Dolphins WR Brian Hartline: Tim Tebow is like the Kardashians
The buzz that surrounds Tim Tebow can hardly be explained. You have either seen it and understand it or you haven’t and you don’t.
Tebow won two championships at Florida and is a tremendous role model, but plenty of athletes have had similar success without the constant media spotlight and sexy Jesus poses. Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline doesn’t understand all the hype, and he had an interesting way of expressing his opinion on Thursday.
“That’s you guys, how much you love (him),” Hartline told the media according to the Sun Sentinel. “Everybody loves him, but the same people go with the Kardashians. I don’t know what they did, either. They’re on (magazine) covers everywhere. I mean, honestly. I know they’re really good people, do a lot of charity work. I just don’t know how they got started.”
Most of us would have an easier time telling you how Tebow got popular than how the Kardashians gained their fame — especially if we couldn’t make mention of Kim’s butt. Hartline instantly realized how his comment was going to be perceived and backed off a bit, mentioning that Tebow has done more than Kim and Khloe including winning with the Gators and Broncos.
The damage was already done at that point, however. And by damage I mean the next time Tebow sees Hartline he’s probably going to tell him how talented he is and how he wishes him the best, thus adding to the allure that is Tebowmania.
