More than 26,000 people flocked to San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium to hear New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow speak about his relationship with his dad, Bob, at a grand Father's Day event on Sunday.
The Christian athlete, who was the special guest for a ceremony titled, "Father's Day 2012: Encouraging Men To Live, Love & Lead," in San Diego, Calif., stressed the need for role models for the next generation, and shared how his dad was one for him.
It's "so frustrating," he said, that "you have in today's society so many famous athletes" but few good examples. "If we would come together and be great role models, it would be amazing to see how the next generation turns out," U-T San Diego quoted him as saying. more >>

Mark Sanchez, the New York Jets' starting quarterback, does not seem to be as concerned with backup QB Tim Tebow taking his spot as the mainstream media. In fact, Sanchez admitted that he cannot compete with Tebow in the gym.
Despite speculation about whether 25-year-old Sanchez would get along with Tebow, 24, the starting QB spoke about his respect for his newest teammate in an interview with Yahoo Sports! Sanchez admitted that although Tebow does get a great deal of attention, he could handle it.
"Tim is making whatever he makes, he's a good leader, a great person, a hard worker and he plays quarterback and he can do other stuff," Sanchez said. "Yeah, does he come with more attention than other players? Sure, but who cares? To me, if I can't handle that, I shouldn't play here." more >>
A new parody song created by radio personality and comedian Artie Lange pokes fun at Tim Tebow's virginity through the melody of the Rolling Stones hit, "She's A Rainbow."
The lyrics to the song, which has been retitled, "He's Saint Tim Tebow," are explicit and alternate back and forth between focusing on the New York Jets star's virginity and suggesting he has God-like powers. Lange performs the song himself, but with less-than Keith Richards-like vocals.
"Horny girls you must beware, he doesn't care, he's Saint Tim Tebow. He's a quarterback who has no sex, I'm so perplexed, he's Saint Tim Tebow," Lange sings. more >>
A teen Tebowing during his graduation ceremony Saturday caused his diploma to be withheld by Florida school officials, who didn't want the high school senior's actions to be an "inspiration" for other antics.

They underestimated him; he Tebowed on stage- dropping to one knee to pray- while parents and students erupted in laughter.
"I just thought it was fun," the teen told Naples News. "I was just doing it to make graduation memorable." more >>
