Normal Kid Shocks Sleazy Journalists

That's Tim Tebow, star quarterback of the Florida Gators. A reporter asked him, essentially: "Are you a virgin?"

One proper answer would have been: "That's not the kind of question a gentleman asks, or answers, in public."

But, in a way, Tim's answer is even better. From LifeSiteNews:

"At 21 years of age and graced with boyish good looks, Tebow is one of the most talked about rising stars of the NCAA; but the football superstar literally left reporters speechless last week when he answered a question during a press conference about whether or not he is 'saving himself' for marriage.

'Yes I am,' said Tebow briefly, who then indicated he was ready for the next question. However, in the video of the press conference, a reporter is heard stumbling over his words in the background as he tries to ask a follow-up question. Tebow then laughs, obviously reacting to the reactions of the reporters in the room.

'I think y'all were stunned by that,' he says. 'Y'all can't even ask a question. Wow. I mean, I was ready for that question. I don't think y'all were.'"

It sounds like Tim's got the self-possession necessary for an NFL quarterback already. But from what I hear Florida needs to let him throw the ball more!

Great to see that kind of mindset from such a young man, especially one with a life like his. He is already a super star at such a young age and seems to be handling it quite well.

God Bless,
