New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow surprised his Twitter followers late last week by starting a spur of the moment trivia competition, in which the winner received items autographed by two other football stars.
On Friday, the quarterback said via Twitter that he had just received a "VIP kit" for the NCAA Football 13 video game, which included the game and two miniature helmets that had been signed by fellow Heisman Trophy winners Barry Sanders and Robert Griffin III. He then asked three questions, and the first of his followers to get the answer right received the prize package.
Looking back to his college days at the University of Florida, Tebow asked, "When I threw my first ever jump pass as a Gator, who was it against, who caught it & what was the final score in that game?" more >>

All it takes is a 30-second perusal of the supermarket tabloids to confirm what you already know:
There is an excessive, if not obsessive, draw to celebrity in the culture. From Tim Tebow to Kate Middleton to Kim Kardashian, people are drawn to certain individuals, for any number of reasons.
But a fascination with the famous is by no means a new phenomenon. It manifests itself differently today than 50 years ago, but human nature is still the same. Often an obsession with celebrity is marked by a sort of innocently conceived voyeuristic spirit, but there have been times when it's had tragic consequences. more >>

While guest hosting on "Access Hollywood Live" Monday, Harrison revealed that he spoke to the 24-year-old Jets backup quarterback about appearing on the series to find love.
