If Tim Tebow wants to command respect in the locker room, he’s going to have to become “less of a tool” and “stop talking about God so much.” (According to sources.)
The NCAA Football legend experienced his first taste of religious backlash this month during a pre-draft Wonderlic examination. (The Wonderlic is a 12-minute written exam administered to gauge player’s intelligence and/or literacy.)
Following the test, Tebow asked if he could lead the classroom in a prayer. You know, to give thanks for the pencils and professional judgment they were about to receive.
His request, however, was denied when another player promptly told him to “Shut the f**k up,” a statement that prompted the rest of the athletes in the room to begin laughing at Tebow.
There was no word whether he ate lunch alone in the cafeteria or received any wedgies during the 40-yard dash, but it appears as if Tebow is off to a rough start in his NFL endeavors.
