Lindsay Vonn Tebows After Race, is Friends With Tim Tebow’s Brother (Picture)

Lindsey Vonn won a World Cup super-G on Beaver Creek’s Birds of Prey Wednesday. I have no idea what that means, but she won a race.  What was more important was what she did after the race.  Since she is now friends with Tim Tebow’s older brother, Robby Tebow, Vonn decided to do what this fetus, this NBA star, this soccer player, and this NFL player have all done before her.  She dropped down and started Tebowing after the race. Check it out:

According to the Denver Post, Vonn is currently going through a divorce after being married for four years.  She insists she is not dating anyone and said she met Robby at the ESPY awards and they became “good friends.”  She asked Robby for permission before busting out the Tebow at the podium.

“I asked him if Tim would be upset if I did it,” Vonn said. “I said that if I won in Colorado, I would do it, ‘Go Broncos.’ And I did it. Gotta represent.”

When in Colorado…

Lindsey Vonn Takes Sophomore Parker McDonald to Homecoming Dance

Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn made one young boy’s dream come true when she said yes after being asked to go to his homecoming dance Thursday.

Parker McDonald is a sophomore at the Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy in Colorado. He did not have a date for his school’s homecoming dance Friday, so he decided to ask Vonn, who was visiting the school, to be his date.

“I thought, ‘I need a date and there’s Lindsey Vonn. I’ll ask her!’” McDonald said. “She walked by my lunch table and I whipped out the question.”

Vonn recounted the tale on her Facebook page Friday.

“Yesterday I visited the Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy and while I was eating lunch with all the students a 15 year old boy named Parker asked me if I would be his date for their homecoming dance which is tonight. When Parker asked me he was cute, nervous and very polite so of course I said YES!

“All through school growing up I never got the chance to go to a school dance so I’m excited for tonight!”

Vonn was in town to train with the U.S. Ski Team. Why not mix in a little fun while she’s doing some work? Hopefully her husband didn’t mind sharing her for a night.

Vonn has been a swimsuit model and made Maxim’s Hot 100 list. She also made Parker the coolest kid in school, and a national hero.

On behalf of every guy who was too afraid to ask the hot girl to the dance, we salute you Parker.

Ranking the Women of the ESPYs

The 2010 ESPY Awards have come and gone without much to do or buzz surrounding the event.  Surprise, surprise.  Seth Meyers was certainly a bright spot.  The host and SNL star killed it with his monologue and told a great Greg Oden joke that flew over almost everyone’s head.  Chris Johnson’s get-up was questionable at best, but there’s at least one in every crowd, right?

Thankfully, the lovely ladies pictured above were in attendance along with plenty of other red carpet jaw-droppers.  With so many woman putting such an extensive amount of effort into making themselves look their best for the occasion, it wouldn’t be fair if we didn’t rank them accordingly.  Therefore, we’ve put together a list of the hottest women at the 2010 ESPYs that I’m sure you can debate until you’re blue in the face.  Here’s what we came up with:

Celebrating the Top Females in Sports for Women’s History Month

March is National Women’s History Month and this got me thinking. We always hear about our superstar male athletes on a day-to-day basis but we rarely hear about the gals.  So today I want to salute all the beautiful, talented, and accomplished ladies (that means no Anna Kournikova, sorry guys) in the sports world.

Candace Parker: Not only is this girl gorgeous, but she can play basketball with the best of them. The L.A. Sparks’ superstar has been called the female Jordan and for good reason — she was the first women to dunk in an NCAA tournament game and she helped the University of Tennessee Lady Vols win back-to-back NCAA championships in 2007 and 2008. Parker is not only a great basketball player but she also has a squeaky clean image; she makes a great role model for future athletes.

Jennie Finch: This stunning 6’1″ beauty is a pitcher for the Chicago Bandits.  She has quite the list of accomplishments on her resume to prove her talent. Finch has two Olympic medals — gold (2004) and silver (2008) — and she’s a two-time world champion. Finch is also a two-time Pan American gold medalist and was named co-pitcher of the year in 2005. Sadly for the eager men out there, not only will Finch not be doing Playboy anytime soon, but she’s also hitched to Houston Astros pitcher Casey Daigle.
