The NFL has a sticky situation on their hands, the San Diego Chargers were caught using a banned substance called Stickum, to give the team a competitive advantage to holding onto the ball.
The adhesive substance was confiscated during the Charger’s Oct. 15 game against the Denver Broncos. Despite the performance enhancing goo, the Broncos won the game, 35-24. The substance was sent to both Broncos and league offices, and the Chargers now face a fine and a possible loss of a draft pick.
But according to Chargers head coach Norv Turner, no Stickum was used. “Nobody in this organization has used Stickum in any game,”Turner said. “The question involved a towel that has been used by this organization for over 10 years. It’s used by a lot of teams in this league. The towel is used to dry the balls, dry the gloves that the players wear and their arms. The league is looking into the towel. That’s about where it’s at.”
Now that Peyton Manning has signed with the Denver Broncos, Tim Tebow’s days in the Mile High City are numbered. But that doesn’t mean everyone is over Tebow-Mania. Despite reports, Tebow was being dropped by Jockey, the underwear company wants everyone to know, he at least still has one job!
A rep for Jockey told TMZ, “Jockey brought Tim Tebow on as a spokesperson before he took his first professional snap and even before he finalized his contract with an NFL team. Jockey supports him 100% and we look forward to continuing our great relationship with Tim.”
Looks like we will know who Taylor Swift’s next song is about. The country singer was spotted on a dinner date with Tim Tebow. The New York Post is reporting the the pair had dinner at Toscanova Italian restaurant in Century City, California on Monday night.
A source told Clevvertv.com, who first reported the story, “After dinner, he walked her out,” a source told the website, adding that it was unclear whether the get-together was a date. “Then he walked back in to join two other people. I think they may both have been with their agents.”
This is the second Tebow-Swift sighting this week. At a WME pre-Oscar party on Friday, the couple were chatting alone in a corner. Swift joins a list of celebrities interested in the Denver Broncos quarterback including Katy Perry and Kim Kardashian.
Will Tim Tebow be the next NFL player to trade in his cleats for his dancing shoes? Dancing with the Stars’ Karina Smirnoff is campaigning for the Denver Broncos quarterback to join the cast of the celebrity dance competition.
Smirnoff told People.com, ““All I want for my birthday is for Tim Tebow to dance on Dancing with the Stars. Tim is a very talented athlete, that was clear when we saw his performance this past season with Denver.”
But Smirnoff is not alone in catching Tebowmania, producers of the show are also interested in the highly controversial quarterback. The 14th Season of Dancing With The Stars does not premire until March. Past NFL players include Emmit Smith, Jerry Rice, Chad Ochocinco, Hines Ward and Kurt Warner.
