Tim Tebow Finds Out News About Himself Via ESPN

As you’ve probably heard, GQ used old photos of Tim Tebow for one of its September covers (Cam Newton has the other). Tebow didn’t agree to sit for a shoot, so they went to the archives, and voila, there’s a September cover. (N.B.: For anyone complaining about this—Mike Florio is particularly worked up—this is a really common practice for magazines. This is by no means a crime.)

Anyway, photos of the GQ September cover hit the web on Tebow’s birthday (i.e., the day ESPN lost its fucking mind). And how’d he find out about it? Act surprised:

[The photo shoot] was something that I think I did maybe six years ago in college. Honestly the first time I heard [about] it was when we were in the cafeteria and it was on ESPN. That’s when I found out, so it was kind of a shocker to me as well.


ESPN reminds Tim Tebow of old photo shoots. ESPN wishes Tim Tebow a happy birthday. ESPN keeps Tim Tebow up to date on all things Tim Tebow. ESPN: the best executive assistant you could ever have.
