Lawrence Taylor to Tim Tebow: Find a nice girl and let some of that pressure off
When you ask Lawrence Taylor what advice he would give to Tim Tebow for Tebow to be able to make it in New York, you have to know there is a risk of receiving a highly inappropriate response. The producers of Showtime’s “Inside the NFL” probably knew what they were getting themselves into, but they decided to run with it anyway on this week’s edition of the show.
In the episode of “Inside the NFL” that aired on Wednesday night, Taylor was a special guest and participated in a segment called “Dear Insiders,” which raises questions that are phrased as though they were written by athletes and coaches. According to Game On!, the question about Tebow was written as follows.
“Dear Lawrence, like you, I’m a clean-living, hard-hitting, good ol’ southern boy trying to make it in The Big Apple. What was the secret to your success? Thanks in advance, (signed) Tim from the Meadowlands.”
As shocking as it may be, L.T. took the question as an opportunity to poke fun at Tebow for still being a virgin.
“I would say he would have to go to church, Temple — wherever he goes — find a nice girl,” Taylor said while mixing in some ‘colorful’ language. “I mean marry her if he has to, but he’s got to get some of that pressure off.”
So there you have it. If Tebow wants to succeed in New York, he has to get some. Perhaps he can turn his lifetime membership to the museum of sex into something. Or maybe the offer Rob Gronkowski made over the summer still stands. Either way, L.T. seems to think this is the only way Teebs can survive for the long haul.
