Though he's made his stance clear enough, rumors persist about when Tim Tebow will finally get a girlfriend. Among the hottest celebrity names to pop up are Kim Kardashian and Lindsey Vonn. Which one, if either, is the best choice?
Failures of Reggie Bush and Kris Humphries grant warnings to Kardashian
Being a good Christian man with basic virtues, it's a small wonder he somehow got connected in the news with Kim Kardashian. Not only is the reality TV starlet light years from the quality person he is, given her questionable business actions, she also doesn't value relationships and marriage as well. In two forays into the sports world, Kardashian dated Reggie Bush, a Heisman trophy winner like Tebow, and married NBA player Kris Humphries. Both relationships spun wildly out of control and have created memorable headlines in the tabloid circuit. Such a history explains why Tim Tebow made the cautious decision by politely declining any notion of pursuing Kardashian. The Denver Broncos quarterback has enough on his plate, already dealing with questions of whether he can hold on to his job next season with a laundry list of solid quarterbacks in the draft and free agency.
Vonn is divorced but also an Olympic star and huge Denver Broncos fan
The other major name constantly circulating around Tebow is skiing champion Lindsey Vonn. They first met at the ESPY sports awards in 2010. The Olympic gold medalist grew drawn to his manners and charm; traits that make him such a draw for interviews. Vonn also doesn't hide her deep love for the Denver Broncos, often attending games with Tebow's parents in the luxury boxes. Perhaps no woman has more in common with him, save for one inescapable truth. Lindsey filed for divorce last year. Her unquestioned experience in relationships makes her an awkward match for Tebow who confesses to having never had a girlfriend all the way through college, a minor miracle given his success. Yet the possibility remains considering Vonn is in no danger of disappearing. Her recent victory at the St. Moritz downhill event clinched the top spot among skiers in the world and putting her on pace for another successful Olympic run in two years. She has much to offer as a sports celebrity. But is she too "advanced" for a newbie like Tebow?
The Denver Broncos would offer an honest answer to this question. They prefer Tim Tebow staying grounded and focused on winning a Super Bowl before dabbling in the love life. Reggie Bush was fortunate he had Drew Brees to take care of that when he dated Kim Kardashian. Sadly Kris Humphries can't say the same. Lindsey Vonn knows something about focus and likely wouldn't offer the same distractions, but she can't escape her troubled past. Whatever Tebow decides to do, he should think long and hard about going the route of celebrity couple. Like fireworks, they have a tendency to explode at their peaks.
