey Vonn are an item.
A few things have helped fuel this rumor, like Vonn announcing last month that she plans to divorce her husband of four years. This coupled with the athlete taking pictures of herself “Tebowing” and being spotted in a private box with the Tebow family watching Sunday’s Broncos game have seemed to further the dating rumor, but Vonn writes in a column for the Denver Post that that’s just not the case.
“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.’ [Tim's other brother] 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.”
We guess that clears that up.
